  • Description:

    Health Qigong is a psychological practising skill that combines body, breath and mind into one exercise regime through 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 the Health Qigong, which was developed and widely practised in China, greatly improves general health of those who regularly practise it. In modern times it has become very popular for fitness purposes.

    Qigong is particularly beneficial, 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 clothing and thin exercise shoes or socks.
