What it is: This group will use the practice of movements guided by the breath for the purpose of mental, physical and emotional well-being, following the traditions of Tai- Chi /Qi Gong as a skillful application of mindfulness.
When it is: Weekly on Thursdays, 10am – 11.30am during term times.
Where it is: Weekly on Zoom, with monthly outdoor meet ups at Ardagh Community Centre, Horfield Common, BS6 7YL. If weather or regulations do not permit meeting up we will revert to an on-line session.
Qi Gong (translated as‘Energy Practice’) is a great form of exercise - beneficial in developing balance, co-ordination, flexibility and cardiovascular and neurological health. Because the movements are gentle and easy to perform, they can be performed by people of all ages who want to maintain their physical capabilities.
The core components of most Qi Gong practices, whether gentle or vigorous, are the mind, the body, and the breath. By harnessing these three together, we can work effectively with our energy. The use of these three components together sometimes leads Qi gong to be compared to other mind/body practices such as yoga and Tai Chi.
We will be sharing series of exercises that can be developed at home with the help of video links and occasional handouts.
