MORNING: The day begins with an introduction to your own Chi energy, Chi Kung, energy basics from Tai Chi, and a series of flowing moves derived from the first third of the Yang Cheng Fu style of Tai Chi Chuan. We also begin to explore an Inter-Dimensional approach, bringing in elements of Cranio-Sacral Rhythms and Energy Yoga.

AFTERNOON: Introducing you to TYS - Tai-yo-shin™, we take your experience of your own Chi energy built through the morning's work and move it into subtle movements that blend the morning's experience with Ranna's Inter-Dimensional Yoga approach - see below.

Ranna's yoga method incorporates subtle Cranio-Sacral rhythms with healing contacts from Polarity Therapy. This expansive blend supports your healing process towards well-being by working on several systems of the body including the cellular level, fascia, nervous system and the expression of subtle elements arising in "ether/space" of the energy template of your being. Approaching her movement work with her knowledge as an artist-musician and from her research in ethnomusicology as part of her doctorate, the "right" cross-cultural or ambient music has always been a part of Ranna's classes. especially that which accesses aspects of the nervous system. Through the combination of deep subtle movement, sound, and expression, her method brings a rejuvenated, serene, sense of rested wakefulness.

Ranna®Yoga™ - an Inter-Dimensional Yoga PlusTM approach - is Ranna's improvement on her TYS - TaiYoShinTM movement form (nick named "Move It!") which she first developed in 1989 and 1990 while living in Tokyo (1988 - 1991). At that time her method blended Tai Chi, Chi Kung, medical Chi Kung, Yoga, and chiropractic follow up exercises.

Before that, Dr Ranna-Lesley Lachlan's (PhD, RPP) first inter-disciplinary work with Polarity Therapy principles was for a major analysis (inclusive of visual and musical elements) of the human body divided according to element and triad theory in 1986 (work completed during 1984 - 1986) (Australia).
