QIGONG is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. It creates an awareness of and influences dimensions of our being that are not part of traditional exercise programs.

The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system.

ZHINENG QIGONG is a medical system of qigong developed by Dr. Ming Pang in the 1970s and 1980s as a synthesis of many ancient lineages of Chinese healing practices. This style of qigong was originally developed for use in the world’s largest Chinese "medicine-less hospital", and is now practiced widely throughout the world. The style employs a comprehensive system of qigong movement, meditation, visualisation, sound vibration healing, chanting, and spiritual awareness techniques for healing.

I have been practicing various forms of Qigong for over twenty years. During this time Qigong has helped me to restore my health and inner calm in times of stress and illness and has aided me in finding a perspective on life's many challenges and difficulties.

I came across Zhineng Qigong in 2015 and have been concentrating on this particular form ever since.

Following two retreats led by Chinese teachers from the Zhineng School in China, I enrolled with the Three Monkeys School of Qigong's Teacher Training Programme. See:

These introductory workshops form part of my on-going training.
