Time & Location
About the Event
Take advantage of this unique and rare opportunity to learn the ancient art of Qigong along with a complete introduction to the philosophy and application of Traditional Chinese Medicine and its effectiveness in increasing longer life.
What is Qigong?
Developed over 5000 years ago, Qigong is an ancient system of movement and breath exercises that cultivates peak physical health and peace of mind. It is officially known in China as the science of human potential and development.
Qigong practice opens our innate ability to heal, reduces stress and helps us reach our maximum human potential. Regular practice helps increase muscle tone and flexibility, as well as cultivates a sense of free-flowing energy in the body and enhances our connection to nature.
White Tiger Qigong combines the innovations of sports science and fascia research with Chinese medicine to create a contemporary take on an ancient mind-body practice.
What is 5 Animal Qigong?
5 Animal Qigong is the oldest known dynamic Medical Qigong system, created by Hua Tuo (110- 207 BC), who was one of the most famous Chinese Medicine doctors in history. It is the most dynamic of all forms, in that not only are we utilizing various stances and movements, but it is also continuously walking.
The five animals each have a different character and spirit which, when practiced together, will create a unique and balanced flow. The Tiger should be practiced as if untamed and powerful, while the Deer should be light and graceful. The Bear should feel heavy, solid and grounded, whereas the Monkey should feel agile and playful. Finally, when practicing the Crane, you should feel as if you are flying.
This complete system of Qigong, when practiced regularly, will help you develop grace, agility, strength, balance, and a lighter heart.
The workshop will be a combination of Qigong Theory and Practice taught to a small group of students to ensure lots of personal attention! Join me for this fusion of ageless wisdom with modern science that gives us the best of both worlds.

My journey into the energy practices began long time ago. I think the awareness and some understanding of energy has been with me my entire life, leading me to where I have come already and where I’m going to still arrive. This has been a truly wonderful path, and one of the highlights of it was Qigong, an ancient Chinese practice that I have been learning, practicing and teaching since 2016. Qigong has brought many amazing things into my life and made some transformative changes. It lets me feel connection throughout my entire body, connection to myself and to the world around me; feel the energy flow and create this flow. Qigong is much more than just a physical movement, it is a spiritual practice that focuses on health and wellbeing and brings peace of mind. I’m very much looking forward to sharing this sacred knowledge with you during this workshop.
