Whether you are feeling jagged and ungrounded, want to relieve stress, are recovering from (or living with) illness or want to exercise without the press-ups, Qigong is a wonderful discipline to embrace. It provides us with tools to maintain physical health, ground our emotional resilience and open to our deeper creative abilities.
With Qigong you can benefit from:
• A stronger immunity to fight colds and recover from illness
• Lower blood pressure
• Increased flexibility
• More energy, brightness and vitality
• Better mind-body integration
• A general feeling of contentment, peace and happiness
• Deeper spiritual connection and meditation
I teach Qigong because I believe we all have an innate ability to health and resilience.
My approach focuses on developing your relationship with your own healing abilities, improving relaxation, clarity and emotional stability.
The process allows for a natural integration of mind, body and heart. Qigong practice is also a wonderful, if not essential, support to meditation and embodied spiritual inquiry.
The time of practice itself is an opportunity to de-stress, pause and listen. The slow movements and the intention of the practice offer a space for self-awareness and compassion, the basis for self-healing.

What is Qigong?
Qigong is an ancient Chinese system of healing and energy medicine. Qigong is a powerful healing art that involves gentle movements, meditation and breathing techniques to cleanse, circulate, strengthen and ground our life energy. Qigong:
Works with the flow of Qi (or Chi) our "life force" or "life energy" for healing purposes, purposefully working with the Qi flow so as to restore a healthier balance within and between the different functions of the body.
Is one of the most effective self-healing methods in the world. It is easy to learn, the only investment needed is time and the beneficial effects are cumulative.
Originated in China thousands of years ago from shamanism, Taoism and Buddhism, and traditional Chinese medicine. It has close links with martial arts and tai chi.
Can be practiced sitting on a chair for those who are ill or disabled. It doesn’t require learning long complicated forms, so it is very accessible in that way.
What does Qigong mean?
Qi means “vital energy”, “breath” or “life force”. It's a concept from traditional Chinese culture.
Gong means cultivation or mastery. Qigong therefore could be translated as “cultivation of vital energy” or “mastery of your energy”.
What is it to me?
I came across Qigong in 1995 and it felt like the most natural thing in the world. I practised regularly for a couple of years, but sadly life took over and it went onto the backburner.
I came back to it in 2011 for health reasons, studying Huagong with Daverick Leggett initially. I have been hooked ever since. I have the privilege to study with Zhixing Wang himself and other skilled teachers in the Huagong, Neigong and Taijiwuxigong traditions. I began teaching Qigong in 2017.
Initially Qigong was about healing my body, but it has very much become part of my spiritual practise and a way of life. Qigong makes me feel healthy, happier, stronger and more balanced. It helps me connect to what is beyond my “self”.
