QiGong Immersion

With Hang Nhan from Saigon Om

Qi Gong is a 4000 year-old ancient Chinese discipline that has its roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is an elegant, meditative movement practice that involves the mind, breath, and movement to create a calm, natural balance of energy. Qi Gong can be done either standing up or sitting on a chair. It is suitable for all levels and ages, and a beautiful compliment to yoga.

Makai is hosting a beautiful 2 day Qi Gong Immersion with Hang from Saigon Om. By the end of the immersion, you will learn a handful of Qi Gong tools and sequences to help release and activate your Qi for a deeper spiritual practice.

Sun Nov 21 & 28, 9am – 4.30pm

Wellness Retreat

With Hang Nhan from Saigon Om

Wellness is not about reading books about wellness or doing rituals. Wellness is a practice.

Join Hang and other like-minded friends at the blissful sanctuary yoga studio Makai Yoga Collective for a monthly event of self-care as we slow down from busy work schedules and hectic home lives. Hang will guide you through a combination of mindfulness practices such as simple Qi Gong movements to regulate your energy as well as sitting, walking or tea drinking meditation, followed by a restorative yoga practice to rebalance, rejuvenate and recharge for the month ahead. No experience required. Just your friendly smile.

** Book ahead for Friday December 17  & Friday January 21

Fascia Release Workshop

With Hang from Saigon Om

Feeling extra tight from the extra COVID-19 sitting? Do you have tight muscles and can’t seem to release them? You just “rolled” and released the focused area and it’s tight again?

Come join Hang for this 2-hour workshop to learn how fascia can restrict our movement and at times mental capacity. Think: headaches relating to neck, shoulder and face tension.

Take home gentle techniques to release fascia every day to create strength, flexibility, freedom and space. Hang will also link the release points to acupressure and emotional imbalances, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

Saturday Dec 4, 11am-1pm

Cost $50

One-day Wellness Retreat

With Hang from Saigon Om

One-Day Retreat: Finding Balance From Within 

Sometimes the outside world can take us out of balance creating fear, doubt and confusion. This is part of the play of life. It is also part of the play to discover and to nourish a supportive mindfulness practice that reconnects us to our true solid selves to regain balance & equanimity.

At the retreat, you will be guided through a series of saigon om’s medley of practices to develop greater insight and understanding to regulate the balance of life. The best thing about this retreat is you are welcome to own and take home any of the practices that you resonate with.

Practices include Qi Gong to release and activate fresh energy, and other mindfulness practices such as group sharing, guided meditation, gentle yoga, and yin and restorative yoga. All levels are welcome. No experience required.

Sunday Dec 5, 9.30am – 3pm

108 Sun Salutations

With Hang Nhan from Saigon Om

Begin anew 2022 with Hang as she gently guides you through 108 sun salutations. 

No, your eyes have not deceived you. It is indeed 108. Come experience the power of your mind with the healing collective energy of the community to move and breathe as one. Doesn’t this sound like a wonderful (or crazy?) way to start the year by connecting to your inner power and grounding with fresh new energy. Hang will also guide you through a delicious and generous cooling sequence before taking rest/savasana after your practice.

No experience in sun salutations or yoga is required. But the benefits of such a practice are too numerous to mention. Modifications will be offered as well as explanation of why the chosen auspicious number 108.

Bring a friend, a yoga mat, water bottle and hand towel and let’s do this.

Sunday January 9, 10-12.30pm

Cost $50
