Born in Moscow, Russia, Yuri started practicing Qi Gong at age 15, learning from various Chinese teachers and mindfulness meditation from Buddhist monks. Since 1991, he has been a certified instructor of this ancient healing art. From 2011 – 2014, he led the Qi Gong Program at the Wellspring Cancer Support Center in Toronto.
Now living in Scottsdale, Yuri is eager to spread the benefits of Qi Gong, assisting individuals and groups.
Yuri Grevtsev instructs the following:
Tai Chi & Qigong
These two ancient modalities involve slow, mindful movement as a form of meditation and healing. All levels welcome.
Detailed Class Description:
Gentle warm-up: addressing flexibility, balance, coordination and range of motion.
Static Five Methods of Qigong: which focuses on fostering participants’ awareness of Qi (internal energy) through slow, continuous breathing and meditation.
Dynamic Qigong is designed to further discover and empower the body’s natural defense mechanisms. Students learn to differentiate between yin and yang, full and empty, weight and no weight dynamics.
The “Tai Chi Meditative Step” clarifies the diversity of yin and yang by coordinating footwork and activity with a chi ball.
The well structured, yet simple to acquire, “Tai Chi Kitchen Form” is next in this progression.
This program concludes with “8 pieces of silk brocade Qi Gong”, which is a balanced, invigorating mixture of yin and yang movements.
