Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system suitable for all ages that integrates gentle physical exercises, breathing techniques and meditation, creating an awareness of our bodies and minds that leads to a greater sense of health and well being influencing dimensions of our being that are not part of traditional exercise programs.
Sessions include meditation, gentle rhythmic movements and a number of different energy building/moving forms developed to reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system.
The forms and system were developed by Dr. Ming Pang in the 1970s and 1980s as a synthesis of many ancient lineages of Chinese healing practices. This style of Qigong was originally developed for use in the world’s largest Chinese ‘medicine-less hospital’, and is now practiced widely throughout the world. The style employs a holistic system of movement, meditation, visualisation, sound/vibration and other spiritual awareness techniques for healing.
