About the Event

What's it all about?

Qi Gong is a therapeutic exercise that weaves together movement, breathing, self massage and meditation into a gentle art and a complete system of health maintenance. It originated from observing movements of animals and nature. It has a lot of similarities with Tai Chi movements.

The form taught is called "18 Lohan Hands". This form covers a general spectrum of Qi Gong activity from dynamic (Wei Kung) to quiescent/internal (Nei Kung). It is based on ancient traditional knowledge of the functioning of mind and body. It teaches how to use the mind, breathing patterns and body movements to improve the circulation of the internal body's energy. It is relevant to a wide spectrum of health concerns.

General Benefits of Qi Gong:

  • Activates the flow of Chi (intrinsic life energy) along the meridians.
  • Strengthens the internal organs.
  • Increases longevity through maintenance of health and vigour.
  • Exercise all the joints and muscles.
  • Promote inner balance and serenity therefore dealing with stress issues.
  • Prevention of occupational diseases example repetitive strain injuries.
  • Complements other forms of physical activity and general martial art forms.
  • It has been thoroughly researched that Tai Chi and Qi Gong exercises can be used to manage arthritis pain.
