- regular practice helps to develop a calm and relaxed state of mind;
- qigong relieves stress and anxiety and boosts energy – at the end of the class you feel great!
“I always come away feeling better – more at ease and ready for the day!”

What to expect
In this introductory qigong course you will learn the first set of the ‘Shibashi 18’ form – a set of movements suitable for complete beginners, including people with limited mobility. As you practice, you will improve your posture and also learn to breathe, meditate and relax.
Qigong enhances flexibility, balance, muscular strength and has a positive impact on the respiratory system. The meditative elements increase self-awareness, emotional regulation and relaxation.
