Qigong is the powerful ancient Chinese practice of cultivating qi, or life force. Using the power of breath, plus gentle body movements, self-applied massage and meditations, Qigong harnesses and directs Qi to promote harmonious flow of energy throughout the body.

Michelle’s Qigong classes are suitable for all abilities and many practices can be adapted to a seated position if there are pain or mobility challenges. Often she will explore Qigong in relation to current seasonal cycles or the 5 elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine to optimise flow of qi and offer a holistic connection to your practice. She lovingly brings her personal experience, along with many years of study and clinical experience to guide students into a deeper connection with body, mind and spirit.

Pronounced “chee gong”, Qigong is an easy to use, ancient Chinese self-practice that rebalances body, mind and spirit.

“Qi” means life force, breath, energy, consciousness and the essence behind all living things. “Gong” roughly translates as cultivation, skill, practice, mastery. So “Qi Gong” is a way of working with the energy of life.

Qi flows through the body’s energy channels and meridians, connecting us with the energy of the universe. Through our own qi pathways, we can use Qigong to plug directly into the life force that runs our bodies and the entire universe.  When qi is flowing smoothly, we are healthy. When the flow of qi is blocked or out of balance, energy throughout the body can stagnate or be impeded, causing dysfunction in organs and systems. Qigong promotes smooth flow of energy, encouraging regulation of blood flow, cleansing the body of toxins, reducing stress and improving energy levels.

Qigong primarily consists of physical movement, meditation, and breathing exercises. Today there are thousands of different styles of Qi Gong, either done standing, moving, walking, sitting or lying.
