QI GONG in Royston
We now have a successful Qi Gong group meeting weekly on Thursday nights, and some Saturday nights, too. During the summer, we will meet on the Heath (with a break for most of August though). Please read below and send me a note if you would like to come alone - new members always welcome!
WHAT IS QI GONG
Qi Gong is a Chinese form of exercise - Meditation in Movement. The words mean “gathering energy” or “gathering air”, In China, it is practised by martial artists as well as those in rehabilitation after a major illness or surgery. It is similar(-ish) to Taiji, but has less choreography, as Taiji originated as a martial art, while qi gong is meant for health and strength. A Taiji master will practise qi gong as well!
