QiGong can be practiced for three main reasons:
martial, medical & spiritual.
All QiGong will inevitably improve your health; by taking time to tune into your body and breath whilst moving in specific, time-proven ways to stretch and open the body will promote relaxation, which de-stresses the body. This in turn reduces stress-related symptoms of high blood pressure, anxiety, headaches, muscle tension etc.
This 5 week course will give you an introduction to Medical QiGong and we will cover theory and practice of exercises which are beneficial to many shared health issues in society: sore shoulders, lower back and knees, headaches, sleep problems, anxiety, digestive issues, high pulse and blood pressure, depression, respiratory conditions, muscle tension and more. The course will help you to optimise and maintain your health, so you needn't have any specific ailments to attend.
Movements are (mostly) gentle yet build strength and mobility.
Over the month we will teach a form - Ba Duan Jin - which has been practiced for over 1000 years, and is the most clinically studied form of QiGong. Each class will also include movements to stretch, open and connect the body, and seated practice to calm the mind.
For those interested here is a systematic review of Ba Duan Jin for health benefits:
Please pre-book into our classes so we can send you a form to fill out, if you would like to share your condition(s) we can teach tailored exercises during the class(es).
