What is Qigong (or Chi Kung)?

Regulate the Body, Mind and Qi through postures, movements, relaxation and focus. Qigong is immeasurably beneficial & efficient at moving Qi, calming the Mind, strengthening the Body & harmonizing the physical, emotional and mental aspects of Being. Workshops covering a particular Qigong form are held throughout the year. These are usually 3 hours on a Sunday. Register your interest now and we’ll let you know about future workshops.

Qigong is based on the same principles that are applied in Chinese medicine. Movements & breath harmonise organs, meridians and emotions & rebalance our energy systems. Transform stuck, negative energy into positive healing energy. Subtle energy or life force flows freely through our bodies when we are in good health. Emotions are energy too. When this energy gets stuck or stagnant, it can lead to pain or ill health physically and emotionally. Chi Kung is a healing art that gently moves this energy and transmutes it into vitality and health. It's an enjoyable and gentle way to bring greater equilibrium to our bodies, minds & hearts.

Learn Ancient Methods for Peace and Wellbeing. For thousands of years the Chinese have practiced Qigong and Tai Chi to encourage health, prolong life, reduce stress, cuiltivate awareness, engender a sense of balance and elevate one’s mood.
