The Green Witchery

In the graceful movements of Qi-Gong,

we synchronize breath and energy, awakening our inner strength. Through this union, of the mind, body, and soul we discover harmony, guiding us towards profound peace.

Qigong is a Chinese system of holistic health that roots back five thousand years.

“Energy cultivation” is an excellent translation for Qigong, because it conveys the idea that, just as an agricultural field is cultivated with careful tending over time to produce food, your own field of life energy is cultivated so that your body and mind are nourished.

Qigong brings body, breathing and mind together to perform movements and hold postures that exercise the whole person. While usually performed standing, it can also be performed seated. Although most Qigong is characterised by slow, flowing movements, it can also be still, as well as more energetic and active.

Qigong is a mind body movement practice which is over 5000 years old, and is being “rediscovered” by the West as one of the most effective ways to harmonise our body, synchronise our nervous system, prevent aging and create strength, energy, and suppleness, as well as cultivating a calm, focused mind.

Many modern inflammatory health conditions, such as fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, stress, anxiety, hormonal issues, back pain and many other diseases can be managed and brought into a state of balance with Qigong.

.

There are literally thousands of different qi gong styles. Which is why you will see it written in so many different ways (Qi Gong, Qigong, Chi Gong, Chi Kung), and every teacher will have different styles and forms.

 

The art of Qigong is an effective method of reducing stress and promoting a relaxed body and calm mind. It increases flexibility, strength, balance and general wellbeing. Many people have found that Qigong practice brings youthful vitality and a positive outlook to their lives.

Did you know that our bodies are designed to work in harmony with the seasons? And that each season has its own energy? By aligning our energy with each season we can be in the flow, feeling more vital, and alive, calmer and in balance and more connected to ourselves and the world around us.

AUTUMN

Qigong and autumn intertwine in a dance of balance and transition as nature prepares for the coming season of rest and introspection. The energy of the earth begins to draw inward, we release stagnant Qi and emotions, promoting clarity of mind and emotional resilience.

WINTER

Qigong and winter offer a profound opportunity for inner cultivation and nourishment during the season of stillness and introspection. As the world outside quiets down and retreats into dormancy, winter invites us to turn inward and replenish our energy reserves.
