What is Qi gong?
Qi gong (pronounced: chee-gun), which combines meditative and physically active elements, is the basic exercise system within Chinese medicine. Qigong exercises are designed to help you preserve your Jing, strengthen and balance the flow of Qi energy, and enlighten your Shen.


 

February 24th
Qi gong for Stress and Anxiety
While stress and anxiety are natural responses to modern life, they should not be a “constant” in your life. In this session, Maria Patrick, Certified Health Coach & Qi Gong Instructor, will help you transform your stress and anxiety into inner peace and tranquility. You will learn how to re-balance the Earth element within you, become present with your Heart Center, and build a protective “shield” against negative energy.

In this class you will:

  • Relax the Heart Center so you can experience the joy of life (some anxiety is normal, but it shouldn’t prevent you from doing what you want);
  • Clear out tightness and tension in the chest (sometimes all it takes is a few simple stretches);
  • Learn breathing exercises to bring your heart into present moment (you can use these whenever you need to reduce anxiety fast);
  • Clear stagnant energy with gentle Qi Gong flows (when your energy flows, joy and happiness are the natural result);
  • Fertilize your inner energy system  to grow a rich “internal garden” of tranquility;
  • Fortify a protective energy shield around you and clear out other people’s negative energy (taking on other people’s energy is natural, but we are never taught how to clear out the energy we don’t want); and
  • Cleanse and clear anxiety out of your entire system.

 


 

March 3rd
Qi gong for More Energy
Energy is that secret substance we all seek. Described as the “elixir of life”, energy – or “Qi” – is the vital essence that creates health, harmony, and well-being. Qi Gong can stimulate your own natural resources, effortlessly and naturally, just like the sunrise inspires the birds to sing and flowers to open.

In this class, Maria Patrick, Certified Health Coach & Qi Gong Instructor, will guide you in the following:

  • A series of warm-ups to invigorate your body, stimulate key pressure points, and awaken your life force;
  • Gentle stretches– to open the areas in your body that chronically hold tension and stress. By releasing stress, you will free up healing energy; and
  • Flowing movements to stimulate your whole system – putting every cell of your body in sync with nature and the world around you.

 


 

March 10th
Qi gong for Better Sleep
Sleep is the energy of life! In this session, you will learn healthy sleep habits for improving your energy, health and longevity. Certified Health Coach & Qi Gong Instructor – Maria Patrick – will help you discover ways to improve your sleep, feel more rested & increase your vitality.

In this class you will discover:

  • Stress clearing exercises to use at the end of the day;
  • Relaxation techniques to help you get deep rest;
  • Flowing movements to cultivate your Yin energy;
  • Healing sounds to do before bed to promote deep sleep; and
  • Stretches that will clear lines of tension.

Club Mirbeau: The Best Way to Achieve Your New Year’s Resolution

The holiday season is finally over and the New Year has arrived. It goes without saying that the holiday season is a time for filling our tummies with treats and hibernating under the covers. Like most people, you likely have one, or ten, New Year’s Resolutions that will hopefully spring you out of the holiday slump. Unfortunately, it’s often difficult to approach these resolutions in a way that is effective AND enjoyable.

 

Luckily for all Capital Region dwellers, a Club Mirbeau membership at Spa Mirbeau will provide you with all the tools you need to make your resolutions stick.

 

 

Beauty & Fashion

Dry winter weather has a way of taking a toll on your skin and hair and the chilly temperatures give us good reason to stay bundled deep under layers of clothes, making it easy to leave fashion at the front door. Hoping to spice up your look this year, in cold and warm weather? From our organic, ethical skincare products, to our fabulous hand-picked clothing items, La Boutique has everything you need to keep you feeling good in every season from the inside, out. Some of our favorite brands include Zentsis, known for its organic lotions, soaps and shampoos, free from harmful chemicals and Lulu Lemon, a yoga/fitness clothing line that will definitely come in handy when you begin your fitness journey.

 

 

Personalized Fitness

If the crowds of people at gyms this time of year make you cringe, you are not alone. That’s why we assure our fitness studios maintain a calm, exclusive atmosphere. With a Club Mirbeau membership, you can enjoy spin and yoga classes, as well as access to our free weights and cardio equipment. We also offer our members the option of speaking with a nutrition specialist to make your daily choices easier.

 

 

 

Rest and Relaxation

Our spa offers world-class amenities for Club Mirbeau members to use at their convenience, ranging from eucalyptus-infused steam rooms and saunas, a resting area with a meditation pool, and an aqua terrace featuring an oversized hot plunge pool. You can also enjoy Le Bistro’s menu in your bath robe from the aqua terrace. Our extensive menu of spa treatments offers your favorite classic massages and facials, to the more exotic treatments, including our Himalayan Salt Massage and Crushed Cabernet Scrub.

 

 

Conquer your New Year Resolutions and keep your life classically balanced this year with a Club Mirbeau membership.

There are Day Spas, and then there are Day Resorts.

With Spa Mirbeau’s Grand Opening right around the corner, the countdown is on for perfecting our brand-new Day Resort! While we don’t want to reveal too much before our Grand Opening on November 15th, the picture above is a sneak peak of what we think will be your favorite Spa Mirbeau hot spot (no pun intended): Our heated Aqua Terrace!

Between the fireplace, the gigantic steamy pool and the soft sun peeking through the skylight, you won’t be able to stay away from our cozy Aqua Terrace. Sipping a glass of wine in a cozy robe might just be your new favorite way to decompress after a stressful day at work.

But Spa Mirbeau will be so much more than just the Aqua Terrace. In fact, it will be so much more than a spa! Our hope is that you truly come to enjoy Spa Mirbeau as a lifestyle destination. We hope some days you come for Le Bistro, to enjoy a glass of wine and light French fare with samplings from the Mediterranean. That other days you come to enjoy a group fitness class in either our yoga or spin room. Maybe your favorite visits to Spa Mirbeau will be those times you cap your shopping trips at Crossgates with a visit to our Boutique.

No matter how you join us, we hope you enjoy everything we have to offer. Starting November 15th, we’re here to help you relax, enjoy life and unplug from the outside world. Because at Spa Mirbeau, we’re all about making life just a little more balanced.
