Happy Winter Solstice Qi friends! It’s that time of year.
Today, December 21 we celebrate the Winter Solstice, with the shortest day and the longest night in the year. Winter solstice marks the beginning of our journey into the cold Yin of winter.
This is the time when the Yin energy is strongest. It is a time of rebirth, where the days after begin to slowly lighten as we move forward into the winter season.
For our friends in the southern half of the world, it is Summer Solstice, when Yang energy is strongest. In my native country Peru it is Summer.
Wherever you are in the world, it is good to remind yourself to go with the flow of these energies.
During this time of the year, the plants and animals turn inward and rest.
Mother Nature hints to us to do the same. Even though winter isn’t as inviting when it comes to doing activities outdoors, it’s still important to not become stagnant.
Qigong is a great option for “winter fitness.”
To my Sadana Center students make sure you keep practicing a Qigong routine to maintain your body, mind, and spirit healthy, and in balance. The Golden Tortoise and the Eighteen Palms of the Buddha are perfect for this time of the year. Those Qigong exercises stimulate bones and tendons and help us to release negative emotions.
And make sure you stay warm, that's important for your health and wellbeing.
This is a time of new beginnings for all of us. Releasing the old and embracing the new.
If you are eager to start the new year on the right foot, we are opening new Tai Chi & Qigong groups in our newly renovated Qi studio! We have an $85 December Special.
Register today and start classes in January 2022. Hurry up! because the special is only until 12/30/21. Limited space.
Call Simo Ana at (727) 458-9123 for more information. Registration for our classes is by phone only.
Tai Chi & Qigong will help you kickstart your new year's commitment to take your health more into your own hands.
The best reason to cultivate Qigong is that it makes you feel better and helps you stay healthy!
This is a time for optimism and looking forward. Last Saturday was our last Sound Bath Meditation.
Meditation is a great opportunity to hold space for ourselves, to stay balanced, and be recharged with great energy! In that meditation, we looked within ourselves and did a special ritual of Gratitude. Thank you so much to those that participated.
Sadana Center is going to take a break for the holidays, and we'll be back on January 3rd, 2022. It's time for the Tiger to go back to his cave!.
On January 15, 2022, we'll have our first Sound Bath Meditation of the year, and we'll welcome the new year with clarity, energy, and abundance. Now you can book 2 meditations in advance. January and February are available for booking. Click the link below to book the meditation.
There’s nothing in life that is more important than love, and the Winter Solstice offers us a great opportunity to reconnect with that truth.
Take this time to reconnect with for family and mend difficulties. Let's change those negative stories into something positive to live a better life now and in the future.
We hope you have a healthy, happy, and wonderful Holiday, and we look forward to working with you in the new year of 2022!
Season Greetings from our Sadana Center Students to all of you!
To our students, customers, and to all reading this post, we hope you have a wonderful joy-filled Holiday Season with your family and friends!
Love & Qi!
