We started with a Devotional (Galatians 6:8) – the main idea being that he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.

 

After the Devotional, the Pax warmed up with the 8 Pieces of Brocade (Ba Dua Jin) Qi Gong forms and strengthened our energy flow.  YHC overdid it and needed a “10 count” after a couple of Gi Gong forms. 😊

 

After the warm-up we went into the sun salutation yoga flow and ended with the always popular Pigeon pose.  Next time we try for King Pigeon.

 

Great work by all Pax.  It was an honor to lead.
