2021 The year of the Metal Ox
Saturday Morning at the Grove!
As of mid-June, I am now offering weekly classes in Stanley Park at the Hidden Grove, as long as the weather cooperates, and I am not out camping. They start at 10:30 am and run until about 11:45 am, with both an exercise and a meditation component. There’s nothing like practicing qi gong in nature! Let me know if you’re interested, so I can keep you updated on weather and vacation cancellations.
Cost: $20 (cash or eTransfer)
Parking: There is a parking lot at the foot of Nelson St, where it runs into Stanley Park, that is very close to the Grove
Online Classes from Daoessence
As you no doubt already know, all in person classes have been suspended for the duration. But we still need to connect! Qi Gong is a great way to connect to higher guidance, to the spirit of nature, to our own higher selves and to our community. It’s an excellent way to balance the flow of Qi within our bodies and to prepare ourselves for the challenges ahead.
I am currently teaching every Wednesday at 10 am PST (see instructions below) and once a month I teach with Just Yoga Studios (look even further below).
Classes will open at 9:45 for people to check in, resolve any technical connectivity issues and have a little time to connect with community. We’ll keep the meeting open afterwards as well, to answer questions and continue to foster community.
Classes will be held on the Zoom Meeting app. In order to join, send an email to email@example.com to let me know that you would like to attend, and when payment is received, you will be sent a link to the class with more details.
I’m now offering access to a recording of each class for the week following the class. The cost to access these recordings is the same as the cost of a class, so if you were to both do the class and have access to the recording, it would be for the price of two classes. Each recording retires the day of the next week’s class.
Pricing (Canadian $)
$10 for a single class, $45 for a package of 5 classes and $80 for a package of 10 classes.
Methods of Payment
eTransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org or direct transfer (if you bank at Vancity) work the best. If you would prefer to use a credit card, you will be sent an invoice through Paypal. This is a great option for people not living in Canada. You could also send a check in the mail. If you have another preferred option, let me know.
Monthly Sunday morning Qi Gong Classes
Every fourth Sunday at 10:45 am, I’ll be teaching with Just Yoga. This is a 1 hour class. The cost for a drop-in is $13.00. You have to register thru Just Yoga’s website to attend this class. Spring dates are: March 21st, 2021
These movement classes use as a foundation the Taoist Five Element series, which focus on balancing the acupuncture meridians and the major organ systems of the body. The exercises we learn are designed to restore homeostasis to the body. They are especially good for detoxifying the emotions. We incorporate healing sounds and guided meditations.
