In these 8 week classes Dr. Kaneko will be teaching two Qigong styles: Baduanjin with 8 silk movements that stretch the extremities, spine, and meridians, and Tree Qigong stances, which are gentle but transformational with vigorous abdominal breathing.
Daoyin is another exercise he will teach to generate the qi energy and blood flow to vital organs. Daoyin stimulates the vital points and meridians in order to clean the stagnation of the various systems, vitalize the tissues and improve the circulation on a cellular level. Dr. Kaneko also incorporates a focus on building a strong faith in the body’s own healing process. For Daoyin, 15 movements that utilize the pressure points and abdominal breath will be taught.
Handouts will be supplied, and additional teaching material is available upon request.
Face mask is required. Bring yoga mat, or something to comfortably sit or lie on, and wear clothing for exercise.
