This all-levels, 2hr Immersion Workshop is a synergy of Hatha & Taoist yoga designed to awaken the flow of Life Force through a gentle, mesmerizing, moving meditation. Taoist yoga can be defined as an expression of standing Yin yoga where the art of effortless power is discovered through calming, rhythmic flows combining breath with movement. The Magic of Dragons is inspired by the teachings of Paul & Suzee Grilley & Yin yoga Sensei Bernie Clark. This ‘Dragon Fuego Flow’ is an exploration of Qi through various Taoist and Hatha dragon-inspired flows & stretches. Supported by mellow and uplifting backbeats, this is the perfect opportunity to experience the sparkle of Qi and give your mind, body and soul some much-deserved ZEN.
