Based on ancient Qigong exercises and Japanese Shiatsu exercises, Meridian Touch Japanese Qigong is a restorative series of movements that anyone can do. Using deep belly breaths and gentle relaxation the meridians (energy channels) are opened allowing ki to flow promoting body-mind synchronization and awareness. Never reaching beyond our comfort level, paradoxically as we practice “the Art of Letting Go” we melt into a state of balance. The movements also relate to the Five Elements (Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water) and their healing qualities that we will explore in class.
