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.
How can Qigong Work for Me? This Qigong has multiple benefits, including:
* Promoting deep relaxation
* Sharpening concentration
* Boosting vitality & energy
* Increasing range of motion
* Improving sleep
* Enhancing the immune system
* Building strength & stamina
* Strengthening digestion
Why Should I Practise Qigong? You will learn a set of Qigong exercises, breathing techniques and meditations to help keep the body energised & strong, sharpen the mind & hone the spirit. These practices can empower you to:
* cultivate self-knowledge

Studies have shown that the chemicals which indicate stress responses in the human body have clearly decreased from just ONE 1-hour Qigong session! Anecdotally, people have told me that they feel more energised, grounded and balanced after their very first session and beyond.
What Practices will We be Doing? We will focus on:
*Standing/Seated Meditation and Breathing Techniques for deepening internal awareness and revitalising the body.
*A set of Meridian Qigong that can be used as a stand-alone practice or as a warm-up prior to deeper exercise. This set is designed to restore & support Qi flow throughout the body.
*5 Element Qigong. This set powerfully targets each one of the 5 Organ systems and related Meridians. It is characterised by:
-Squeezing out the organs like a sponge through movement of maximum expansion and contraction
-Rooting into the ground
-Wringing out the Meridians like a towel
-Relating to the 5 Elements in Classical Chinese Medicine 5 Element Theory
-5 Element Emotional Balance Meditation
*5 Animal Qigong. A 2,000 year old dynamic walking Qigong practice based on the movements of animals, which brings benefits on physical, physiological, emotional, & mental levels.
