Central Channel Exercise Workshop, Istanbul & Cyprus
The central channel that runs through the spine and the two guarding channels running on the sides of the spine play an important role both in health qigong and in many spiritual teachings.
The participants of this workshop will be introduced to a simple method that opens these channels and facilitates a healthy flow of energy in the body. This method will be shared for the first time in Cyprus and Turkey in March 2014 .
It is recommended to practise this simple exercise daily for the following 100 days to get more benefit. You can practise this set of movements as a standalone exercise or together with the Zhan Zhuang system.

Every year in spring and autumn we do our most intensive practise, the retreat, which includes 4 or 7 days of immersion and communion with nature, energy and ourselves.
A typical day starts at 07:30 with a meditative walk in the woods and continues with the practices of Qigong, Tai Chi and meditation. After the dinner we usually have sessions of The Work of Byron Katie.
The requirement for the retreat is being open to leave some of your daily habits (a more detailed description will be supplied while booking your place) in order to make more space for presence and joy.
