Following Nature’s rhythms, Winter is the right time to slow down and preserve your inner Life force (Qi). Thanks to ancient practices handed down through centuries, you will learn how to take care of yourself and allow both your body and mind to recharge, and to welcome a new Spring along with its rebirth, its creativity and challenges.
Breathing for the treatment of the body: how such a basic gesture can do this? Qigong (pronounced “chi kun” ) will take you back to the roots of existence, re-educating your body to breathe properly in order to re-establish a correct equilibrium. Qigong is considered the foundation for disease prevention and global body strengthening, through a series of slow and harmonious postures that bring vigor and well-being to all organs.
ABOUT SHAOLIN MONK STRETCHING
Too often underrated, Stretching is that ingredient in life – whether it be sedentary or active – that cannot be left out from our daily tasks, as it is basically responsible for preventing injuries and reducing recovery times, in case you are leading an active lifestyle.
Shaolin Monk Stretching takes advantage of the relaxation gained from Qigong and merges it with the well known benefits of Stretching, making it the ultimate flexibility and relaxation combo. This art form is part of the curriculum of Shaolin Kung Fu.
