Sometimes we all need to refresh what we have learned and enjoy returning to the academy to gain some personal tuition and ask our own questions to build our understanding

You can always return to learn additional Qigong sets but sometimes we just need a day, or two, to enjoy and explore what we have already learned

You will always learn more when attending a refresher module

You will attend with more experience which often leads to a deeper layer of understanding

 QIGONG  IMMERSION 

EXPERIENCE

As Session Leaders we are always delivering sessions and rarely get to enjoy a session for ourselves

This qigong immersion is all about you, not as a Session Leader, but a chance for you to lose yourself within the flow and experience the session for yourself

This is an opportunity for you to be guided through the 18 Shibashi Set 1 movements and enjoy the time and space to immerse yourself, allowing you to reach your full potential, physically and energetically, for each movement.

You will gain a deeper understanding through your own experience, and enjoy this at your own pace

You will go through a deep cleansing, healing and restoring process

Saturday

A gentle supportive full day session experience

Sunday

Allows time to revisit & reflect giving your body the opportunity to absorb and embed the experience
