Cultivate peace of mind and tranquility by learning some basic techniques of meditative practices for aligning mind, body and soul with Joel Massicot.
The class starts off with a Chinese practice called Qigong, an internal system that helps a person become one with their life force energy. Many physical issues stem from mental and emotional stress that create imbalances within the energy centers of the body. Qigong practice helps us nurture self-healing by managing the stressful emotions that prey on the mind when our chi is not regulated or balanced. Through it, you can build a deeper awareness and efficiency of breath to support and help build stamina around the respiratory system.
We then end the class with mindful meditation to help the practice solidify a more grounded experience creating momentum and inspiration in a person’s daily routine. Class is open to all students. New students are welcome any time.
What you will work on:
– Pranayama Meditation
– Movement Exercises (Tai Chi)
– Controlled Breathing
– Body Alignment
– Qi (Chi) Awareness
Back by popular demand- the Practice Class returns to Monday nights at 9:30pm. Come apply the techniques and movements you’re learning in class on the dance floor! Each class begins with a footwork warm-up and spin/pivot drills prior to getting into partnerwork. During the partnered social dancing, different genres of music (taken from our classes) are played to get students exposed to and apply all of what we offer. The training content will fluctuate for each class depending upon what students need assistance in developing.
