Qigong / Tai Chi

Qigong is part of the ancient healing system of Chinese medicine. The term “qigong” is made up of the words “qi” meaning “vital energy,” and “gong” meaning “skill cultivated through steady practice.” Qigong is therefore about working with or mastering the energy of life. By consistently practicing the various forms of Qigong, which consist of gentle, easy, flowing movements you can regulate and harmonise your mind, body and spirit. This helps create a sense of peace, calm and relaxation for better health and wellbeing.

Benefits of practicing Qigong / Tai Chi

  • Stress Reduction: Find inner peace and tranquility through mindful meditation.
  • Energy Flow: Enhance your vitality and overall well-being.
  • Mental Clarity: Boost your focus and mental sharpness.
  • Holistic Wellness: Cultivate a harmonious mind-body-spirit connection.
  • Immune System Boost: Strengthen your body’s natural defenses.


Qigong – nourishing vitality

Classes include warm ups, a selection of qigong forms and a short meditation.

    • Qigong warm up
      • Warm ups help prepare your mind and body for the qigong movements. These exercises physically loosen, lubricate and rotate the joints to stimulate qi and blood circulation
    • Ba Duan Jin – Eight pieces of brocade
      • This form consists of 8 gentle stretches that help unblock the meridians, or energy channels of your body. These movements aid in increasing strength and flexibility within your body.
    • Taiji Qigong Shibashi
      • These 18 simple movements were developed in the 1980’s to integrate the yang (dynamic) style tai chi chuan postures and ancient qigong movements to stimulate the flow of qi through the meridians of your body. The interaction of yin and yang helps bring harmony to your mind, body and breath and so calm your nervous system.
    • Liu He Gong – Six Unity Exercise
      • Liu He refers to the six directions around you – upward, downward, north, south, east, and west. Doing this form helps you connect with the understanding that you are an integral part of the universe and therefore united with heaven and earth.  The soft, gentle movements of Liu He Gong can help you achieve a fresh open mind and tranquil spirit.
    • Liu Zi Jue – Six Healing Sounds
      • The Six Healing Sounds or ‘Liu Zi Jue’ is an ancient health cultivation practice. Learn gentle movements and mantras for the internal organs of the body: Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lungs, Kidney and San Jiao (Triple Heater). The Six Healing Sounds gently vibrates and massages the internal organs, clears stagnation and stale energy from the body, and harmonises the emotions to create a state of inner peace.
    • Guigen Qigong – Restoring Natural Harmony
      • This is a medical style of qigong that supports the restoration of natural harmony within your body. The six sections of Guigen Qigong each work with a different organ and meridian system of the body in Chinese Medicine.
