Free Qi Gong Taster Session

Tuesday 6th December| 2:30pm until 3:30pm | In Centre


Mike Hall invites you to a free taster Qi Gong class. Come along and get the chance to find out if Qi Gong is for you.

Mike will be offering weekly Qi Gong classes in 2023. If you’ve never heard of it, Qi Gong is a form of gentle exercise with numerous health benefits. Mike has been practising Qi Gong for over 20 years. 

Join us for a festive time in our Tearoom after the class where Mike will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about this ancient martial art. 

This class will be limited to 12 attendees. 

The Art and Science of Qi Gong

Regular practice of Qi Gong will develop your tendon power. Tendons recycle energy and can be thought of as robust rubber bands. They absorb energy, stretch and then whip back – a process known as ‘elastic recoil.’

Most of us, through sedentary lifestyles, have underdeveloped tendons. This makes controlled and balanced movement almost impossible to achieve.

The more we develop our tendons, the more we unite and connect our body and allow our various body parts to function together as one harmonious unit.

Through consistent practice over a long period of time, you will be able to condition your tendons. Once sufficiently strengthened, your tendons will maintain their cultivated strength.

Join Mike Hall for Qi Gong and discover how you can permanently improve your health and wellbeing.
