A short video about

Yuan Gong



Qigong means 'controlling Qi'

You have probably experienced Qi and been aware of it, but perhaps without knowing what it was. Find out more about Qi.





Why learn Yuan Gong?

    • Move beyond common practices which focus primarily on the physical level to deeper, more comprehensive methods designed to fully unify the body, consciousness and self to generate tangible, dramatic changes
    • Learn safe, effective still and movement-based methods that expand consciousness as well as build and strengthen the vital energies which represent the basic foundation of our health and well-being 
    • Know how to cultivate key qualities of trust, openness, love, gratitude and true respect, both internally and externally
    • Create a better life by adopting internal approaches that enable us to deal effectively with personal challenges from an emotional, mental, behavioral and interpersonal perspective

Foundation Workshop on Life Cultivation  

Monday March 13 and 20, 12.30 – 3 pm

Many of us are aware that the problems facing humanity - health, wellbeing, our relationship with ourself, with each other and with nature -  and our inability to deal with them properly, has something to do with the state of the human consciousness. This needs to change now, but how do we do it?


How do we change deep-set thoughts and habits? There is no weekend fix for this, but there is a way to get started immediately and effectively. 


You will gain knowledge on:

    • What is a human life?
    • What is our place in the universe?
    • What is Qi (a.k.a. life force, energy)? Where is Qi? 
    • What is the relationship between Qi and a human life?
    • What is the relationship between Qi and human consciousness?
    • What is human consciousness?

This knowledge will help you know better who you are and see how the exercises below can help you.


What you will do:

    • Learn the two foundational methods of Yuan Qigong (Gathering Qi and Nourishing Qi)
    • Experience benefits of this practice in class:
      • feel more stable, more focused and refreshed
      • experience relaxation which is the foundation for health and wellbeing 

What you will take home: 

    • An experience of what Yuan Qigong can do for you.
    • Two powerful practices that can change your life if you practice them regularly.
    • A deeper understanding of who you are and how to take care of your life, so that you can keep growing and help others more effectively.
    • If you are dealing with a health issue or are feeling anxious about the state of the world, these methods will empower you and bring stability to your body and mind. This is such a precious gift, and is possibly a new beginning for you.
