Join us this Sunday from 9:45am for a free 30 minute run-through of the full Eight Brocades health qigong practice and bring a little joy to start the day.

Regular practice is believed to improve organ function and both physical and mental health and wellbeing. A daily 12 minute practice for people of all ages and ability.

Please note: this is a practice of the full sequence rather than a class.

Qigong is a powerful system of health, which has effects on many levels

Qigong can harmonise, strengthen and have healing effects on the functioning of all the internal organs and bodily systems. It increases the flow of energy throughout the body which has many rejuvenating effects, and is believed to increase longevity whilst calming both the mental and emotional states.

Gently focussed movements, open and stretch the joints and muscles of the body, releasing deeply held tension that may have been locked in for years. Increasing the flow of blood and energy, these movements fully nourish all parts of the body; releasing neck shoulder and lower back tensions, Many of our students report feeling very relaxed and energised after Qigong, and that they are able to sleep deeply that night!

Lili has been studying and practising yoga in China & UK for 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” – Lili Chen.
