Qigong
BODY, BREATH & MIND

Welcome to Qigong

Qigong (pronounced chee gong) is a time-tested Chinese practice which blends movement, mindful absorption and deep, slow breathing. The term qigong is made up of two characters. Qi is often translated as energy or life and Gong means skill. So qigong could be said to be training in the skill of living.

Qigong needs no special equipment or special clothes, is free, and can be practised by anybody, anywhere - from a mountain top to a bedroom. Its aim is better health, longer life, connection to something greater than ourselves and effective and compassionate action in the world. It can enhance every single aspect of our lives. 

I offer a variety of free and paid qigong courses, live classes and workshops, and – coming in early 2024 - my new book ‘Qigong: Cultivating body, breath & mind’ (see below) comes with links to 42 instructional videos.

Qigong: Cultivating body, breath & mind

Two years in the writing, this new book covers the underlying philosophies and history of the many Chinese practices that come under the broad umbrella term qigong. It draws both on the traditional wisdom and modern understanding of body, breath and mind cultivation. There are links to dozens of videos demonstrating a whole range of qigong practices.
