Part 2: Opening and Closing the Joints of Your Body Workshop
Increase the Resiliency of Your Joints and Soft Tissues

Details to be announced soon!

Taught by Elizabeth Meloney

The process of opening (expanding) and closing (condensing), is a natural phenomenon that occurs
in all living organisms throughout the macro and micro universe, including the universe of a human being.

Opening and Closing, also known as pulsing, engages the internal hydraulic system of the body and entails a gentle, rhythmic process of pulsing energy in the joints of the body (beginning stage); this pulsing positively stimulates and purifies the interstitial and synovial fluids within the soft tissues and joints.

Learning the process of Opening and Closing will help you to:

Release layers of gross and subtle tension
Increase the health and density of your joint fluid
Improve the function of your joints and connective tissues
Decrease pain
More fully enjoy being in your body

Opening and Closing will help you create improved resilience and health–restoring harmony and integrated wholeness. This gentle, yet powerful process is an integral part of the neigong (inner work) of Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong that has such a positive effect on the overall health of the body, mind, emotions and spirit.

During this workshop, you will learn the process of Opening and Closing and incorporate this rhythmic pulse into ‘Rolling the Tai Chi Ball’ qigong practice. This is an easily accessible exercise that allows the mind to rest and gently observe while being fully engaged in the movement.

This workshop is open to all fitness levels. Please know that all the exercises can be modified for sitting or standing.

Pre-registration highly recommended. Accepting 12 students only to ensure everyone receives personal attention. Your payment reserves your place.

Please dress in layers, comfortable pants and bring water.
