Meditation class with Yuri Grevtsev

Meditation class entails laying down, sitting or cross-legged meditation posture. Participants are engaged in mindful breathing and visualization techniques. Class is designed to help participants relieve pressures of daily life (stress). We’ll explore the guided Qi Gong Meditation experience that breaks the cycle of the “rat race”, shreds our ego and brings our mind to the realm of non-dual somatic awareness of our true-self.

The Power of Qi Gong Meditation

Qigong is an internal meditation practice that concentrates on breathing. Breath functions like an anchor for the ever wondering mind. Thoughts and images are coming and going, what stays unchangeable is the rise and fall of the breath. The rise is inhalation and the fall is exhalation. During inhalation the abdomen rises, whereas on the exhalation the abdomen falls or sinks in. Our diaphragm acts like a balloon filling up with air and deflating. While breathing in, we absorb Qi - energy from the outside environment and when breathing out, we disperse the processed Qi. This, in a nutshell, is what Qigong about.
