Qigong Meditations For Health & Vitality

Mimi offers two qigong visualisation meditations in this practice. The first is called microcosmic orbit. Microcosmic orbit works with major channels of the body, the yin meridian (ren mai) and yang meridian (du mai) on the front and back channels of the body respectively. Known as the conception and governing channels. These meridians help regulate the flow of qi to the other 12 meridians and organs of the body. Circulating good flow of energy in the main rivers means tributaries can receive the flow more effortlessly. The second is called an organ-gemstone meditation. This meditation is one to do any time you feel like you are about to get sick; 90% of the time, it will prevent a cold or sore throat from coming on.

A gentle, restorative yoga class with variations of two key restorative postures - Supta Baddha Konāsana, Reclined Cobbler and Savāsana, Relaxation pose. This class sets up the poses, and then you'll need to find the time to practice.

There is a true sense of healing from the position in which the body is positioned in Reclined Cobbler, there may be a sense of vulnerability as the soles of the feet touch and knees are apart, but you can always take another blanket to cover the knees. Savāsana allows all the benefits of our previous postures (in any style of yoga) to come together in this final restful pose. This class is perfect if you've had a tough day and you're looking to unwind, or you simply are looking for some home self-care. You will need: 2 bolsters, 1 strap, 2 bricks, 2 blankets and an eye pillow (1 x pillow folded in half, wrapped in a towel and pushed into a pillowcase makes a bolster or indeed a sleeping bag tied together | A scarf or robe belt can be used as a yoga belt | 2 x hard back books can be used as blocks | 2 x Bath Towels can be used instead of blankets).
