Qigong to Charge your Core Energy
Qigong is the Chinese word for energy cultivation. The roots of Qigong come from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Daoist shamanism and alchemy.
The practice combines flowing movement, breath and intention to balance and transform our life force energy, called ‘Qi’ to its greatest potential. The energy field of Chiang Mai has a powerful connection to heaven and earth that supports our core energy.
In this session, Marisa will guide you through classic Qigong and internal alchemy practices to connect to these forces and activate your core energy through the Central meridian channel.
This routine is great for everyone to boost the immune system, protective energy, confidence and promote an overall feeling of fulfilment and grace. This balancing and dynamic class is suitable for all levels, body types and can be adjusted to your physical needs.
Comfy and stretchy clothing suitable for movement is recommended.
