People who have studied qigong with us share their experiences...
Remarkably few people know about the system of self-care called Qigong (pronounced chee-gung). It is often compared to yoga and has strong links with Tai Chi.

What is qigong?
Qigong (pronounced “chee gung”) refers to a diverse set of practices that coordinate body, breath, and mind.
It is one of the major branches of Chinese Medicine (CM) which includes food therapy, massage (tuina), acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine.

Living beings have the dimensions of consciousness, energy and a physical body. We as human beings have the the ability and capacity to develop all these these dimensions to their highest potential.
Time is the most precious resource that any of us has. No amount of money or persuasion can ever extend our allotted time on this earth.
Each of us has a unique meaning and purpose in life to fulfil with the precious time that we have. However we need to learn to preserve our health and wellbeing in order to fulfil this purpose and make a meaningful contribution to our world.
Here we shall be focussing on managing our vital energy, Qi, to maintain our health so that we can fulfil this purpose.
