Qigong is a system of healing that comprises at least 5,000 years of wisdom, and several thousand styles. It is an integral system of exercise specifically designed to keep all the body organs and systems in top health. Ideal to maintain vitality & keep you feeling great!

During these classes, we will deepen our exploration of 8 Trigram Organ Qigong and other Qigong practices from the Taoist Medical Qigong lineage of Lao Tzu. In China, Qigong has been used for healing and strengthening the body for centuries. The chosen sequence of movements from White Tiger Qigong's 8 Trigram Organ Qigong together with specific meditations can ease back pain, strengthen the spinal column and the torso to minimise risk of future back problems, and improve the flow of energy (Qi) and blood in the body to boost your natural healing abilities. Added to this, better care of your spinal column leads to better flow of Qi and nutrients to the brain, thus enhancing brain health!

New course components include:

5 Animal Qigong - Autumn Roads

  • Explore a 2,000 year old dynamic walking Qigong practice based on the movements of animals, which brings benefits on physical, physiological, emotional, & mental levels.

Learning about the Kinetic Chain Principal Actions of Movement to help you feel the generation of Qi more easily and get into a flow state.
