Qigong exercises integrate body postures, movement, breathing and meditation for a healthy life, spiritual advancement and/or martial arts training. Qigong outdoors recently appeared on BBC 1 Countryfile (November 2020).
What are the benefits?
Qigong is highly effective for improving health and vitality when practised regularly. Benefits of Qigong are increasingly recognized worldwide and within the scientific community. Qigong benefits range from mind relaxation and stress reduction to increased energy, vitality and helping to heal degenerative and chronic diseases.
Literally millions practice Qigong exercises in China and around the world each day to successfully treat diseases ranging from coronary heart disease, hypertension to cancer.
What does the class involve?
Our Taiji Qigong course focuses on the 18 movements known as “Shibashi” which was created by Professor Lin Housheng who is an internationally recognized qigong master.
Although I didn’t learn directly from Prof Lin, my teacher – Mark Peters was Prof Lin’s closed student, and therefore I have benefited from learning this practice from a highly skilled and authentic teacher. When practised regularly, one quickly becomes aware of the amazing benefits both to mind and body.
This truly is a welcome alternative to the traditional western aerobic exercise approach, which focuses primarily on increasing the heart and respiration rate with much faster and more stressful movements. Learning to feel and cultivate one’s internal energy force or Chi is a truly wonderful and healing experience.
Our next exciting course is something a little different and not as widely known or practiced, although it offers all of the benefits of Qi-Gong plus the additional benefits of resistance training.
I am planning to launch this new 8 week course on Friday 3rd September. The cost will be £79 (Plus ball £9) and places will be limited so please book asap to secure your place. I will be supplying a soft Weighted 1 KG Ball for all you that live locally (Sussex) at £9 each. For those of you that don’t live in Sussex it will probably be cheaper to purchase a ball from Amazon as postage will be expensive.
How much does it cost?
Classes are £79 for 8 week course
