The ancient Chinese art of Qigong dates back to over 7000 years ago and has over 2000 different forms.

Richard teaches a mixture of about 6 forms depending on the experience of the student.

When you practice and learn a qigong exercise movement, there are both external movements and internal movements. These internal movements or flows in China are called neigong or “internal power”. These internal neigong movements make qigong a superior health and wellness practice.

The internal movements also differentiate qigong from almost every other form of exercise in the West that often emphasizes prolonged cardiovascular movements (such as in running and biking) or that focus on muscular strength training (weight lifting).

The classes include guided meditation for beginners, breath work, grounding and slow movement while remaining focused and in control of the mind.

Chi Gung translates directly to energy work. The Chinese believe that all disease come from energy/ chi blockages along the meridians. These blockages are cause by negative emotions anger fear stress etc. Each of the 12 meridians is linked to a specific emotion. If these blockages/ stagnant chi are not cleared they can manifest into disease and cancer. Chi Gung has a similar effect to acupuncture without the needles and no experience is necessary to gain the positive effects.
