Event description
Coordinate your mind and body to feel more relaxed and more confident, to move better in sports, dance and martial arts, and for health.

About this Event

Learn how to coordinate your mind and body to feel more relaxed and more stable, to move better in sports, dance and martial arts, and to experience a greater sense of physical and mental confidence. MindBody coordination has been traditionally explored for thousands of years, and is now being studied by researchers as “Flow Experience” or “Being in the Zone.”

In this unique workshop, you will learn how to coordinate mind and body using principles as taught by early masters of aikido, a Japanese martial art developed in the 20th century. You will learn about Ki (also called Qi and Prana), and how it is applied to martial arts, healing and daily life.

Gerald Lopez studied aikido under the first British national instructor, Ken Williams, who always emphasised that mindbody coordination can improve all aspects of life.

The workshop is for:

  • People interested in exploring coordination and flow to improve their confidence, relaxation, health etc.
  • Integrative health professionals
  • Aikido practitioners of any experience
