Somatic Qi Gong: Balancing the Body


Keep your nervous system resilient and balanced in the demanding climate we currently face. Consciously make your default state relaxed, calm and peaceful.

These 1.5 hr sessions are a unique mix of qi gong, yoga, circle work and somatic movements that will focus on:

  • Building nervous resilience with feeling & sensing
  • The mental and physical health benefits of practicing Qi Gong
  • Creating whole body health and vitality using fundamental Qi Gong exercises.
  • The somatic balancing of yin and yang energies.
  • The internal energetics associated with the choreography of Qi Gong

The slow & mindful movement of these classes, coupled with the breath, is an excellent way to develop interoception. Interoception is the ability to sense your inner world. With interoception your mental and physical resilience can improve markedly. Resilience comes when we don’t get stuck in worry, stress, and resistance, as we consciously return to balanced, calm states.

These classes will ideally involve gentle partner work to develop haptic sensitivity and investigate the nexus between our proprioceptive and interoceptive feelings (COVID regulations may impact this).

Learn to centre yourself and default to a calm relaxed body and mind state.
