Ruth takes you through some QiGong exercises:

What to expect

Led by Ruth, these calming exercise classes help women feel more relaxed and in tune with their bodies. They combine the flowing movements of QiGong (similar to Tai Chi and pronounced Chi Gong) alongside breathing, meditation and acupressure. Classes start with warm up exercises and then you’ll be shown, step-by-step, short sequences of movements that support good posture, balance and flexibility. There is also guided meditation and breathing exercises. QiGong exercises are from standing but you’ll be seated on the floor for the meditation.

Wear loose, comfortable clothing and flat footwear (trainers or non-slip socks with grips are ideal), and bring water too. You may also want to bring your own yoga mat.
