Qigong for Health
Our MODERN approach views Qigong (Chi Kung)
NOT as some mystical practice or cult imported from China,
but as ANY form of focussed exercise and controlled breathing training
to work and develop skill through energy
in order to promote better health and wellbeing.
Our Gentle Way of practising Qigong (Chi Kung)
assists in all aspects of participating in Tai Chi Qigong class
in learning strategies of relaxing and
ENCHANCING the POWER OF THE MIND.
The spelling Tai Chi and Chi Kung is the Wades Giles and
Taijiquan and Qigong is the so-called phonetic Pinyin spelling.
Gentle Way of Chi Kung
The efficient use of energy combined with an effective way of learning any martial form, movement, sequence or application whether for health, relaxation or self-defence. The heuristic mirror-method of learning, teaching and practicing generally is examined and provides the rationale for what is described here as Tai Chi Chi Kung Freestyle Form, as a non-standard form or sequence of movements as a means to create an awareness that focused practice does not have to rely on remembering a specific choreographed sequence such as the standard form, kata, pattern or routine in any martial art.

Hooked on Speed
Don’t be a slave to any predetermined sequence.
Let the freestyle sequence of slow and controlled deflect anxiety and stress,
training your mind to find a rhythm and pattern that neutralizes anger and pain
reflected in the rear-view mirror of life.
Be motivated through the discipline of sustained effort, drills, repetition with focussed practice,
don’t become a victim to rage in life or on the road and hooked on speed.
Go with the flow, more power to you!!
