Chinese Health Exercises, known as Qi Gong (pronounced ‘Chi Gong’), have been practiced by people from all aspects of Chinese society for thousands of years. From martial artists and spiritual practitioners to those just looking to maintain or improve their health, Qi Gong has provided, when practiced properly, a safe and enjoyable way to stretch, tone and strengthen the body. Qi Gong gives those willing to practice the tools to improve their physical and mental health wellbeing. It is suitable for all people of all ages and its practices can be adjusted to match an individuals’ own body limitations. The key difference between Qi Gong and most other forms of exercise is the intimate connection created between the practitioners mind, breath and body during practice. Refining our posture, alignments and breathing allows the practitioner to draw energy (Qi) from the surrounding environment and circulate this more efficiently around the body to improve our health. A deeper awareness of our own body leads to a greater understanding of relaxation so often missing in our busy daily lives.
Sifu Marcus Watts has studied Qi Gong with a variety of different teachers and is now a student and qualified Qi Gong/Nei Gong teacher under the Lotus Nei Gong School of Daoist Arts.
