“I shall never forget this day ~ wonderful class, fabulous views, excellent food. Thank you so much!” Frankie
I’m in agreement with Frankie! We were a cosy group for the Qi Gong workshop yesterday, and I was so pleased I had the opportunity to join the class. What power in the slow, deliberate movements! Such grace and gentleness in the simplicity of sequences! We were all quite amazed really at how peacefully powerful qi gong could be. This ancient practice has its origins in chinese martial arts and was developed to improve and maintain one’s health on all levels – body, mind and spirit. Stress is the number 1 cause of the body falling into dis-ease but with these simple – although, surprisingly not easy – techniques, we can keep the body in optimum condition, and in so doing, keep the dreaded symptoms of stress and its related side effects at bay.
The reason simple movements can be difficult to do is because generally, we move at such speed and with so many other distractions going on in our mind that we ‘forget’ either to breathe or how to be deliberately slow with our movements, or both! I was deeply impressed and found the day profound, powerful and peaceful.
If you’ve ever wondered what Qi Gong is all about, or even how to pronounce it, now’s your chance to find out! We’re running a workshop to introduce Qi Gong to Beginners on Tuesday 25th June here at UTLT. Try something new by learning this ancient practice! Similar to Tai Chi but different, you’ll understand balance and coordination, strength and softness, stillness and movement all at the same time!
With its origins in centuries old martial arts, the regular practice of Qi Gong will revitalize mind and body, bringing improved health, reduced stress and clearer thinking to the student. Don’t miss out on this chance to learn from established practitioner and accomplished teacher Brigitta Wingate, who’s been successfully running courses in other areas of France for some time now. Sign up and book this date into your diary – you won’t be disappointed!
