- Evolutionary Yoga – This practice is probably the most dynamic practice around and has a set sequence of postures that you will learn. The fundamentals of this system are using the breath and awareness when entering into asana’s. Evolutionary yoga also uses what are called gaze points which allow you to focus your mind to keep your concentration. This is very dynamic and fluid and builds a lot of heat in the body due to the breathing method.
- Mindfulness Meditation – Learning to stay present and be in each moment is really what this meditation style is all about but you get to learn the method of actually staying in the moment and observing thoughts. We tent to let our mind run away with thoughts and can think about them in a very unhealthy way. This style of meditation allows us to cultivate some happiness in our minds.
- Medical Qigong – This style of practice focuses on the five elements to bring about balance and positive change in our live. On one level the practice works on our meridians and on another level it really opens up the body and removes tension and the stresses that accumulate over a period of time.
