Saturday 9 January 2021 saw CLUB CHI (together with The Healing Tree), launch our first VIRTUAL VITALITY DAY. It had developed as an idea towards the end of last year and we thought it would be a nice way for people to start the year, focus on their health and wellbeing - and all from the comfort of their home. Little did we know that we'd all be in a tier 5 lockdown at the time of the event, so it was a blessing the restrictions didn't stop us at all!
The day was structured so people could join for the whole day, or for specific sessions and everyone who registered was sent a programme listing for the day's events so they could plan their day.
Interactive sessions of movement meditation (Shibashi Qigong), hand reflexology for self-care, guided meditations, facial reflexology/facial yoga and Chi-Robix ... the day got off to a flying start and, before we knew it, we were wrapping up the day!
The feedback on the day was lovely and the reviews, messages and comments received afterwards has been heart-warming. We couldn't have wished for a better day for us to all come together and connect.
We're not only building a community of like-minded people, but we're enabling attendees to bring the focus on what's going on for them and working to release, relax and re-balance. We shouldn't be living a life full of stress, so looking for ways to manage our health and our response to stress is vital.
At this time, more than ever, our health and wellbeing is SO important. Stress affects our immune system - something we don't want to have compromised when there is so much going on in the world around us.
If you know you need to be looking after yourself, but are unsure about joining an online event, maybe some of these words from our attendees will help:
"I was so glad that I attended your Virtual Vitality Day on Saturday, which I found to be most beneficial ... I was able to join in with the Reflexology and Meditation session, both of which I thought were excellent. I thought you presented the Zoom meeting really professionally and I was most impressed."
"What an amazing day! The flow of the day was perfect and the variety of sessions offered was brilliant ... I am so glad to have met you both and look forward to extending my knowledge of what Club Chi has to offer."
"Thank you so much for a brilliant day of vitality. I managed to attend all of the sessions and don't feel tired at all. I feel calm and relaxed, yet energised. I will sleep well tonight!"
"Fantastic full day of sessions presented professionally and sympathetically by Lorraine and Ian online. The day was well planned and being able to dip in and out of sessions meant it could suit all needs. Keep up the good work. Your efforts during such a difficult time are very much appreciated. Well done Top of Form"
"Thank you. it was superb!"
"Absolutely brilliant day. Thank you x"
Our next VIRTUAL VITALITY DAY will be on Saturday 27 February 2021. Registration will open soon, so keep an eye out for more details.
And please, if you do one thing this year, make sure you look after your health.
