Qi Gong encompasses physical movements which lay the foundation for learning Tai Chi and Ba Gua. The movements can be very simple or incredibly complex but the efficiency of Qi Gong taps into the natural design of the body. This efficiency firstly stabilises then develops a healthy and resilient body. Qi Gong can be practised by any age group, by any body type and any ability.
Qi Gong is a generic term that encompasses Qi Gong, Nei Gong and Shen Gong.
Qi Gong translates as energy work whereby chi is moved via the breath and the movement of the hands.
Nei Gong translates as internal work, chi is moved by a direct connection with the mind. The process of connecting with the three major energy centre's starts.

Ba Gua is the physical manifestation of the I -Ching and involves rapid walking in a circle whilst frequently changing direction. The strong lengthening and twisting of the soft tissues of the body furthers the process of internal connection that the Qi Gong exercises initiate.
