CHI KUNG LESSONS
standing our ground
Chi Kung lessons introduces awake and in-the-body explorations around upright stillness, posture, energy management and organic rhythms.

HOW IT WORKS
During the course of the lessons, you will explore in your body the architecture of standing and some of the fundamental forces that inform our stance in life:

curling
lengthening

sinking
rising
reaching out
contraction
boundaries
expansion
balance


The content of the lessons adjust to the season and welcome whatever is happening for oneself, in the axis of now.
You can attend per session or apply for the whole series.

Chi Kung Lessons are being offered both online and in-person, at the green oasis of Amsterdam, De Meditatietuin.


FOR WHO? This classes are meant for everyone who is looking for an effective combination between somatic & energy awareness practices, who wishes to foster clarity, flow and agency in how we stand in life and nurture health.

We engage in easy-to-follow practices, such as:
- still chi kung (zhan zhuang, archetypical postures for health)
- slow movement
- walking chi kung
- meditations
- auto massage

"I felt almost straight away in the practice really connected, still and present.
And as it continued it really afforded me such deep internal experience, of different aspects of my body, my energy body, my boundaries, my connection to that beyond my skin. 
Gosh, it was so good, I really loved it!! And I have to say that it is such a powerful Nature Resonance practice, really deeply dropping into that place of BEingness. 
I have been reaching for words to describe that state, BEingness is the best I’ve come up with so far.
But I think you know what I mean, in that primary state, which is baseline wellness for us, and which is our truest nature, the animal of our bodies, but more than that again, the energetics, the synergy with all around. That state we can touch into when we spend time in living spaces, in wilderness .
Suffice to say that this practice is such a direct gateway to that. Wow, I’m so impressed!
Thank you so much for the chance to practice with you, I’m really grateful!”
