Eight piece of silk (baduanjin) refresher workshop

Saturday May 25th at Brighton Natural Health Centre

This is a refresher workshop for anyone who has learnt the baduanjin form with me previously. It is also suitable for those who have studied other forms of qigong with me. The Baduanjin (eight pieces of brocade) is a classic qigong form dating back to at least the 12th century. As its name implies, there are eight movements that work the body in a wide range of ways. It can also help one develop mental and physical stability, internal power and resilience.

Crane form workshop

Sunday July 7th at Brighton Natural Health Centre

Qigong trains us to seamlessly integrate our body, breath and mind into a transformational state. Five-animal qigong (crane, tiger, bear, deer, monkey) is the oldest known form, with its roots in ancient shamanistic practice. The elegant crane is associated in the Chinese tradition with wisdom and long life, and in qigong with the lungs. The crane form encompasses all the core skills of classic qigong whilst focusing particularly on developing balance and an elastic body.
