At the moment the rate of Covid infections in South Devon is too high for me to consider offering the class in person. I will start up again when this is much lower. If you are interested in joining please click here.

FRIDAYS 10-11.30am Sliding scale £5-£12 per class New students very welcome.
We will follow Covid guidelines. Class limited to 15 students.
I will be seeking to manage the risk and create an environment where we feel safe and relaxed. With this in mind I am asking the following of all those who attend:
• we maintain 2m social distance during our time in the hall.
• do not come if you or anyone in your home have any Covid 19 symptoms – a high temperature,
a new, continuous cough, or a loss of your sense of smell or taste
• wear a mask on arriving and leaving the hall. There’s no need to wear a mask inside the hall, but you are free to do so if that helps your sense of safety.
• wash your hands regularly and as much as possible avoid touching your face, mouth and nose.
The class explores the Fundamental, Intermediate and Advanced Huagong Forms.
Being grounded in our connection with Earth and Space we tune into the energetic qualities of Jing (fluid), Qi (air) and Shen (light), engaging the power, liveliness and lightness of energy.
Do come along and join us, the first 2 classes of the term are open to new students to come along and try out the class on a pay per class basis.
Weekly classes are an excellent introduction to the Huagong Qigong practice for new students as well as an opportunity for experienced students to deepen their experience and understanding of energy and awareness.
The classes are a mixture of physical/vigorous Qigong, moving Qigong and meditative standing and sitting practices. The aim is to bring into balance our body, heart and mind, releasing ‘stale Qi’ and ‘old information’ and cultivating a connection to our potential, our life force, Qi.
Through the more physical aspect of the Qigong, we cultivate our Jing, physical essence or power, which can help rejuvenate the body on a cellular level.
The more meditative practices, including sitting, moving and standing Qigong, contain a strong energetic transmission, helping to wake up the Qi, the body’s Intelligence and self regulating mechanism.
From a grounded, connected, settled, open state we can begin to let go into a more spontaneous practice, allowing the Qi to move us, freeing up the body light, or Shen. This can initiate strong internal transformation, release of old habits and patterning and a fresh response to life.
The atmosphere of the classes is playful, empowering, non-competitive and relaxed.
