The Body, is a Portal to Presence

Qigong is rooted in the cultivation of Qi, the development of embodiment and the cultivation of mind clarity. During practice we focus on physical postures, fluid movements and coordinated breathing, connecting the intention of the mind with the actions of the body. This emphasis on conscious movement and breath awareness helps us develop a deep connection with the body. By attuning to the subtle sensations, energy flow and alignment of the body, Qigong facilitates an embodied experience, promoting a deeper understanding and connection with the physical self.

Qigong is naturally focused on the present. Attention becomes naturally anchored in the present moment by synchronising movement with breathing and by concentrating on physical experiences. Through consistent practice, individuals can experience a sense of harmony, alignment, and a deeper connection with their authentic self. The holistic integration of movement, breathing and attention in Qigong promotes a sense of inner calm, balance and vitality. This attunement to one's internal rhythm and the flow of Qi encourages a deep sense of Being, a state in which one experiences a deeper connection with one's true nature and the essence of life.

Qigong is not something you do. It's a way of life. The more you can translate your practice into daily life. The more Qigong it  will encompass your entire life.
