No in-person yoga offerings for now as we focus on building our new space. you may join in contemplative practice here, or connect with other local practitioners in the coco yoga communityFacebook forum.
We begin with a sequence of standing moving qigong to warm up and encourage our qi to course through all the meridians of the body. Once we've activated our energies and loosened up our joints, we practice coordinated breath with movement exercises, which apply specific breathing cycles and engage the body locks to focus our qi and direct it up the spine to the higher chakras. These exercises aim to restore balance in the body--moving forward and back, left and right, up and down--to restore harmony in the brain's hemispheres and align in our center. These fundamental practices effect a sense of great stillness and peace, which supports our following practice with more subtle qigong internal meditations. After focusing within, we expand our energies outward once more, closing our practice with meridian stretches, tapping, and brushing.
