Hey friends. I’m sure you’ve noticed, but we’re in for some *changes* these days. If you're like us you've been getting emails from every corporation you've ever given your email to about how they are handling this. A lot of what we take for granted is being challenged and I’m sure we’re in for some interesting times. Routines are off, and a lot of what we do for self-care in group community settings is being cancelled - and for good reason.
My hope is that we address the shortage in sick leave policies, more rugged safety net systems and make a shift from fierce individualism to a more tampered community-mindset.
If you are looking for support, we’ll be uploading some new Qigong videos, and also check out the existing ones on tapping and breath-work. Many TCM practitioners are offering herbal consultations online with the option of delivery to your home. Apps like Headspace and Insight Timer (& Insight Timer en español!!) have some wonderful, free, guided meditations for sleep and anxiety. Black Swan Yoga just started offering donation based online streaming classes and our favorite Yoga with Adriene has always been free and web-based. AOMA is featuring community classes offered online.
I'm sad to announce that in an effort to keep our greater community healthy, we will be postponing Thursday morning community qigong classes at AOMA's campus for the rest of the term, along with community yoga. AOMA's administration is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and will announce when qigong classes will be back! Please contact them directly with any questions about community classes.
I'm working on getting videos set up soon, and hope to still offer free web-based classes through April on the good ol' internet.
Until then, stay healthy, take good care of yourselves, and check out some of the links below:
