Harness your Inner Energy
There is an immense amount of energy available to us. Our relationship to our chi, or vital life force energy, can always be better understood, channeled, and put to good use. While you may not be throwing lightning bolts by the end of this course, we trust that you’ll see electrifying results in all different types of body and movement practices.
Foster Focus & Mental Acuity
The mind is a beautiful and complex thing. In this course we will learn how to cultivate the stillness of mind necessary to find peace, harmony, and flow. We will also explore the intersection of quantum physics and our psychology, focusing on how to put this knowledge to good use in our lives.
Have Fun with Flow
We’ll be using staffs, swords, and all manner of flow tools in this course, not the least of which is your own body. Be sure to bring your favorite flow tool and an enthusiastic spirit! We’re going to have some great fun together.
