Join us for a live tutorial of this easy to follow physical and spiritual routine of an ancient Chinese exercise!
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.
In collaboration with experienced Qigong and Tai Chi instructor Dr Amily Wang Guenier, 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.
