Mindfulness and Qi Gong Day Retreat - Stirling

  • Stirling County Cricket Club Royal Stuart Way Stirling, FK7 7WS (map)

Susie and Phil from Pause & Breathe are excited to bring this full day of Mindfulness and Qi Gong to Stirling CCC. The day is entitled "Preparing for Spring", as we start to move out of the winter months, away from the long, dark days and towards the brighter, crisper days of spring. We will use both mindfulness and Qi Gong practices to help re-energise our minds and bodies, coming out of a period of hibernation, and allowing ourselves to blossom again.

Qi Gong has a powerful effect on the whole of the body and mind. Every Qi Gong exercise has an effect on the whole energetic system, allowing energy (qi) to flow freely. Phil will share with us Shibashi Qi Gong, which can enhance health and wellbeing. In this day we will cover the first 6 of the 18 postures, focusing on breath, energy and movement. Mindfulness is the perfect partner to Qi Gong, as it endeavours to bring body and mind together, to be truly present in this moment. In our mindfulness practices during the day, Susie will share practices to enable us to embrace the changing seasons, and turn towards nature to help us better accept impermanence. 

The day is suitable both for beginners and experienced practitioners. It is possible to practice Qi Gong with mobility difficulties - each posture can be adapted, and it is feasible to practice whilst sitting on a chair. 

The cost of the day is £60, concessions (people in receipt of their pension and students) pay £48. Please don't let cost put you off,we can offer two subsidised places for this event - contact me on susie@pauseandbreathe.co.uk to discuss further. You can also book directly by emailing me, therefore avoiding paying the booking fee on eventbrite. 

With a smile, Susie & Phil
