Health QiGong is a holistic exercise regime that combines body, breath and mind, and is based on slow, flowing and effective three-dimensional movements. The first aim is to adjust posture and movement, the second is to adjust and regulate breathing and the third is to adjust mental concentration. There is strong evidence that Health Qigong, which was developed and widely practised in China, greatly improves the physical and mental health of those who regularly practise it. QiGong is particularly beneficial to the older population, improving posture, balance, breathing effectiveness and general coordination, as well as mental focus and relaxation, helping older people make the most of their mature years. The course does not require any previous knowledge and all exercises are done standing. No equipment needed, just wearing comfortable clothing and thin exercise shoes or socks.
Note: The Autumn and Spring terms will be held via video-conference (Zoom).
