218 TUTOR: Emma Comfort
In the East, qigong is an important part of staying fit and healthy. Many thousands in China and Japan, often in local parks and open spaces, practise it. Practising qigong is self-empowering and fortifying for body, mind and spirit, yet is very simple and gentle to do. During this course, you will learn at least one sequence of 18 moves that you can practise at home and will develop strength, flexibility, mindfulness and centeredness.
QiGong and Tai Chi are very similar in both their execution and their purpose. It is practised regularly in China (in parks and public spaces) as a method for maintaining health and well-being. The sequences are straight-forward and easy to learn and practise at home.
During this course we will learn at least one sequence of 18 moves that can be practised at home and will develop strength, flexibility, mindfulness and centeredness.
You don't need to bring anything to the classes, but do wear loose comfortable clothing that is easy to move about in. Most of the exercises are performed standing, but can be adapted to sitting if required.
