Presence Through Movement Qi Flow Yoga DVD 9110028   $ 34.00
Product Image Eckhart Tolle teaches that the present moment can't be experienced through the thinking mind. So what's one of the best ways to "turn it off" and experience presence? Put your body in motion. Now Kim Eng, Eckhart Tolle's teaching partner, shares some of the intuitive movements that have spontaneously arisen during her process of spiritual awakening. Inspired by t'ai chi, Yin yoga, and qi gong, these practices open the doorway to what Eckhart Tolle calls "the joy of being." Filmed in a natural setting in southern California, this instructional DVD features an introduction by Eckhart Tolle about the value of moving meditation as well as Kim Eng's gentle step-by-step guidance for: * The Dragon Awakens, an invigorating yet gentle movement based on tai chi to wake up your energy * A shaking exercise from the qi gong tradition that helps connect you to the "inner body" * The Bamboo Tree, a standing exercise that sends energy into the earth to help you feel grounded Eckhart Tolle believes that spiritual awakening requires full embodiment. With "Presence Through Movement", you have a practical program to awaken your whole being to the transformational power of the present moment.

Tai Chi 4 Kids 9070045   $ 42.00
Product Image Why Tai Chi for Children? Tai Chi has an almost magical effect in health improvement. Kids love to learn and they learn very fast especially when engaged in a fun activity. This specially designed tai chi program emphasizes the fun element while developing their mind and body. It is designed in several small building blocks to capture their attention, incorporating imagery and games to add appeal to kids. We have found that kids really enjoy learning it. Teachers and parents have also found improvement in their children's sport and academic studies after doing tai chi. Team sports like football are wonderful for children but not all children like them. Many children stop team sport after leaving school. Individual sport likes tai chi is more likely to continue for a life time. Starting tai chi could lead your child on a lifelong path to a healthier and more fulfilling lifestyle. To quote Professor Shona Bass, Professor of Population Health, Deakin University, Australia: "The other aspect of Tai Chi is the intrinsic reward they get from seeing themselves progress and develop, and it is with themselves rather than in competition with other children."
