Discover the Hidden Well Spring of Power in your Body with WHITE TIGER TAOIST MEDICAL QIGONG - a powerful and effective meditative movement & exercise system used to cultivate inner peace and vitality, and promote healing and wellness.
Join White Tiger Qigong Instructor Sarah Divine, in a series of six weekly classes, as we explore ancient Qigong exercises, inner alchemy and breathing techniques for healing and transformation. The focus will be on stress-reduction as well as generally improving mobility markers (strength, stability and flexibility) in the body. Studies have shown that stress markers go down and immune markers increase after just ONE session of Qigong. Imagine what could happen if you make this part of your regular practice!
Beginners and those with experience alike will find inspiration and benefit. All movements can be modified to suit different levels of ability.
You will learn how the following three components are essential to enhanced immune response:
- The relaxation response
- Healthy fascia
- The Three Treasures of Taoist Qigong (Jing, Qi & Shen)
You will also learn a sequence of standing/seated Qigong breathing techniques, followed by dynamic Qigong practices (from Meridian Qigong, 8 Trigram Organ Qigong and 5 Element Qigong) and completed with Qigong meditation.
These powerful techniques support awakening your inner vitality! 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. Qigong offers practical exercises that hold the capacity to heal old injuries, release emotional trauma, restore vital energy, and rejuvenate your spirit. Qigong is also a powerful exercise for preventative health care from illness and disease states. White Tiger Qigong combines ancient practices with modern sports science for optimal effect. Dynamic exercises are coupled with rhythmic, deep breathing, and harnessed intention of mind focus and spirit.
About Your Instructor: You will be expertly guided by Sarah Divine, Senior White Tiger Qigong Instructor, who also holds a master's degree in sport and exercise science. Sarah has been practising Qigong for over 12 years and teaching since 2015. She trained initially with Master Mantak Chia in the Universal Healing Tao Qigong system, and has been studying and training with Master Tevia Feng in White Tiger Qigong since 2016. She is now the most qualified White Tiger Qigong instructor in Australia.
Sarah is a member of the International Institute of Complementary Therapists and Ausactive (formerly Fitness Australia), as well as an associate member of ESSA (Exercise & Sport Science Australia).
Please wear comfortable, loose clothing. We either train barefoot, or with flexible thin-soled shoes. Also, make sure that your stomach is not full. I recommend eating at the very latest one hour prior to practising Qigong (and then only a light meal). For a heavier meal, I would leave at least two hours between eating and practice.
You need the space of a yoga mat, plus sufficient space to swing your arms around in all directions. Please have a chair handy for some seated practice.
If you have any health concerns regarding any part of the practice, please contact me in advance. I am a qualified exercise scientist, but you need to get clearance to exercise from an exercise physiologist or other suitable health professional if you have an injury or a chronic health condition.
