In Chi Nei Tsang level 2 – Ampuku we will Review and expand on the CNT 1 curriculum
Learn about the history and development of Chi Nei Tsang (Anmo) and Ampuku as a healing modality and its migration through Asia, from China to Japan.
Ampuku, sometimes referred to as Abdominal Acupressure is an ancient practice from Japan; descended from Anmo (CNT) that gave rise to the development of Shiatsu.
In this Retreat you will further your CNT 1 practice and dive deeply into the traditional uses of this ancient healing modality.
Our days will begin at 9am with Qigong outside in the pristine meadows of Eastover Estate. Back in the classroom we will move consciously through this new curriculum, learning how to access the knowledge of the body with our hearts and our hands.
We will end the day with Tao Yin; Taoist yoga, specifically designed to open the meridians through stretching and breath work promoting deep and restful sleep. (Bring your favorite yoga mat and meditation cushion for evening practice).

I had tried yoga a few times in the past ten years, but it just didn’t seem to be a good fit for me – UNTIL I MET CAROLYN. She is WONDERFUL. Here’s why: She begins each class with a brief meditation, inviting us to bring mind, body and spirit to our practice. She exudes a calm, peaceful energy throughout the class. She is a patient teacher who respects individual limitations, encouraging our growth with soft, positive language and gentle adjustments. She’s never intrusive. She demonstrates advanced postures easily and with great flexibility, leading us (and inspiring us) into our own variation of the poses, always reminding us to honor our bodies and any physical restrictions that we bring to class with us. Her classes are helpful, safe and FUN ! I recommend her to students of all ages (even those over 60 ! )
