Qigong Learning

Highland Healing Space is offering a very comprehensive Qigong curriculum. From very easy to access qigong to stimulate body function and movement to more involved qigong where you learn to work with Chi inside and out! 

Our classes are developed so that most people can access them, although we do advise you to check with us first if you have particular aches and pains or are recovering from injury even if it was a while ago. 

At present we have 2 regular classes per week, one which comprises easier movement based practise and another class which generally has more demanding movements. 

Generally movements are able to be adjusted for particular injuries or physical limitations.

Of course we do not just offer movement based qigong, we also offer meditation and breath based work as well as getting to know your chi and chi in general!

Just now we are running our Meditation and moving energy course, and we will run more of those in the future. These sessions enable you to access qigong even if movement is very limited and also if you wish to dive into working with the energetic component more.

Qigong is an age old Chinese practice designed too preserve health and wellbeing and increase longevity!

When working with qigong little by little you build the ‘gong’ part which is the work/effort part of qigong and which affords you the benefits of the practice. 

For movement based Qigong 

 you slowly work to integrate the movements in your body and then integrate the breath and intention.

From easy movements such as 5 waves to much more involved movements such as wild animal play.

For meditation based Qigong

The work with breath and feeling Chi is more accentuated and worked in a more obvious manner. 

We then feel this into the body. Whether we are working with the dantien or the meridian system, we slowly develop a feel and understanding of how Qi works.

 

Our regular classes are on Wednesdays at 10am in person for 1 hour, at Kenneth Street Hall, Inverness and on Zoom on Thursdays at 10am.
