Hi there, welcome to my site!
We offer bespoke training in Chinese originated arts of Qi Gong and Tai Chi. We offer group classes and one to one training.
Hun Yuan Qi gong
Qigong is an essential part of the practice of tai chi – indeed some may argue it is the most important ingredient in practicing tai chi for health.
Master Ma teaches a set of ancient qigong practices that are an essential aid in keeping the body and mind healthy. THese exercises can be practiced by anyone and just a few minutes a day can make a difference.
Qigong works on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is in fact practiced as part of mainstream medicine in China today. Often qigong is practiced in hospitals as an aid to recuperation.
Standing Qi Gong
Master Ma Standing
'Qi Gong' can be translated as 'energy work', a new term from the 50's which has come to embody a long history of gentle exercises which over time create a strong and flexible body structure. I have been involved in Qi gong practice for the last ten years, and have trained with many highly respected teachers. Much of my Qi Gong and Tai Chi knowledge comes from Master Ma Bao taught to me by Linage holder Chris Ray Chappell.
Master Ma Bo & Chris Chappell
The Hun Yuan form uses spiraling movements to better understand body mechanics and structural alignments, with the aim of creating freedom of movement and internal space.
Notes on Tai Chi/Qi Gong
Qi gong works on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is in fact practiced as part of mainstream medicine in China today. Often qi gong is practiced in hospitals as an aid to recuperation.
The exercises themselves take the form of usually simple body movements, done slowly and in complete relaxation along with various breathing methods. There is nothing mystical or magical about these exercises - they just work!
Although it is possible to learn these exercises from words and pictures it is advisable to train with a teacher.
