Join us for a live tutorial of this easy to follow physical and spiritual routine of an ancient Chinese exercise!
Last November, we held a Zoom exercise class introducing the 8 Brocades of Qigong and learned how to carry out 4 out of the 8 movements. In this class we will focus on learning the remaining 4 movements and their benefits for body and mind.
Qigong, also known as Chinese yoga is a gentle form of exercise that strengthens the internal body defence system and can be practised by absolutely everyone! Based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, these eight silken movements are a perfect way to start your day during these dark winter months.
Since the Coronavirus outbreak back in February, Manchester Confucius Institute has introduced new ways for people to engage with Chinese language and culture with an emphasis on supporting physical and mental wellbeing by introducing traditional Chinese wellness practices. The institute developed a series of short video tutorials demonstrating the 8 Brocades of Qigong in English. If you enjoy this Zoom exercise class, we will make sure to share the link to the video tutorials afterwards, so you can repeat this in your own time and on a more regular basis.
