Testimonials:

"Learning Qigong with Anna has been a pleasure. She made me feel comfortable from the moment I entered the room and her teaching style put me at ease straight away. The progressive sessions are enjoyable and relaxing and Anna’s guidance has enabled me to practice at home with confidence. Qigong provides me with a centred, calm mind and body and I can highly recommend Anna’s class for anyone looking to bring a little tranquility into their life". Sam (Business Owner)

"I have been attending Qigong Shibashi classes with Anna for a number of months now and have found them to be a great form of gentle but rewarding exercise. Anna is a great teacher and is very patient and takes time to explain the moves to a beginner like me. I have back pain and arthritis in my ankle and the classes have been helpful for both. Qigong provides an energy boost and at the same time mental relaxation and I look forward to learning the new moves each class. I would highly recommend a class with Anna". David (Operations Manager)

 

What is Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi? 

History:

Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi is a set of Qigong exercises based on the philosophy of Tai Chi and extracts some of the best movements from the Yang style Tai Chi Chuan. Shibashi literally means 18 movements and is one of the most popular Qigong forms in the world. Shibashi is a gentle flowing form of exercise that was developed in 1979 by Professor Li Hou-Sheng, a renowned Qigong master and traditional Chinese medical practitioner. Shibashi refines the essence and movements of Tai Chi into a set that is quick and easy to learn and is practised around the world by over 10 million people.

Benefits:

The 18 Shibashi exercises are designed to improve the general health and wellbeing of the practitioner, by providing a gentle physical and mental workout for the body and mind. The gentle rocking motions and stretching movements improve circulation and digestion. The chest exercises and controlled breathing are good for lung conditions and asthma. The overall effect is to reduce mental stress and physical tension, hence cultivating relaxation and energy.

Shibashi takes approximately 10 weeks to learn, after which time you can practise on your own with continued health benefits or keep practising in a group/class setting.
