He opened his Medical Qigong and Chinese Manual Therapy practice in 2008 and we are delighted he is once again joining us in New Plymouth to further enhance our own knowledge and enjoyment of Qigong and Tai Chi.

The Mawangdui Daoyin Qigong will be featured during the Saturday classes - this is a series of qigong movements based on those shown on the famous silk paintings excavated from the Mawangdui tombs of Changsha, Hunan Province, China. Dating from the Han Dynasty, these easy-to-learn movements work with the flow of vital energy through the meridians and enourage connection between the external movements of the body and the internal activity of the mind.

This practice includes step-by-step, full instruction on the Mawangdui Daoyin Shu with additional learning tips for each movement, and information on the health benefits.

Our workshop weekend offers an exciting and health promoting programme suitable for beginners to the advanced student so pop these dates in your diary now and pick up a registration form at your next class or email for a copy.
