Qigong and Stillness Meditation at BCC
This class includes a mix of two soothing, relaxing practices to support your body, mind and spirit.
Qigong is a mind-body practice which originated in China and combines movement, breath and meditation to promote health, vitality and wellbeing. It is a low impact form of exercise with slow, smooth movements and breathing that can be done standing or seated.
Stillness Meditation, developed by Dr Ainslie Meares, is a natural, effortless experience that we do sitting comfortably on chairs, that brings deep mental rest and inner calm through simply letting go.
What to expect:
Beginning with approximately 45 minutes of Qigong (both traditional and modern), which involves slow, gentle stretches and easy to follow movements, coordinated with the breath. These calming forms help to replenish energy, maintain strength and flexibility and also encourage the release of stress and tension.
The meditative style Qigong movements will then help to ease us into the last 15 minutes where we will be seated on chairs for some tranquil Stillness Meditation.

This class is beneficial for anyone who would like to support their wellbeing with an hour of physical, mental and emotional relaxation.
