About the event
The term consists of 10 sessions in total, taught in 3 blocks:
Block 1 = 4 sessions. 24th and 31st Jan; 7th and 14th Feb.
Block 2 = 3 sessions. 21st and 28th Feb; 7th Mar.
Block 3 = 3 sessions. 14th and 28th Mar; 4th Apr.
You may book for 1, 2, or all 3 blocks. It is possible to start with the 2nd or even the 3rd block, but there must be a commitment to all classes of a block. This helps you to make a commitment to your wellbeing, and helps me to provide this valuable service.
NB There is no class on 21st March.
Each session is an hour long, followed by a chat over a cup of tea (which I provide).
Take this journey with me to discover the Hidden Well Spring of Power in your Body with WHITE TIGER QIGONG - a powerful and effective meditative movement & exercise system used to cultivate inner peace and vitality, and promote healing and wellness. I love this Qigong with a passion, and it has become my way of life.
I am deeply committed to sharing these practices so others can also benefit from exploring movement, inner alchemy and breathing techniques for healing, transformation, increasing energy reserves, AND BRINGING THEMSELVES INTO BALANCE - PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY, EMOTIONALLY & EVEN SPIRITUALLY.
Beginners and those with experience alike will find inspiration and benefit, and movements can be modified to suit different levels of ability (and can even be practised seated if need be).
During this course you will:
- Learn gentle movements to open up energy channels (Meridians) in the body.

- Improve circulation, digestion, elimination, sleep cycles, concentration & emotional balance.
- Discover ways to reduce stress, anxiety, body tension & pain.
- Learn about ‘Pulsing’, and how to combine this with intention, to send Qi to different parts of the body.

- Feel the power of harmonising body movement & posture with breath and spirit.
- Enhance your sense of energy and well-being.
Be ready for change - these movements energise as well as support true, deep relaxation by opening the Qi flow through the fascial lines and Meridians.
