YOUR QI GONG CLASSES
Qi Gong literally means “the work of vital energy”. This ancient Chinese discipline is over 2000 years old and is based on a holistic view of life.
The movements of Qi Gong are gentle and slow and are combined with breathing techniques, visualisation and meditation. The consciousness is directed inwards to feel and act on the flow of energy. Gradually, we learn to master our Qi “vital energy”.
Why practise Qi Gong?
It helps us to :
- Increase our vitality: The energy reserve of our body increases with the practice of Qi Gong.
- Boost our immunity: Immunity depends directly on the energy level in the body. By increasing it, we stimulate our immune system.
- Improve our mental capacities: some Qi Gong exercises are particularly aimed at developing the brain’s energy. The aim is to improve concentration, memory, creativity, etc.
- Gain physical strength: The circulation of Qi improves with practice and allows it to reach the fascias and muscles better, so the body gains in tonicity.
- Work on our emotional balance: In Chinese medicine, each emotion belongs to an organ. By using various techniques such as visualisation, one learns to identify and neutralise negative emotions stored by certain organs and to transform them into positive emotions.

Qi Gong - The 6 therapeutic sounds method
As traditional Chinese medicine teaches, the harmonisation of energies is central to the development of vital energy. This method combines the emission of sounds with movements.
The sound emissions vibrate the energy of the different organs and the movements are designed to activate each of the twelve meridians.
The objective is to liberate accumulated emotions such as stress, anger or sadness so that the organs regain harmonious energy. This Qi Gong is taught in Chinese hospitals to accompany the remission of certain diseases such as diabetes or hyperthyroidism.
The class begins with a series of Qi Gong warm-ups and stretches before practicing the 6 therapeutic sounds.
Tai Ji Qi Gong
