Always wanted to try Qigong?
You can because 8 January 2023 I will start a new beginners' group in an indoor location in Rotterdam Kralingen.

Some advance information
Qigong literally means working with life energy and works through movement, breathing, concentration and self-massage. Through Qigong, one can learn to cultivate and master this life energy, or Qi. The goal is for the Qi to flow freely in the body, bringing preventive and curative health benefits. The changes due to Qigong are often noticed first physically and later also mentally.

Qigong learning
Qigong learning is done incrementally. The main emphasis during class is on feeling the body. In daily life, we spend most of our time 'in our heads', which in itself is not a problem. However, for many people it is often difficult to perceive the body. Many physical discomforts or even diseases stem from the inability of this feeling. It can be an enriching experience to become more aware of the body and the interaction it has with our mind.

Supporting theory
To support practice, I provide information by email/whatsapp before or after class about what we did or covered. If you decide to come and train more often, you will also get access to the members' area of the website with exercises and tips for clarification.

Tips for training
For class, wear easy and loose-fitting clothes. Dress in layers so you can take something on or off. During the workout, you may feel heat or get cold. Preferably wear flat shoes without a heel. This makes it easier to recognise and feel your own centre of gravity, which improves balance.

It can be very easy to make a video to practise at home. It helped me myself to remember it that way. My own teacher then always filmed myself and did not allow himself to be filmed. I use that method too. I am happy to help make a good video.

Interested in attending?
Then contact me by phone/whatsapp or email. I will then provide some additional information and the exact training location.

Scheduled days are:
08-1 from 09:00 to 10:00
15-1 from 09:00 to 10:00
29-1 from 09:00 to 10:00

Cost for the first lesson is €10 after that it is €13,-.
Please come 10 to 5 minutes in advance so we can start the class on time.
In the unlikely event of any changes, I will inform you immediately.
And if you have any questions of your own, feel free to let me know.
This can be done by e-mail at info@inroot.nl or by phone/whatsapp at 06-54942451.

For now, first, have a happy New Years eve!
