About the Class

Gentle Movement and Mindfulness

Morning workshops with Karen are designed to gently awaking the body, moving and stretching into your day with awareness. The movements we will practice together are inspired by slow stretches from Kung Fu and Chi Gong, Yoga Nidra-body scan, Buddhist meditation and mindfulness.

What you can expect from the sessions:

  • Hand mudra
  • Self Traditional Thai Massage on zen lines
  • Tennis ball foot massage exercise
  • Chi Gong massaging the internal organs
  • Chi Gong healing sound
  • Aura Spritz
  • Buddhist Walking meditation
  • Tai Chi standing meditation
  • Yoga Nidra – body scan
  • Pendulum diagnosis
  • An overall sense of release and calm can be experienced preparing for the day.

...and I said to my body, softly. ‘I want to be your friend.’ It took a long breath and replied, ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this’ Nayyirah Waheed
