About our Weekly Classes:
Dharma Talk and Meditation, Mondays 6-7:30pm ET
We kick off each week’s programming with Josh’s dharma talk: A 30-minute reflection on one or several aspects of the spiritual path. The talk will be followed by a 30-minute meditation session and approximately 30 minutes for questions and discussion. The idea is simple: Josh’s talk will set the tone for the week of practice together.
Yin Qi Gong, Tuesdays 9-10:30am ET
Our Yin Qi Gong class blends the passive postures of Yin Yoga with smooth flowing yang movements of Qi Gong. The Yin Yoga practice clears deep energetic stagnations in the joints, and the Qi Gong practice then circulates vital energy through the unobstructed channels. This practice is designed to restore and maintain the natural mobility of the joints, to open the body’s energetic pathways to enhance the flow of Qi (life force) and support emotional equilibrium. This class is suitable for all levels.
Yin Yoga, Wednesdays 12-1:30pm ET
Yin Yoga is a contemplative form of physical yoga which gently stimulates the dense connective tissues of the body, thereby encouraging an optimal flow of Qi (life force). When the Qi is balanced and harmonized, it becomes much easier to experience a unified state of body, energy, heart, and mind. This class is suitable for all levels.
Yang Qi Gong, Thursdays 9-10:30am ET
Our Yang Qi Gong practice is designed to build strength, stamina, mobility, and greater mind-body awareness as you move through a range of creatively and purposefully sequenced forms. This slow-paced class is taught with a functional approach to movement, while blending Qi Gong with dynamic postures and transitions to enhance the flow of Qi (life force) and support emotional equilibrium.
