INTERMITTENT FASTING

Let’s start by making one thing clear:

Real intermittent fasting isn’t about calorie restriction — or feeling restricted at all.  If you’re over 40, there are some dos and don’ts in relation to intermittent fasting.

When you take a flexible, intuitive approach, it is one of the best things you can do for your health.

Fasting for long periods can make menopause symptoms worse.  However, following a gradual and gentle fasting schedule, in line with Chinese Medicine, can reduce your menopause symptoms so that you feel fresh, bright and full of energy.

CHI FLOW CAN  HELP YOU

Chi Flow with Jo creates a strong community of women where you connect with others, your own inner spirit and life force energy every day. Whether a beginner or a practitioner wanting to go deeper, you can develop an understanding and connection with life force energy. 

Chi Flow helps you connect and understand your body, increasing and moving energy to improve circulation, sleep, mobility, inflammation, digestion, mood and much more.

January-February : Intermittent Fasting 

The Qi Gong, Food Medicine and Acupressure for January & February 2024 in Chi Flow with Jo will focus on Intermittent Fasting, to boost metabolism, improve digestion over a 6 week period, supported by the Chi Flow community.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has a gentle, easy way of fasting so that you can clear you liver and boost metabolism.
☯️ Join the hundreds of Chi Flow members for this annual 6 week programme, to kick start your metabolism for the new year!

☯️ Let’s start by making one thing clear: Real intermittent fasting isn’t about calorie restriction — or feeling restricted at all.

When you take a flexible, intuitive approach, it is one of the best things you can do for your health.  But as you age there are some definite do’s and don’ts

Intermittent fasting is so much more than a weight-loss tool — it’s a scientifically validated method to reduce inflammation, improve metabolism, and increase energy.

When practiced in line with Chinese Medicine it’s a great tool for helping for women who are peri – mid or post menopausal to reduce symptoms of liver stagnation such as slow metabolism, hot flashes, thinning hair, joint pain, low energy, skinny arms and legs whilst the middle gets round.  It doesn’t have to be this way.

Learn to love your food and your life again.

We do this with a daily online Qi Gong class, plus diet advice and acupressure that can help you stay physically fit and flexible, boosting metabolism, balancing hormones, increasing energy and bone density.

Mentally it improves cognition and clear thinking whilst emotionally, calming the mind, reducing anxiety and isolation.

What is the Energy of the Month?

Each month we take a specific topic and deep dive into the Qi gong, recipes and acupoints to benefit that topic, such as healthy heart, bone building, boosting metabolism and balancing hormones.  

We repeat and build up the moves over the month creating a new and unique sequence that flows.  

In the first class of each month we begin the new moves.

What if Chi Flow isn't for me?

That’s ok, we won’t take it personally!

In the event that you wish to cancel, it’s a simple process.

Monthly
Live Satsangs

Satsang is a word which comes from Sanskrit, meaning ‘to be in the company of true people’. In this space, we will practice meditations and mantras together for half an hour and then listen to short teaching from a variety of speakers including Abraham Hicks, Mooji and Byron Katie.

Chi Flow can help you

Chi gong is often translated as “energy cultivation”. The Makko Ho exercises are useful to tonify each pair of 6 pairs of meridians. Doing them regularly helps to improve vital functions and prevent disease.

Firstly Feel your Chi using breath and being in the present, then move your Chi using acupressure points, flowing movements and body stretches. Finally, Refine your Chi using visualization and focus. Maintain your Chi with this daily practice.

If you miss a session, don’t worry, they are recorded and you can watch them any time, anywhere and on any device.

IS INTERMITTENT FASTING RIGHT FOR YOU?

Some people should steer clear of trying intermittent fasting:

There are some people that this fasting practice does not suit so I would ask that if you are diabetic/adolescent/pregnant/have chronic illness/kidney issues/recently recovered from illness or surgery/hospital it is best that you do not intermittently fast.  

Also, if you have a food disorder or have had one in the past it is best that you chat with me before taking part.  If anyone is unsure about joining in, please email me directly at joanne@joannefaulkner.ie

What some
Chi Flow with Jo
members have to say…

Gentle & powerful.  Joanne has a great energy & a world of knowledge. Feeling the benefits physically & mentally already. Highly recommended. Eithne

“When I started the month my resting heart rate was 70bpm. My blood pressure at times was up to 196 ( scary). After the month of fasting, chi flow and exercise my resting heart rate is 56 which puts me in the athlete bracket I’m sure with all the liver work my blood pressure will have stabilised as well.” Deidre

“I love your classes – your energy and enthusiasm is infectious and I love the way you share information about meridians and acupressure points during the class – you clearly have enormous levels of knowledge and you share it generously and lightly. I come away from every class, feeling the benefit of it, and ready to face the day.” Jean

So simple, but so effective!! – Lisa
