Introduction to Qigong

Introduction to Qigong:
Offered Tuesday, February 9 and 16, 10:30-noon

Qigong is the art of learning energy placement through meditative, mindful, focussed movement. Five element theory, sacred geometry, energy meridians and quantum theory are utilized. It is very helpful in rebalancing the mind, emotions, body and spirit for improved health and well-being. The practice in class carries over to the practice outside of class in that everything is energy. Qi is the universal life force all around us and when we are able to feel it our own life is experienced in another way and it becomes a way of life. Wear loose clothing, bring an open mind and learn this 3000 year old ancient art. The best way to understand qigong is to experience it.

Please call Annette Mullett 734-658-5755 to reserve your spot.
Please arrive 10 -15 minutes early in that class will start promptly at 10:30.
Cost for these 2 classes is by donation.
Future times and classes to be determined by class needs.

Spiritual Circle of Life

 

 Sunday, May 18, 5  – 6:30 pm

 To celebrate and honor the women in our lives who have inspired, encouraged and guided us. Beginning with a brief yoga practice and meditation, followed by a sharing of recollections and conversation.

In this month of May, we honor our mother, the woman who gave us life. Since the mystical moment of physical birth, our spiritual being continues to be shaped by our mothers, and also by encounters and relationships with many women who come into our lives, perhaps for a pivotal moment or perhaps sharing our lives for an extended time. Through their actions, influence and sometimes simply by the power of their very being we grow and develop.  We may become kinder, stronger, more insightful, more patient, more giving, more confident, more independent; more fully who we were created to be.

Join us in the celebration of our spiritual guides as we affirm each of them and their impact on our lives. Bring a memento, recollection, photo or poem to use in our celebration. 
Cost: $10
Registration: at Northville or Livonia Yoga Centers

or by e-mail to NorthvilleYogaCenter.com or LivoniaYogaCenter.com
