Take advantage of this unique and rare opportunity to learn the ancient art of Qigong along with a complete introduction to the philosophy and application of Traditional Chinese Medicine and its effectiveness in increasing longer life.
What is Qigong?
Developed over 5000 years ago, Qigong is an ancient system of movement and breath exercises that cultivates peak physical health and peace of mind. It is officially known in China as the science of human potential and development.
Qigong practice opens our innate ability to heal, reduces stress and helps us reach our maximum human potential. Regular practice helps increase muscle tone and flexibility, as well as cultivates a sense of free-flowing energy in the body and enhances our connection to nature.
White Tiger Qigong combines the innovations of sports science and fascia research with Chinese medicine to create a contemporary take on an ancient mind-body practice.
What is 5 Element Qigong?
The 5 Element Qigong system includes five powerful forms, named after five powerful animals: Dragon, Tiger, Leopard, Snake and Crane; Qigong meditation, deep Qigong breathing techniques and a strong, focused spirit. Each animal form works to heal and bring into balance the internal organs and the meridians of the body.
5 Element Qigong is a powerful form that goes dynamically deep like no other Qigong. This is characterized by deep, strong stances, coupled with deep twists, long slow breaths, with special breath holding techniques while in the peak of the posture. This Qigong works by squeezing out toxins and emotions out of the organs like a sponge, then dynamically stretching the body to open the area up leaving you feeling peaceful, relaxed and focused.
The workshop will be a combination of Qigong Theory and Practice taught to a small group of students to ensure lots of personal attention! Join me for this fusion of ageless wisdom with modern science that gives us the best of both worlds.

My journey into the energy practices began long time ago. I think the awareness and some understanding of energy has been with me my entire life, leading me to where I have come already and where I’m going to still arrive. This has been a truly wonderful path, and one of the highlights of it was Qigong, an ancient Chinese practice that I have been learning, practicing and teaching since 2016. Qigong has brought many amazing things into my life and made some transformative changes. It lets me feel connection throughout my entire body, connection to myself and to the world around me; feel the energy flow and create this flow. Qigong is much more than just a physical movement, it is a spiritual practice that focuses on health and wellbeing and brings peace of mind. I’m very much looking forward to sharing this sacred knowledge with you during this workshop.
