Pronounced ‘chee-gong’, it loosely translates as ‘vital energy cultivation’ or ‘mastery of your energy’. Sometimes referred to as the Chinese equivalent to yoga, qigong is more than a physical practice, with many health & healing benefits for the body, mind and spirit. You can practise it as an individual mind-body exercise – as it’s probably most commonly known in the western world – but also as a health & healing practice within Traditional Chinese Medicine. Yoga is a Ayurvedic (therapeutic) mind and body practice with origins in ancient Indian philosophy. The various styles of yoga combine physical postures, breathing techniques, and meditation or relaxation. A combined Qigong & Yoga practice – Just as there is a wide variety of benefits, there are also a wide variety of forms. These combined practices focus more on breathing, and movement meditation, bringing together these gentle yet powerful qigong practices and more dynamic yoga movements. Across all, the aim is to increase and balance our vital energy, health and wellbeing Venue: Oxley Park Community Centre Redgrave Dr, Oxley Park, Milton Keynes MK4 4TA

Yoga Lily Team

Lily

Lily has been studying and practising yoga and qigong in China & UK over 20 years, and teaching since 2007. She draws inspiration from her training within established, classical yoga systems that focus on alignment, hatha vinyasa in its gentler form, yin, yin/yang, and restorative yoga styles, pranayama and meditation; blending the roots of Chinese healing traditions into a more holistic practice.

For her, practice covers not just the physical aspects of yoga but also aligning and unblocking the bodies meridian energy pathways to release Qi energy (prana) which flows through the bodies energy highway, bringing the mind, body and spirit back into balance.


“I am continually humbled by my students and teachers, my aim is always to teach from the heart and from the idea that yoga is the art of living, listening and learning, to embody this deeply spiritual tradition” – Lily

David

David teaches a slower paced yoga, weaving held poses with slow flows, mindful movement, pranayama, meditation and yoga nidra (yogic sleep) in a simple, down-to-earth way, to help you completely unwind and relax after your hectic day.

Based in Hatha yoga roots, whilst embracing and exploring modern yoga’s styles and movement. David’s classes are active yet calming, he offers soft pauses, stillness and challenges throughout, to create balance for mind and body, as well as the spirit. Through his encouraging style he hopes to share, yoga’s toolbox of self discovery, nurturing both physical and mental wellbeing.


“I find my peace in movement and breath, the pause within the yoga pose my meditation. My wish is to share how these magical moments of stillness within movement will help you find your peace and calm” – David

What our customers are saying about us

Myself and my wife Marylia started Lily’s classes on Monday evening 8 months ago, I found it very challenging at first but excellent and slept so well afterwards. Now we make sure we go every week and try not to miss a class. Marylia used to have back problems but since starting she has had no problems and is much more relaxed. Great class, just need time to be able to do more classes.

Simon

I’ve just completed a 5 week beginners course with Yoga Lily. David has been a wonderful, patient, kind and inspiring teacher and through his classes I have begun to find a deeper level of inner peace and mindfulness. Although some of the poses have been challenging, I really enjoy this and am already seeing improvements in my core strength and flexibility. I’m looking forward to continuing my journey with David, further deepening my understanding of yoga and extending the considerable benefits that it is already bringing to my life. Thank you David.

Elizabeth, Beginners Course

I joined a beginners course a complete novice and immediately loved it! David is an excellent teacher. Patient, kind and calming. Nearly six months on I’m absolutely loving my yoga classes. I leave each class feeling fantastic! My long term hip & back pain no longer trouble me. I feel fitter, more flexible and most importantly calmer & able to deal with life’s challenges. I always thought I’d like to give yoga a go & can honestly say it’s been one of the best decisions I have ever made. Thank you David & Yoga Lily
