Labour Weekend

Qi Gong (pronounced chi kung) is an ancient Chinese practice of gentle movement, breathing exercises, standing postures and meditation to work skillfully with your life force energy, with the internal power that animates all physical functions, your emotions, and your mind.

Becoming expert at working with your own internal energy gives you the resources to have choices and to manifest the kind of day, and the kind of life that you want to have.

We will practice & explore natural ways to increase vitality, elevate emotions, turn stress into relaxation, balance our nervous system, feel inspired, have a calm clear mind, feel the connection with the natural world and with others.

Qi Gong is easy to learn and enjoyable to do. The movements are slow, flowing, rhythmic, accessible, and practical. Even after a short amount of practice, you can already feel the benefits.

This retreat is suitable for people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, for anyone interested in learning the beauty, effectiveness, simplicity and power of Qi Gong.
