Tai Chi / Qi Gong
Tai Chi / Chi Gong - Wednesdays 10.30-11.30am
By practising Tai Chi and Chi Gong we encourage the smooth flow of energy throughout our body This helps to increase flexibility, suppleness and strength in the muscles. Because Qi Gong and Tai Chi uses smooth, flowing movements and controlled breathing techniques they also aid in relaxation and help to keep the mind calm and focused, giving a general sense of well being.This can help with numerous problems, e.g. stress related issues, high blood pressure, insomnia, and it can also help in rehab, ie. from cardiac issues and musculo skeletal problems. Chi Gong (Qi Gong) is a powerful system of healing and energy medicine from China (in China they have hospitals that specialise in this form of healing).
Peter teaches both Tai Chi (Taijiquan) and Chi Gong (Qigong). He teaches the Tai Ji 37 form, Eight Step Yang Style Short Form Tai Chi, the Eight Strands of Silk Brocade Chi Gong and an introduction to Dragon and Tiger medical Qi Gong -all of which are appropriate for all levels and are ideal for beginners and older adults.
QiGong - Thursdays 6.30- - on hold
Sana is an accredited teacher by White Tiger Qigong. Qigong is a meditative movement practice that brings together the body, breath, and spirit. The forms are easy-to-learn ancient Qigong exercises designed to improve mobility, increase strength and flexibility, get rid of body pain, balance emotions, and boost immunity. It is great for injury and illness prevention, as well as for rehabilitation.
This season, Sana will be teaching the smooth flowing 8 Trigram form. This form gently and rhythmically massages the internal organs, through smooth, flowing movements. It focuses on the core of the body, bowing the spine in every way possible. We use the legs to create a strong root into earth, while mobilising the spine and the core, while simultaneously wringing out the meridians of the arms to open up the body’s energy (Qi) pathways. This is a dynamic style of Qigong, full of movement and flow-state.
Other forms that we will move onto separate to the 8 trigram will include: 5 Element, 5 Animal, and Baduanjin. Classes are 1 hour. Block booking discounts available.
