I spent ten days in Mexico last month as part of my hibernation month, and everyday from 7-9am I went outside to do Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and sitting meditation. After some days, I opened to a new experience or level of doing Tai Chi that is gratifying. I made subtle, mechanical changes in my footwork that led to energy shifts which are subtle but oh-so-deep. These practices definitely shift, adjust, and attune our energies in beneficial ways. I am so grateful for these practices and love sharing them with my students in my Qi Gong and Tai Chi classes. Even after 20 years of practice, I continue to learn and grow in my practice. I’ve introduced a new aspect to my Qi Gong classes to include teaching how to discover, cultivate, and direct “qi”. It’s interesting, fun, and valuable.
May you soak in the beauty of winter and bear up (joke) well with her many challenges!
