What is qigong?
Qi means energy, and gong means work or exercise. Qigong involves the cultivation and circulation of 'qi' or functional energy through the body's organs and meridians to improve health and vitality.
Qigong exercises form a vital part of 'yang sheng' (healthy life) in traditional Chinese medicine. The gentle movements and standing postures aid relaxation by concentrating and calming the mind, relieving mental and physical tension and restoring 'qi'.
Chinese medicine aims to return the body to a state of balance. Qigong exercises work on different organs (liver, heart, spleen, lung and kidney) and fundamental substances (qi, blood, essence) to create a harmony of yin and yang.
Who can teach qigong?
Our qigong teachers are trained in the UK and China and are members of the British Council for Chinese Martial Arts and the British Acupuncture Council. Contact Laura to find out more about her classes and one to one sessions.
