Every morning will start with LifeStream body practices lead by Michael Yoshpa. We will start our days off by gently warming up our bodies with simple physical exercises, concentration and awareness practices, delving into spontaneous movement, breathing, guided meditation, Hatha yoga and more. These morning exercises will make us feel refreshed and renewed as they give us concentration and centering for the creative work ahead.
Each evening, Michael will lead us in Qigong. These lessons will help us restore our energies after a full day's work, and they will provide us with a smooth transition into bed. Qigong is traditionally used to maintain emotional balance and mood, while replenishing the vital energy that helps prevent illness and disease. In martial arts, Qigong is considered an important component to a warrior's training, in Buddhism – a meditative practice, and in Confucianism it is a practice for the advancement of moral qualities. At LaMuse, Qigong will help us renew and redirect the energy we use over the course of our laboratory.
The physical activities at LaMuse do not pose any threat to its participants' health, but if you have any health condition, which you think might interfere, we recommend consulting your doctor first.
