How magical would it be to have the key to even greater health and wellness with qigong? Absolutely, you too can enter this enchanted place.
At this retreat, you will learn the 12 Rivers Qigong Programme. This is a series of moving qigong and tai chi exercises, which encourage you to move every part of your body. Your neck, shoulders, elbows, wrist, hips, knees, ankles, and back will all become more free as you practice. And what’s more, you’ll do this gently and slowly. There is no pushing or straining. Each time you do the exercises you will naturally move further into your range or motion, making your movements freer and your body more flexible.
The movements are co-ordinated with your breath and awareness of energy in your body. Slowing down, relaxing, deepening your breath, and gently moving your body to release tensions naturally reduces stress. You will find yourself calmer and more at ease.
Each movement massages one of your internal organs and stimulates the 12 related acupuncture meridians. These meridians flow like rivers of energy through your body, hence the name 12 Rivers Qigong.
The 12 Rivers Qigong Programme can give you an energy boost and help you to balance your posture, emotions and organ functions. When completed in the right sequence, the movements can have incredible health benefits for the body and mind.
This retreat is for anyone aged 18+ who is seeking to vastly improve their own health, self-healing and well-being and/or wants to de-stress and have a better life/work balance.
