This course is an introduction to movement, sound, tapping and self-massage to enhance your health and wellbeing. The movements are often flowing and fun, bringing together body, breath and mind in a moving meditation. Practices will be standing, seated, and lying down. They are easy to learn and can be adapted if you have limitations of movement or energy. The focus of this course is to develop familiarity and build some daily practices based on the Four Seasons, Calligraphy Health and Long Life Qigong. A booklet will be provided. The invitation from Ilona McGavock is to gently challenge your boundaries and discover more freedom of body, and joy of heart and mind.
