Tai Chi and Daoyin, which is also known as Qigong have become very popular in the western world due to their many health benefits. These gentle and flowing movements are a very effective way of keeping fit and strengthen the internal body defence system whilst at the same time helping to reduce stress levels.
We will be joined by Feixia Yu, who has been running regular tai chi classes and well-being workshops for many years to talk about traditional Chinese health practices that are based on the two fundamental principles of yin and yang. Feixia will explore how the six healing sounds correspond to a specific organ and put those theories into practice by demonstrating some typical Daoyin moves that can be practised by absolutely everyone!
