Qi Gong Membership
Qi Gong is renowned worldwide as a method to promote good health, strengthen immunity and enhance longevity. These relaxing exercises are easy to learn and take a lifetime to master. Often described as moving meditation Qi Gong is a gentle and flowing workout for mind, body and soul.
Chris Taylor’s classes bring all of this and more. A practitioner for over twenty years, Chris will teach you powerful movement routines while also sharing the philosophical and spiritual underpinnings of the practice. This will help you to connect deeply with the life-force energy that is present in all things, to consider the deeper purpose in your life and to notice patterns in the way you respond to events.
By joining this Qi Gong membership programme you will have the opportunity to:
- Attend 16 live online sessions, delivered every 2 weeks
- Learn four complimentary Qi Gong practices:
- A full body relaxation and warm-up routine
- Six Sounds Qi Gong for Health
- Qi Gong for Life Purpose
- Eight Positions Static Qi Gong for Energy Strengthening.
This programme has been specially designed for beginners, people who have some experience of Qi Gong and for past participants of Chris’ Tai Chi courses at Hawkwood. The emphasis is on learning the exercises, progressively refining and enhancing practice and then embedding Qi Gong into your daily routine. We will progress from learning the moves, to deepening our practice through repetition and refinement.
