We instruct you through a whole-body stretching program combining Pilates and meridian clearing practices. The program takes place under the vigorous sun with the help of balls, rings and other devices. You focus on breath control by activating the diaphragm to improve the activity of the deep muscles. You increase awareness of the neutral position and the range of the pelvic movement to activate the deep muscles. You learn the right connection between the head, neck, spine, chest and pelvis for proper body posture. The program is suitable for all ages, tailored to personal needs, and is great at increasing vitality. No previous experience is required.
We guide you into the meditative experience of the Tibetan singing bowls, where the vibrations stir the alpha and theta brain waves and help the body enter a state of deep serenity. You feel the self-healing forces of the body activated by the impact of yoga nidra and the effect of the sounds.
NLP interventions and guided visualization are softly integrated in the singing bowls mindfullness sessions. You get in touch with the true needs of your organism as a whole, awakening your inner wisdom that makes deep and positive change sustainable. You explore psychosomatic symptoms and listen to their hidden healing message from a holistic perspective. Neuro-lingustic programming is applied in a group setting to compliment change in any area of your life, relationships, career, health, or spirituality. Systemic family or group constellations may be offered to enable you towards a positive transformation in your life.
We offer you a series of both dynamic and static QiGong, combining motion sequences as well as static healing postures. You become familiar with deep meditation techniques that put the self in the centre. You enact ZhiNeng QiGong, a type of moving meditation that puts the same emphasis on body and mind, activates the energy channels of the body, nourishes the organs and body systems and increases mental and physical consciousness. Zhineng QiGong combines “Qi” the energy of life, “Gong” daily effort and practice, “Zhi” wisdom and intelligence, and “Neng” ability in all its aspects.
