Workshop - Discover Qigong... an introduction
August 10 (Saturday) at 10:00 am

Class length
2 hours
This workshop is an introduction into Qigong, it is best suited to students with little or no experience with the practice. 

Qigong is more than exercise, it's a healing discipline for the body. It is a unique combination of movement, breath and meditation that improves the functioning of virtually all of the systems of the body and has both preventative and curative effects. 

In this workshop we cover:
  • What is Qigong?
  • Qi - energy, aliveness - discover more?
  • Qigong & Traditional Chinese Medicine - how is it connected?
  • Roots and History of Qigong - where/how/when?
  • Qigong and evidence-based research
  • Types and styles of Qigong
  • Basis and fundamentals
  • Benefits
  • Modern Qigong practice
  • Classical Qigong practice

Qigong can be practised in many forms, styles and traditions. The modern approach is integrative; an easier, more engaging and dynamic form of practice. Classical Qigong is the traditional and ancient forms, which are sets of slow, precise, differentiated movements and postures. Either style of this powerful modality is a self-healing exercise therapy. Qi (Chi) translates to mean life-force energy, and Gong means to work, or cultivate. Qigong is adaptable and accessible as a movement practice delivering a range of physical, mental and emotional health benefits.

Qigong is effectively a moving meditation that explores acupressure, slow stretches, gentle flowing movements and presence. During practice we focus and anchor our attention on the breath and the body, and we use the meditative techniques of intention and visualisation to support the mind.

This offering is designed for people that have little or no experience in qigong.
Suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.
