We will be going through a simple movement routine everyday to activate our Dan Tian (energy centers) as well as to open the channels and meridians, this includes a tapping/drumming exercise which helps us reconnect to our tissues, relax the mind and body and allow the subtle energy to flow naturally. The routine movements originate from 'Tai Chi rejuvenating practice (太極返還功)' and 'Lotus Qi Gong (蓮花養氣功)', both emphasize nurturing and cultivating Qi through gentle movements and mental imagery.

We will learn new movements and revisit old movements everyday to gain familiarity, through that, settle our mind into deeper awareness. The sessions give you a taste of how the mind and body work inseparably in creating a healthy state of being. It also aims to prepare you to be able to go home and continue practicing yourself.
