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 8Trigram Qigong?
The 8 Trigram Organ Qigong differs significantly from other styles of Qigong, as it is a smoothly flowing Qigong. Every Qigong movement is designed to be chain-linked to the next. 8 Trigram Qigong offers a more gentle and smooth massage of the organs through rhythmic, flowing movements. It focuses mostly on the core of the body, bowing the spine in just about every direction possible. There is a big emphasis on simultaneously wringing out the meridians of the arms and using the legs as a strong root into the earth.
Practitioners report that after completing a session of 8 Trigram Qigong, they feel a smoothness, softness and relaxed sensation deep in the core of their body like never before.

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.
