Yeah! Spring is finally here and I am ready to resume group classes in McGolrick Park. I can speak for many students who worked with me last year, that most enjoyed the opportunity to get outside and enjoy the park as well as learn qigong.
Springtime in Chinese medicine is the season of rejuvenation and cleansing. It is the time to eat your greens! (and specifically dandelion greens as their bitter taste relates to the liver organ). The liver is connected to the wood element and therefore it makes perfect sense that it is the organ associated to Spring. Wood flourishes during the Spring and is also the Earth's filtration system. Similarly the liver is our bodies filtration system.
In the Chinese healing tradition Spring is the time for walks. So along side our usual qigong practice, and in honor of the season, we will learn the healing walk of Master Gou lin as taught to me by Sat Hon.
All classes are weather dependent so please sign-up to let me know which class you plan to attend and I will keep you informed of any changes.
As the weather is still cool, please wear appropriate clothing and shoes to move. We will warm up!
Looking forward to seeing you in the park.

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.
