This course is a Qigong Retreat where we will be practicing all three series of Inner Qigong and showing the developmental yoga that goes with each series.
Inner Qigong is a system of self exploration, each series focusing on one of three fundamental energy systems in the body-mind.
Series One focuses on Organ Tone, Expansion, Expression, Openness, Clear Boundaries and Interchange between Self and Other. All these functions are related and are developed in children through archetypal movements which follow the meridians of the Yang Ming and Tai Yin.
Series Two focuses on Alignment of the Skeleton, Alignment of Body and Mind, Understanding of the difference between Inner Motivation and Outer Conditioning, finding Clarity. All these functions are related and are developed in children through archetypal movements following the meridians of the Shao Yin and the Tai Yang.
Series Three focuses on Muscles and Fascia, Connecting all parts of the body, Finding the Centre, Using Spiral movements to help all parts of the body to collaborate. All these functions are related and are developed in children through archetypal movements following the meridians of the Jue Yin and Shao Yang
Each series uses developmental movements to remind the body of how it learned these holistic functions as infants, experiential anatomy to learn to move and sense the different body systems and qigong movements to use these connections and relate them to life.
The course will also cover some of the issues found in teaching the first series so that participants can start to teach this to clients. Participants who also attend the SEED Postgraduate programme may be authorised to teach the first series in groups.
