This is a class for people who want to increase their flexibility and mobility in order to be more embodied. Many people find that after years of stretching and doing yoga, they still have tension and stiffness in their bodies.
Chronic tension and stiffness are simply places in our body where the energy is blocked and can’t flow, or places where it has been trapped and often both. The stiffness that we feel is the result of blockages in the fascia. The connective tissue that covers our muscle. When we are sedentary or have bad posture, the fascia takes on the shape we give it, and fascia has the same tensile strength as steel.
Dance of the Dragon Myofascial Qigong releases chronic tension and stiffness through soft, flowing movement. It focuses on exercises that unwind the fascia and create fluidity of movement. The body becomes more connected, improving balance and coordination. We move with less effort and the practice tends to increase our life-force energy.
This class creates a deeper understanding of how to more effectively increase flexibility and range of motion, allowing the tissues to open so that the energy can flow more freely, making your entire practice more free, embodied, and sensual. You come to understand how to stretch more effectively and use gentle movement to unwind the fascia and release the joints.
About David Lee
I have more energy, vitality, and greater mobility at age 70 than I had when I was 40. Although I have been practicing yoga, qigong, and martial arts for more than 30 years, up until the last 5 years or so I was not able to overcome the chronic tension and stiffness in my body, as much as I tried. I just believed that some people are more flexible than others and that that was genetic. Through studying the principles of the myofascial system, I have developed techniques to overcome tension and stiffness, that made me feel like a prisoner in my own body for most of my life.
I have been teaching at The Yoga Barn in Ubud, Bali and have recently been teaching and doing workshops in Los Angeles, and here in KL at Our Body Space. I am in KL for the entire month of June.
