I am experimenting with a new model for my online Qigong teaching this year. I am offering more and shorter classes covering every day of the week. Instead of enrolling for individual classes you can now enrol for a week and attend as many classes as you like. The fee for this is £10 per week.
You can join at any point and the classes are suitable for all levels of experience.
Here’s how it works:
• you enrol, once only. The system sets up an automated weekly payment and automatically adds your name to a participant list
• you can cancel or pause your payment at any time with ease
• you will be sent a new link by email each week
• this single link works for all classes

About the classes
Meditation. The meditation can be practised on the floor or on a chair. The practice will build in weekly stages with the same practice being repeated for five days then further developed the following week. The theme for the Spring and Summer will be the use of hand gestures/mudra and will include internal alchemy and specific healing gestures for the organs.
Five Animal forms. The Five Animal practices are more physical than most Huagong practices. They are also the most playful. In all cases they are energising and strengthening. The animal forms imitate the movements of deer, tiger, bird, bear and monkey in a stylised way and the practice steers a course between form and spontaneity. Like all Huagong, the essence of the practice is to connect, in this case to the spirit/energy of the animal.
Five Organ Qigong. I will be teaching a set of movements for the Yin organs (Kidney, Liver, Heart, Spleen, Lung). Once we have learned this set, we will focus more closely on each organ in turn, learning other complementary exercises, hand gestures and meditations.
Other themes will be introduced as the season progresses.
