Dr. Kaneko is back again teaching community classes in Santa Monica! It has been a few years since the Shiatsu Massage School of CA sadly closed but now he is partnering with the City of Santa Monica for the second time this year to teach one of 3 classes. In this class two Qigong styles will be taught: Baduanjin with 8 silk movements that stretch the extremities, spine, and meridians, and Tree Qigong stances, which are gentle but transformational with vigorous abdominal breathing.
Daoyin is a form of exercise to generate the qi energy and blood flow to vital organs. Daoyin stimulates the vital points and meridians in order to clean the stagnation of the various systems, vitalize the tissues and improve the circulation on a cellular level. Dr. Kaneko also incorporates a focus on building a strong faith in the body’s own healing process. For Daoyin, 15 movements that utilize the pressure points and abdominal breath will be taught.
Handouts will be supplied, and additional teaching material is available upon request. Yoga mat, or something to comfortably sit or lie on required. Students must pre-register for the series online or by phone.
