RECEIVE & RESTORE (online, open classes)

Having given energy out into the world, what would it feel like to take time for yourself: to receive and restore your energy? Combining Qigong and restorative yoga, Receive & Restore classes provide the space and conditions for such restoration, reorienting the practitioner back towards a natural state of inner calm, harmony, health, and vitality. 

Each class begins with the body in physical stillness, while energy is guided internally with breath, visualization and intention. The body is then invited into gentle movement (if willing) that can be practiced on the ground or seated in a chair. The option to come up to stand is available for those who wish to do so. The last 20 minutes of each class is dedicated to restorative savasana (resting in stillness), to offer the body time to store the cultivated energy.

Classes are suitable to all abilities, all levels of experience, and all body/mind types. They are created to particularly support those experiencing exhaustion, living with chronic illness, or recovering from illness or depletion. However, in today’s fast-paced world, I feel most will benefit from taking time to slow down and restore energy.

DAOIST FLOW (online, open classes)

The central tenet of Daoist Flow is that everything is part of the whole and subject to ever-changing rhythms and cycles. Acknowledging this fluid interdependence of all things, the practices of Daoist Flow invite us into our present-moment experience: to sense into, hold space for, and respond kindly and skillfully to what is present. With its heart in somatics, Daoist Flow weaves together elements of qigong, mindfulness, slow flow and restorative yoga. The practices tend to be of slower nature, giving plenty of time for developing somatic awareness. Paced to embrace both movement and stillness, engaging body, mind, and heart, Daoist Flow points the way towards creating harmonious alignment between our inner and outer worlds.

Classes are suitable to all abilities, all levels of experience, and all body/mind types. You are welcome to practice standing, seated, or lying down with the body in stillness while visualizing the movement.

Thursday May 2nd, 2024 15:00-16:00 UTC: Homecoming

Homecoming is an invitation to slow down and listen. Listen, with all your inner senses, to your experience of this present moment. Hold space for what you find. Respond with skill, kindness, and compassion. Such is the way of nature, and you and nature are one.

LIVE CLASSES on InsightTimer

In addition to a growing library of audio meditations I release on the InsightTimer platform, I offer period live practices, drawing from a number of different modalities. Unlike the Zoom classes I host independently, InsightTimer allows only for one-way audio/video. This means you can see and hear me, but I (or anyone else) cannot see or hear you. There is a chat interface, which allows you to communicate with me and other participants (if you wish). Live practices on InsightTimer are supported entirely by the generosity of the community. As teachers, we do not receive funds to host the events. We therefore invite you to make a donation to support your teacher whenever you attend. To attend one of my InsightTimer live events, click on the link to a particular event below. No pre-registration is required.
