Tai Chi Qigong, Downton

Based on 'Qigong Shibashi', which means 18 movements, this drop-in class allows anyone interested in understanding more about Tai Chi principles to join in, without the committment of a regular class. With their roots in Tai Chi, these calming and enjoyable movements are very much simpler to follow than the traditional forms but still offer many of the benefits.

The flowing movements are done to relaxing music, are simple to copy and are repeated with the instructor, so you don't have to remember a lot of instructions and sequence. This has the advantage that you won't get left behind if you can't come every week. The movements can help improve balance, flexibility, memory and general well-being through releasing stress and tension.

Suitable for complete beginners - you won't know how nice it is until you try it!

45 minutes of gentle exercise. Cost £6, which can also be done seated.

Individual Price £6.00

Autumn Qigong - Downton

Five Seasons Qigong: Autumn Gathering

We continue our popular series of 'immersion' weekend workshops that span the year and its seasons. Discover and embody ancient practices that were created to naturally resonate with the energies of the Earth through its annual cycle.

In autumn the predominant element is Metal. This element is also related to minerals that are born out of the earth and infuses life to water as it flows over the ground - hence metal gives birth to water (the winter element). The two systems in the body that are most strongly activated at this time are the lungs and the large intestine. Both organs have the function of gathering in what is essential and of letting go of what is not needed.

Sat (10am to 4.30pm) / Sun (10am to 1pm). Cost £70 for both days / £35 for the Sat Morning session only.

On Sunday we offer an in-depth workshop where you can deepen your study, as well as review and practice what we learn on the Saturday - see details. You do not have to attend this session but it is included in the price.
