Exploring Asian Health Exercises at the Southern Saratoga YMCA

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I am excited to attend  a special workshop being held at the Southern Saratoga YMCA on January 21st from 2:30 - 4:30 pm called Exploring Asian Health Exercises.  Taught by Sal Casano, Certified Tai Chi/Qigong Instructor and Veronica Casano, Reiki Master,  this workshop will offer the following sampling of Asian healing traditions:

Tai Chi Chi: A movement exercise focusing on balance and circulation of chi or internal energy.

Crane Animal Qigong: A beautiful set of graceful movements based on the movements of the crane. These movements connect the mind, body and breath.

Sitting/Standing Meditation: Smile and follow your breath as you experience visualizations designed to promote a peaceful and relaxing mind-body connection.

Exercises/Massage Techniques for the Hands: Exercises to increase circulation (important during the winter months). Massage to soothe and relax the tendons, muscles and joints in the hands.

This is a fundraiser for the YMCA's Reach Out to Youth Scholarship program which allows children and families across the Capital District, who otherwise would not be able to afford YMCA programs and services, to participate fully.  The cost is $30.

For more information, please contact Lori Donato at (518) 371-2139 x5532 or by email at LDonato@cdymca.org.

Ride in the Year of the Dragon with a Qigong Group Energy Practice

Attend our open house in Clifton Park, New York or join the practice remotely

Abundant life force or Qi is one of the most essential qualities to anyone's health and well-being. Use the power of the Dragon to start your year in a positive way by building your energy foundation with our Year of the Dragon group energy practice.

On Monday, January 23, 2012, at 7:30 p.m., Eastern Time, join us for this energy-enhancing nationwide group Qigong practice. The Dragon Stands between Heaven and Earth is just one of ten Qigong postures from our innovative Dragon's Way program. On this special evening, people from all around the country will stand in this posture and unite their energies at the very same moment to create a powerful energy field. The posture helps you connect to the Universal energy source, and the collective intentions of all the participants magnify the energy available -- energy you can use for your own healing.
You can join the lunar New Year celebration in one of two ways:

1.  Andrea Smith will be hosting a Year of the Dragon Open House at A Peaceful Place Massage and Wellness Center on Monday, January 23rd at 7 pm where she'll hold the group Dragon practice in the Capital region and teach a short introductory workshop on the healing power of Qi.

2. If you aren't able to attend the open house and group practice, you can still tap into this unique energy frequency by practicing remotely at home or with friends. 

Have a Happy and Healthy Year of the Dragon!

On January 23rd, the lunar new year, the Year of the Dragon enters. In China, the Dragon is considered a powerful being with miraculous healing powers. Use the Dragon's energy this year to support your healing goals.
