Mondays at 10.15am

With the great amount of interest shown in the taster session held in September 2023, we have decided to make our qigong session a regular activity in the portal!

Join Tracy (our chair yoga teacher) for our of seated qigong sessions (pronounced Chee Gong). qigong is an ancient Chinese practice, developed to enhance health and wellbeing through focused movement and breath. It is similar but different to traditional Hatha Yoga, which has origins in India.

There are physical and mind-based components, with a strong emphasis on slow flowing movements, breathwork and meditative practices. Through regular practice you may learn to

  • Move mindfully and with more ease
  • Feel more energised
  • Use your mind to overcome negative thoughts
  • improve your balance

qigong originates in China, developed as part of traditional Chinese Medicine. Today it is practiced all over the world and its slow methodical approach and focus on connection to nature means that it can be enjoyed by many, regardless of ability.

Each 45-minute session will be entirely seated, although, if preferred, some of the practices may be taken into standing. There will also be the opportunity for discussion.
