Practiced in China by young and old alike for over one thousand years Medical Qigong is a complete healthcare system. Its gentle flowing movements, integrated breathing and meditative awareness invigorates our natural healing ability bringing an enhanced experience of wellbeing and physical fitness.
This term Tony will introduce one of the oldest and most practiced qigong forms.
Yi Jin Jing Qigong
Yi Jin Jing features extended, soft and even movements displaying grace and charm, and it focuses on the turning and flexing of the spine, thus invigorating the limbs and internal organs. These movements have been proved to improve health and fitness, prevent diseases, lengthen life and improve the intellect.
In particular, practice of the Yi Jin Jing exercises has very impressive effects on the respiratory system, flexibility, balance and muscular strength. It can also prevent and cure diseases of the joints, digestive system, cardiovascular system and nervous system.
The class focus will be on safe relaxed practice to suit the capacities and experience of participants and will be continuously reviewed and addressed so we can enjoy our progress on the course.
Nourishing Life is the fundamental understanding of Yangsheng Gong or Medical Qigong. Simple yet innately powerful it works through our engagement with daily life, bringing abundant energy, good humour and natural courage.
Complimenting and supporting other systems of personal healthcare such as Tai Chi, Yoga, Pilates, Meditation etc., this course is suitable for both beginners and improvers.
