We offer a diversity of styles ranging from gentle and flowing movement meditations to deep dynamic stretching forms, giving you a rich foundation and a well-rounded understanding of the knowledge, theory and wisdom of the practice.
We specialise in applying Qigong to relieve symptoms of mental health challenges such as stress, anxiety and depression, using the discipline of Qigong as a complimentary therapy.
Our approach is holistic and produces noticeable results after just one session. When practiced regularly, this can evolve into a deeply felt transformation.
What makes our classes unique is the attention to detail given to learning each form, the clear and concise class facilitation, and providing a safe and supportive learning environment. This allows you let go of the challenges of the day and to take a journey through the class into presence and calm.
The legend of the Dragonfly
With gentle, graceful, agile and deliberate movements, the Dragonfly embodies many of the qualities of Qigong.
Known as the Qing Ting in Chinese, the dragonfly is one of the lesser known animals of Feng Shui and carries great symbolic meaning.
Traditionally in ancient rural Chinese culture, dragonflies were seen favourably among farmers, as they would hunt other insects that they saw as pests. This led to them being seen as an emblem to drive away bad luck.
Furthermore, it became folklore that when a dragonfly entered your house, that it would bring harmony, blessings and loving relationships to the family and dispel all negative energy from the home.
This would extend to people living in the home, signifying purification in dispelling bad energy from their bodies, and promoting healing and recovery from poor health.
