Eight Archetypical Postures
Uhrzeit: 17:30 - 19:00
Initially the grounded, balanced and relaxed qualities of standing chi kung postures won't match with our physical and mental reality. There will be friction between the acted training posture and our posture of habit. Gradually a dialogue between the pretended, outer posture and the inner reality will develop. The prolonged and relaxed postural practice will cause shifts on the levels of coordination, circulatory processes, behaviour and self image.
