The term Qi Gong means 'energy work'. It is used to refer to sets of simple exercises that have been used in China for centuries to promote good health, to prepare for martial arts practice and to aid spiritual development.
Qi Gong exercises fall into three categories - regulatory, tonifying and purgative. Practice involves the use of slow, gentle body movements, specific breathing techniques and self-massage to improve the flow of Qi throughout the whole energy body.
It may not look much from the outside but the effects of Qi Gong are felt powerfully on the inside, and the positive changes that regularly take place in the lives of practitioners speak for themselves.
I bring to my teaching many years of exploration into Daoism and Shamanism and a passion for sharing the practices I have found invaluable in my own journey of healing and transformation. My teaching is experiential and embodied and my classes delivered with warmth and humour. Participants work at their own level and at their own pace in a relaxed and supportive environment.
I have had the privilege of studying and training for many years with Damo Mitchell of Lotus Nei Gong International (formerly Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts), completing my 3 year Qi Gong teacher training in 2013.
My focus is on teaching the foundational practices of Daoist Qi Gong :
Preparations and alignments
Conditioning the physical body
Regulating the breath and mind
Qi self massage
Ji Ben Qi Gong
Wu Xing Qi Gong
Wu Dao Yins
Hunyuan Qi Gong
