Workshop attendees will learn techniques for attracting and cultivating qi, which practitioners define as vital life energy that can improve mental clarity, stress management, energy, and spiritual development. These techniques include qigong, an ancient Chinese practice that uses movement to stimulate energy, as well as breathing exercises that help with focus and concentration. The workshop will be led by a cast of teachers, nutritionists, and meditative music performers who all have unique approaches to the practice of qigong and harnessing energy. Attendees will have the opportunity to take advantage of discounted rates at the hotel. For the option with qigong classes, the sessions will take place at Enlightened Hands.
Enlightened Hands Wellness & Massage
Though he founded Enlightened Hands Wellness & Massage, it would be inaccurate to describe Michael J. Bouvier simply as a massage therapist. He's an accomplished wellness arts practitioner who has done everything from study under master herbalist Ron Teeguarden to taking hands-on anatomy courses to becoming a certified qigong instructor. In regards to massage, Michael has mastered many techniques, including, though not limited to, myofascial release and reflexology. True to his holistic approach to care, his service menu covers a broad range of treatments. Massages might incorporate Swedish, deep-tissue, or trigger-point modalities, while qigong sessions and stability ball classes teach posture exercises, stretches, and breathing techniques to relieve stress and recharge the body's AA batteries.
