Since the summer, I began giving qigong classes at the invitation of Tessa Chandler of Inwood Movement. Tessa is a long time Feldenkrais teacher and recently began her studies of qigong. To my delight, a really wonderful group of people interested in qigong and it's health/healing potential began to collect. Inwood is a lovely, relaxed environment to practice…and there is a park with hiking trails just across the street…in Manhattan!
We are planning classes to begin January 9 on Wednesday and Fridays.
Please visit Inwood's website for more info.
So excited that we will be having our first Qigong Intensive/Training to begin the New Year and herald our new sessions starting in January. It may be sort of an oxymoron considering qigong practice is Taoist (some think of wu wei as being laid back and relaxed), but Taoism is intense…and relaxing…and rejuvenating. The process of cooking can be intense, and qigong is a bit like cooking: there are times to collect ingredients, times to prepare, times to cook, times to simmer, times to rest, and times to ingest.
It is all part of a natural flow of living.
has studied qigong and taiji with Sat Chuen Hon, a Taoist and native of China for several years. Mr. Hon has asked her to carry on this Taoist healing tradition to help benefit others. Ms. Fox received her MFA in painting from Yale University in 1997. Her studio practice, writing as well as her study of dance and movement have been woven together over many years into a rich exploration and inner search. She is a published poet and has recently helped prepare and edit Sat Hon's writings on Qigong and Taoist stories for publication.
