Qigong – The meaning of the movement

April 27 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Energia Vital - workshops in Congleton, Cheshire

Qigong Workshop – The meaning of the movement in Congleton, Cheshire.

At the core of Qigong are a few fundamental concepts. These concepts are  surprisingly simple, but their simplicity is such that they can be elusive and difficult to grasp.

While it’s possible to express the concepts in simple terms, the process of coming to understand them requires both practice and application. In this workshop we will explore these fundamental concepts through an authentic mixture of body and mind focussed practice.

Whether you are just starting on your journey with qigong, or you’re already on your path. Together, we will explore how the 8 phrases of Zhineng Qigong relate to the practice and application of qigong in order to unlock the potential that resides within this powerful, simple approach.

Join Marilia Blackburn, from Energia Vital, and John Millar, from The Qigong Academy, for a one day workshop.
