Qi (pronounced chee) is life force and gong means work in Chinese. Qigong are gentle exercises that combine breath with movement, helping to calm the mind and regulate the qi in the meridians or acupuncture channels of the body.

It is a system practiced to maintain health, promote healing and increase vitality. With regular, focused practice, the gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong can:

  • reduce stress & hypertension
  • build stamina
  • increase vitality
  • enhance the immune system
  • improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions
  • maintain health and reduce the incidence of falling in older people
  • help speed recovery from illness
  • encourage a positive outlook through body/mind/spirit connection.

This class forms part of Better You 2024, a programme of events focusing on health, wellbeing and learning new skills. We’re inviting Banksiders to join us in starting the new year in a positive way.
