Early Morning Sessions

  • Welcome the early morning with some gentle Qigong movements

    Convention participants can meet in the main meeting room at 7:30 every morning. The session will include Qigong and meditation and will last approximately 45 minutes. If the weather is good we can try to find a suitable spot outside.

    We all need gentle exercises. The Qigong movements are easy to follow, will give you energy and tune your body and mind. Slow, repetitive movements, of opening and closing, up and down, circular, diagonal, turning. We will explore how to find stillness in movement and movement in stillness.

    Qigong is part of Chinese medicine and consists of movement, powerful positions and meditation which helps Qi (life energy) flow through the meridians (energy channels) in the body. The traditional Chinese meditative exercises of Qigong have been used throughout history in the pursuit of a healthy, long life. Alexander Technique helps you to be present and concious of your movements and the ability to stop and direct your body will deepen the effect of Qigong. These two disciplines complement each other in a very natural way.
