‘Qi’ roughly translates to ‘Vital energies’ and ‘Gong’ to ‘Cultivation’ and is more simply described as a Chinese style of gentle yoga. Medical Qigong is one of the 5 types of Chinese medicine and is over 2000 years old.
In this morning class, we will be learning a series of transformative healing movements to nourish your body, calm your mind and energise your spirit!

Suggested donation: $10
All Sessions by Dana (donation).
Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The teachings flourish in an atmosphere of generosity and gratitude, and these qualities in turn support the growth of wisdom and compassion in the practitioner. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a specified fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course (e.g., administrative & venue costs).
