Until restrictions on movement and meeting are lifted and we can return to face to face Qigong classes I am offering classes online. My hope is that these classes will support you to stay well and settled in mind and heart. The weekly classes are open to anyone.
The classes will continue until July 23rd then I will break for the summer. I intend to continue some online classes in the autumn whether or not there is a return to face to face teaching.
Tuesday evenings 5.30-7pm
Supporting our immune system. Each class we will use a selection from the Huagong self healing form, shen form, bird form, exercises to settle the nervous system, self slapping and rubbing to stimulate the defensive “wei Qi”, various lung and kidney exercises and a Lung mudra meditation.
£3-10. Open to anyone.
Wednesday mornings 10-11am
Hua Gong animal forms. This is a second round of the five animal sessions. On the first round we focused on the detail of the forms. This second round will focus on connecting with the essence or spirit of each animal. I will also include other aspects such as the animal walks and meditations. You are welcome to join this series even if you haven’t done the previous one. We will play with the animals in the following order: tiger, deer, bear, bird, monkey.
Thursday mornings 10.30-12
Qi ball gestures, movements and meditations. The Qi ball practices increase our Qi capacity, build resilience and stamina, and open our sensitivity to Qi. At the deepest level the Qi ball practices connect us to source and we can enter a state of profound peace and aliveness.
£3-10. Open to anyone.
Thursday evening 7.30-8.30pm
June 18 The Organs. This weeks session will complete our work with the five yin organ movements, their associated sounds and mudras.

Saturday July 4th 10-4pm

During the class it is important that you keep your video off to reduce bandwidth. You will be muted automatically. Set your screen to “speaker view” and you will see me. At the end of the class you can turn audio and video on for feedback and discussion.
Classes are set up on a sliding scale and you are invited to pay what you can afford. My preferred method is payment by BACS. Please email me for my account details. Alternatively, if you have an account, you can pay by PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unable to pay at this stage because of Covid I am happy for you to join anyway and to receive the class as a supportive gift. Wishing you strong Qi and resilience during these extraordinary times.
