“Qi gong is a strategy for freedom from our cage of isolation” – Garri Garripoli

Qi gong is a system of energetic and meditative practices that originated in Ancient China.

In this class, you will experience a variety of qigong forms to help loosen the body, clear stagnant energy, open energetic pathways and build qi. Additionally, the Zhineng Qigong form “Lift Qi Up Pour Qi Down” further opens pathways, increases vitality and awakens healing energy.

The simple movements of Qigong help balance the flow of Qi (life force energy) so that physical, energetic and spiritual vitality can be restored and maintained. It is, therefore, a great stress reducer.

The many benefits of Qi Gong can be classified into four main areas:

  • Promotes physical and emotional health
  • Develops fitness and vitality, which is used not only in martial arts and sports but also in our daily work and play
  • Ensures longevity
  • Enhances mental freshness.
