Shibashi Tai Chi with Rosalind - 9:30am
Join Rosalind for a special Shibashi Tai Chi workshop.
Shibashi, is a set of individual Qigong exercises that are practiced in a fluid continuous manner. Shibashi combines elements from Yang style Tai Chi and breathing and movement exercises from Quigong. It is a gentle, beautiful and flowing Qigong exercise that is very relaxing. Shibashi is suitable for all ages and has been shown to increase energetic vitality, rejuvenate the mind, body and soul, and gain more agility and flexibility.
Shibashi introduces the basic elements of weight shifting, coordination of leg and arm movements, along with controlled breathing. Unlike many exercises which stretch and stimulate the large muscle groups , Shibashi focuses on the smaller muscles tendons and ligaments in order to promote the strong elastic forces of Tai Chi. The gentle stretching and releasing, combined with deep relaxing breathing encourages tension deep in the body tissues to soften and release.
