Qigong is the ancient art of Chinese self-healing. Qi translates as ‘life energy’, gong as exercise. Cultivate a variety of easy to learn, yet powerful forms , designed to connect you to your body and help bring a lasting sense of harmony and well being. Mindful movement exercises connect us to the natural flow of Qi in and around us and thus to the root of our vitality. Ideal for those recovering from illness, surgery or managing long-term health conditions: physical, mental or emotional by clearing energetic blockages and removing stagnation from the body: combat stress, aches, pains, depression and tension, whilst strengthening the body and promoting inner stillness.
QIGONG : online classes for Health & Happiness
no experience needed – everyone welcome – go at your own pace – be comfy in your space & clothes – barefoot – stand or sit – if any move is too hard: imagine it and breathe, as mind and breath move the Qi – take breaks – water at hand
time for self-nurture: listen to our body, mind & heart with compassion. move, soften, open, making space within, connect, come back home to ourselves, receive, fill up, contribute our overflow to the world.
