Come and connect, let us share smiles in person. What do fluidity and closet organizers have in common? Gentle flowing movements that work on the outside (joints and muscles) as well as our insides (chi energy channels).

Enhance your coping skills as we revitalize our bodies, mind and spirit with the flowing movements of chikung (qigong and Tai chi), adding story and fun.

Boost the battery of your life with Jin Shin Jyutsu. Examine and build more coping skills as we spark and fill our inner smiles.

Plan a class, workshop or course at Sweet Hollows Haven, on Manitoulin Island. Contact Ingrid via email or by telephone (705-229-4916).

Let us practice, play and train together. Use each routine individually or as a sequenced daily workout. The videos below are via YouTube.

Our Stuff

  • Tai Chi Qigong Group

    Practice, play and train together as we use Tai Chi Chi-kung (qigong). Learn the 24-movement Tai Chi Chuan set (which has qigong components), or start with the first six movements along with our warm-up. Did you know that Tai Chi is a form of qigong (or chi-kung, which means life force energy work)? Like other forms of movement, regular practice enhances circulation, mobility and strength. Adding life force energy work (qigong) encourages deeper peace and connection to our inner purpose in harmony with our planet.

  • Stretch, Hold and Talk (How we work together)

    Stretch with Tai Chi Qigong (Chi-kung), hold and strengthen your battery of life with Jin Shin Jyutsu, talk about your goals with life force energy work. What should the next meeting be about? Choose one of my topics or create your own … balancing our spinal energy, strengthening our immune system energy, harmonizing the flow of our water energies … During a session we can focus on one topic, such as a chikung routine, or focus on a “project,” such as pain management.

    Past Handouts are available at Stretch Hold and Talk

  • Our Courses: Reiki (Usui/Tibetan system)

    Reiki is taught using three Levels. In the first Level, the participant is attuned (introduced to and provided with the Reiki frequencies). In Level 2, we add specific purpose-based movements and symbols, while in the Teacher/Master Level the symbols are further practiced, and the attunements taught and practiced. Reiki is both a system and a new way of living.

  • Parsing our HEF Course

    Empower your inner vision and kinesthetic skills by using ancient qigong practices, Reiki or axiatonal alignment. Use movement, visualization, meditation and other techniques to work on balancing, harmonizing and strengthening your human energy field (HEF) and thus your inner awareness.
