The Qi-Yo signature class which draws upon Balinese, Chinese and Indian yoga traditions is a “contemporized” blend of traditional Indian Yoga, Qi Gong, body mind centering and ancient Balinese healing tools geared towards developing the holistically aware individual.
The class opens with a brief alignment-visualization exercise intended to bring the focus inwards into the subtle sheaths of the body. A soothing “pranayama” (breath-extension) exercise follows, enabling students to purify nerve channels, open meridians and shift focus from the physical to the energetic body.
The practice unfolds into a flow based sequence of postures teaches students to integrate rhythmic breathing with conscious movement, linking postures, moving with complete awareness as they increase strength and flexibility.
The asana routine enhances glandular stimulation, promotes flexibility and reduces stress. A combined chanting and meditation closes the session allowing each practitioner to unleash the body’s wisdom, awakening subtle awareness, balance and inner peace.
