Quan Yin Qigong healing classes for Self Care and Empowerment



Breathwork, Movement and Meditation Classes

We now offer a new series of qigong (breathwork, movement and meditation) classes, which will focus on the cycles of nature’s 5 seasons and their inter-relationship and influence upon body-mind-spirit and our overall wellbeing.  Each season will feature specific practices to activate, relax and strengthen the the physical and energetic systems, as well as the psycho-spiritual states associated with that particular element and season.

What is qigong?

It is an ancient moving meditation exercise and therapeutic health care system which has its roots in Traditional East Asian Medicine, and is adapted for our modern times.   Qigong is easy to learn and integrates body postures, movement, deep breathing, mental focus, and a meditative state. It is both gentle and strengthening for all ages to practice.

This art and practice of harmonising the body, mind, and spirit has been used for thousands of years by Taoist and Buddhist teachers and martial artists. Today qigong is practised by millions of people worldwide.

Components of our Qigong self-healing classes

  • relaxation (fang song gong)
  • stretching (dao-in)
  • clearing and moving blocked energy (ping qi)
  • self-healing massage (tui na)
  • meditation

The aim of our classes is to facilitate and support a harmonious flow of loving kindness, vitality, happiness and inner peace which are essential elements in all healing and transformation processes.

What can qigong do?

Qigong  balances, activates and increases the supply and flow of vital energy (qi) throughout the body. This has a harmonising, strengthening and healing effect on the functioning of the internal organs, the nervous system,  energy channels (meridians) and over-all psycho-spiritual state.  Body, mind, heart and spirit are restored to an integrated wholeness.

Who can benefit from qigong?

Qigong practice is beneficial for all ages, and for those who wish to participate actively in their own well-being and are committed to a regular practice of compassionate self-care. Students, busy professionals, office workers, those with physical restrictions, and older adults can all benefit from qigong practice.
