Tai Chi Qigong for Beginners - Caroline
1st September 2021
Qigong (pronounced Chee gung) is a type of gentle exercise which originated in China and has been practised for thousands of years.
Gentle movements are done repeatedly in a flowing sequence bringing together body, mind and breath which encourages relaxation and creates a meditative effect. The movements are simple and easy to follow which makes the practice available to most people. They can be done standing or seated or a combination of the two.
When we are mindful we are fully engaged with whatever we’re doing at the present time and we become more focussed and aware of our thoughts and feelings. Practicing mindfulness helps us to be more accepting and kinder to ourselves and others. This helps us to lower our stress levels and be more connected to who we want to be.
Practicing Qigong has been shown to have many health benefits including relaxing the mind and body, improving posture and balance, improving breathing and circulation, strengthening the joints and muscles, and improving energy levels and wellbeing. Because it can help to reduce stress it can help with many health conditions that are worsened by stress.
It would be great if you could join me to learn and practise this really enjoyable moving meditation. No equipment is needed, just wear comfortable clothing. We unusually practice in bare feet or non-slip socks. The session will end with a short seated or lying meditation for which you need to bring your own mat and blanket.
The cost of the class is £10 for the 1hour session.
You can take advantage of a reduced price of £45 for 5 sessions if you pay in advance.
Please make payment in advance by bank transfer or bring cash on the day but make sure you book your place as space is limited. Hope to see you soon.
Feel free to contact me by phone, text or email to book in and with any questions about the class. I will be happy to hear from you.
