“Qi Gong improves quality of life and helps you to find greater happiness. It is not only a matter of adding years to your life, but life to your years.” Kenneth Cohen
What is Qi Gong?
Qi Gong is “an ancient Chinese system of exercise and meditation that makes the mind and spirit tranquil, improves performance in sports, such as martial arts, and cultivates health, well-being, and long life.” (Kenneth Cohen)
It’s also called Chinese yoga, and there are some similarities with yoga, but the movements are simple and easy to do, more similar to the ones in Tai Chi. This 4000 years old, ancient Chinese practise focuses on the energy of your body, physical, emotional and spiritual to gain control over your Life Force Energy/Qi/Chi to enhance your quality of life.
There are thousands of different schools of Qi Gong. They all fall in 3 different categories:
- Martial Art Qi Gong
- Medical Qi Gong
- Spiritual Qi Gong
I combine the latter two in the 1 to 1 sessions and workshops I hold.

How does Qi Gong for Health work?
It re-establishes the Mind, Body & Soul Connection by creating an awareness of and influences the dimensions of your being that are not part of traditional exercises. It works with your meridian lines & Dan Tien system (another energy system in your being), incorporates intent, affirmations & breathing techniques. When these dimensions are added they exponentially increase the benefits of the exercises creating a positive outlook on your life and a balanced life style….
