Join acupuncturist and Katonah Yoga Teacher, Ari Halbert, for an introduction to the Taoist practice of Qi Gong and acupressure massage based on the meridian system of Chinese Medicine.
Qi Gong exercises cultivate and distribute Energy/Qi throughout the body and are a powerful tool that have been used for thousands of years to promote health and longevity. The immediate effects are an invigorating burst of physical energy and extreme mental clarity, while the long term effects gradually boost the immune system and increase stamina and will power. Participants will be taught a specific set of exercises, first learning each one step-by-step, then practicing them linked together in succession, using the group energy to create palpable swell of energy.

FINDING JOY THROUGH KATONAH YOGA
WITH CARLOS LU AT LOVE YOGA EAST
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY 9/15-9/16, 12:30pm-3:30pm
Using tools of Katonah Yoga®, learn to soothe yourself, become revolutionary, empowered and embodied. The body is designed to fit. “The practice teaches how to mediate polarities (such as hot and cold) by the archetype of a triangle: Strength, Structure, Stability. Applied to the body: Stable in the Base, Capable in the Middle and having a higher Vision. Yoga is the dialogue between body, mind and breath. My physiology is my neurology. My state of mind shows up in my body mediated by my breath. As my breath, so my mind. With breath work, I vibrate higher to the frequency of joy. By folding, unfolding, twisting and stretching my body, I use the Magic Square as an image bank to weave my personal narrative, my Golden Thread.” Whether you are new to yoga or an advanced yogi, Katonah Yoga® teaches tools to practice and inform your body, recognize and restructure your patterns, become more stable, able and capable to enhance your wellbeing.
