Combining with Nature, we will meet at the beautiful Natural Park Fontes de Estômbar and start practice Qigong and create a connection with the Mother Earth. Don´t hesitate to try out Qigong for yourself. It is gentle and very accessible for beginners. At the same time it is profound right from the start, and brings us to the awareness of our breathing and movements. During this Qigong Session, we will work with Ba duan Jin / Eight Pieces of Brocade, 18 movements of shibashi, Xing Yin Nei Gong, Introduction to Qigong Tree Pose (Zhan Zhuang) - Qigong Standing Meditation and body massage (Do In). It’s a simple practice with extraordinary mental and physical benefits, and offers a fast and effective means to recharge your energy, reduce stress and anxiety, gain mental clarity, and stay focused by cultivating our vital energy. Allow your body and mind to relax and release anything that no longer serves you, and create focus through conscious movement and stillness. We will enjoy and create connection with our true selves. Feeling mother earth supporting and holding you from beneath, and above from the crown of our heads towards the sky, creating this connection between cosmos and earth, breathing deeply and surrendering into gravity, nourishing all of our layers, DNA and its cells.
Hello, I’m Filipe Silva. I was born in Portimão and i'm living in Lagoa from younger age. I'm holistic therapist, dedicated since 2008 to help people to relax and release their mental, emotional and body restraints using tools like Reiki, Biorgonomy/Hatmara, Thai Yoga Massage/Thai Body Work, Indian Head Massage, Full Body Oil Massage. I have been practicing Shotokan Karate since 2010, and I began to feel the need to work with stillness in a meditative way. So through this, I discovered the power of Qigong. I started practicing Qigong in 2016, doing the Zhan Zhuang Therapeutic Qigong course at the Macrobiotic Institute of Portugal with the master Lourenço de Azevedo. Site: www.artmassage.net
