Life at the Lake

"It was June, and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside."

―Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy-Tacy and Tib

Summer on the lake; there is nothing quite as magical and serene. The smell of the earth coming alive, the sensation of being barefoot on freshly cut grass , the sound of the waves and a crackling fire. And like a warm embrace Summer envelops you in her glow. Her golden light dusted all around you.

Get ready for your summer with a bit of self-care and wellness. Join us for some amazing workshops in June. From yoga and meditation to live music and Qi Gong. We welcome everybody and all bodies to our warm community and therapy based studio.

Qi Gong with Gayleen Bell

A 4 week introduction to Qi Gong. Qigong (Chi Kung) is an ancient Chinese healing art involving controlled breathing, meditation and fluid movement exercises designed to improve physical and mental well-being and prevent disease.

Traditional Chinese medicine shares the central concepts of patterns of energy flow in the body. “Qi” or “Chi” travels through the body through channels called meridians. These 12 meridians correspond to 12 major organs in the body. Qigong techniques improve the balance and flow of energy to increase overall health and vitality.

Classes will include warmups for joints and organs, five elements qigong movements, five element mudras, eight brocades and finally the eighteen forms. Postures and movements are designed to strengthen, stretch, tone and improve the flow of energy in the body, stimulate and heal the organs and calm associated emotions.
