NEWS

All classes are currently running. The new beginner's cycle is underway, as of October 2017.

Gillianne Shaver's Wednesday afternoon classes will be on hiatus until the first week of November.

Workshops Sunday, August 7 and Sunday, September 11th, 2016

As most of my regular students know, I will be taking a hiatus from regular weekly classes at the Regent Centre throughout August and September.

BUT! You won't be left completely in the lurch. First off, if you're not familiar with Gillianne Shaver's Wednesday afternoon Tai Chi classes (1-2:15pm), these will continue to run throughout August. I will also continue running Qigong sessions in Dundurn Park (weather permitting) throughout August from 6-7pm. 

AND! I have two workshops, one in August and one in September, to help you deepen your practice and brush up on your technique while you're out there practicing on your own. 


TAI CHI WORKSHOP
Sunday, August 7, 2016
1-5pm
Regent Health Centre Studio
Fee: $75
Prerequisite: Participants must have some familiarity with the Tai Chi set.

Working with Tai Chi fundamentals, we'll practice bringing body and mind together to help you feel more whole, grounded, peaceful, and energized. We will use the tool of guided meditation to connect participants with the ambient energies (chi) that are always available for you to draw upon through your Tai Chi practice. The workshop will include sitting and standing Qigong meditation. 

This day is going to leave you feeling stretched out and renewed. I think it will be positively magical!


QIGONG WORKSHOP
Sunday, September 11, 2016
1-5pm
Regent Health Centre Studio
Fee: $60 for those who are not regular Tai Chi or Qigong Regent Centre students
$40 for regular Regent Centre students
Open to all

This Qigong workshop will focus on working with the gentle, whole-body movements of Qigong exercises to relax and invigorate the body and focus the mind. We will return once again to shamanic trance journey to help us connect with spiritual and energetic forces that guide all processes of healing and our life's direction. The workshop will include sitting and standing meditation.

The intention behind this workshop is to help set up participants for the year of practice on which we're about to embark, and to serve as a touchstone to help you receive future teachings. I expect it will be deeply soothing and fun. 


To register for either or both workshops, please contact Melissa at (905) 521-0043 or at smithmk2@gmail.com. 

Qigong Session in Dundurn Park Cancelled for Wednesday, July 13, 2016

Looks like we're going to have another very hot day tomorrow, making it unwise to exercise outside. I hope everyone is able to stay cool. Let's keep our fingers crossed for more reasonable temperatures next week!

No Dundurn Park Session This Wednesday, July 6, 2016

Because of the high temperatures and humidity, I'm cancelling this week's park session. I hope everyone manages to stay cool!
