Qigong(Chinese Yoga) has been practiced and refined over thousands of years. These ancient exercises stretch and strengthen the physical body while repairing blockages in the energy body, stimulating acupuncture points and massaging the internal organs.
We practice in accordance with the Five Elements (Wu Xing), which relate to the seasons, internal organs, emotions and integrated function of the individual within the greater cosmos. The forms used in classes/workshops are the “Five Animal Movements”(circa 120-225 CE), “Ba Duan Jin”(circa 1177 – 1279 CE), “Stick Qigong” and “Healing Sounds” (circa 3500 BCE). They can be practiced and refined over a lifetime to give holistic balance and health.
These simple effective movements, performed from a standing position are suitable for all ages and abilities.
