Qigong (pronounced chee gung) is an ancient Chinese health care system that combines physical postures and breathing techniques: it means ‘vital energy (Qi) cultivation (Gong)’.
In accordance with Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi flow and balance are at the root of all health conditions. When the balance of Qi is disrupted, ailments and illness occur; when the balance is restored, health is re-established. Working through gentle exercise with Qi will help accelerate healing, slow ageing, relieve stress and enhance learning.
I have been practising Qigong since 2002, qualifying as an instructor in February 2009. I run regular classes and workshops around Derbyshire and Staffordshire, and was a tutor for both Age UK and Derbyshire charity First Taste, working with older adults of all abilities from 2008 to 2018. I also provide self-care one-to-one support for carers in Derby, working with Creative Carers.
I am the Qigong teacher at Ashbourne Physiotherapy Centre and hold fortnightly classes at the Foxlowe Arts Centre in Leek. I am also an approved Strictly No Falling (falls prevention) tutor.
In addition, I also offer private one-to-one sessions in Qigong, meditation and therapeutic healing.
