Qigong for Nourishing the Heart
23:29 | Mimi Kuo-Deemer
In addition to pumping and circulating our blood tirelessly all day long, our hearts also work to metabolise all life experience. As such, it deserves to be nurtured and appreciated. This is exactly what we will do in this qigong class! Qigong Fire element meridian forms are followed by practices that cultivate playful intentions and healing energy. All forms will be done standing, but they can also be done seated. No mat necessary! All levels of mobility welcome, these practices are accessible to all bodies.

Qigong for a Compassionate Heart
24:18 | Mimi Kuo-Deemer
Compassion is a natural quality that begins to arise when we begin to free ourselves from the fetters that bind the heart. Qigong forms that help us embody the freedom and spaciousness of the heart will then lead into a practice that awakens our compassion. All forms will be done standing, but they can also be done seated. No mat necessary!

Qigong for Healing the Heart
13:48 | Mimi Kuo-Deemer
When beset by painful circumstances, the heart can harden and become numb. Nourishment and calm are what slowly begin to heal the heart when it’s been impacted by the difficulties of life, particularly heartache, sadness, and grief. This qigong class includes a short talk, meditation, and gentle movements to help the heart on its journey to healing. This class can be done anywhere - is demonstrated standing, but can be done seated, or is a very beautiful practice when lying down as well.

All forms will be done standing, but they can also be done seated. No props or mat necessary!
