Until restrictions on movement and meeting are lifted and we can return to face to face Qigong classes I will be 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.
I am pleased with how well Qigong teaching can work online. It’s very simple as a user and most people reported feeling a strong connection to the Qi and to the group (myself included!).
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. In this series we will learn the deer, monkey, tiger, bird and bear forms. The animal forms differ somewhat in various Qigong styles but in essence these practices are all ways of tuning into the powers embodied in each animal. They are the first ever recorded Qigong forms. The animal forms are very enlivening, strengthening for the physical body and, at heart, very playful. Come and play!
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
Five organ exercises. In this class we will learn a set of five movements for the five “yin” organs: the spleen, lung, kidney, liver and heart. Each movement is designed to strengthen and enliven its associated organ and, when practiced as a set, to balance the energy of the whole system. The whole set can be performed in twenty five minutes.

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.
