Qi Gong or Chi Kung is a series of individual exercises that work with energy (Breathing is just one form of energy that the body uses).They are more akin to meditation and are primarily done standing
Chi Kung was born from the Dao Yin (Guiding & Stretching exercises) which are over 2,250 years old. Chi Kung and Tai Chi Exercises, are designed to re-align the posture and centralise ones core. Allowing the systems energies to flow through the body, encouraging joints to be more mobile, lessen tension throughout the body, whilst becoming more balanced in our daily lives.
These exercises can be performed almost anywhere, and at any time. So are suitable for all adults (only as growing children have different needs).
As is often the case with ancient ideas, these exercises are wrapped inside a philosophical base; where ancient Chinese taoist wisdom of balance and interdependences abound in yin and yang forces.
These classes are less linear than studying Tai Chi Chuan. Therefore any interested student may join at any time. Classes per class £10. Private tuition can be by arrangement, please email (link below).
