Target Audience: All staff involved in delivering and supporting learning and teaching
Part of the Keeping well, Teaching well series, this session will support participants to explore the practice of Qigong. Led by an experienced Qigong teacher, we will discuss the benefits of using this practice to support wellbeing and consider if there are aspects that you can incorporate into your learning and teaching practice. The session will include an opportunity to try a Qigong practice to consider if it is something you could incorporate into your own individual wellbeing plan.
Qigong is an authentic, popular system of exercise from China. It utilises stretching movements combined with breathing techniques and focus of the mind to strengthen and circulate life energy (qi) within the body. Qigong practice can lead to better health and vitality, improved posture and flexibility and a tranquil state of mind.
Michaela Sinclair has practised tai chi and qigong for many years and has travelled to China numerous times to study and qualify under the Chinese Health Qigong Association in Beijing.
