The qi-gong classes at the Inverness branch of Yee’s Hung Ga Kung Fu Academy are proving to be very popular. New classes have been added to give students more flexability. There are now classes on Sunday 2-3pm, Tuesday mornings 10.30-11.30am and also Tuesdays & Thursdays 6.30-7.30pm.
Qi-Gong (pronounced Chee Gung) are gentle relaxing exercises, designed to bring energy into the body and calm the mind. Typically a qi-gong class involves rhythmic breathing, coordinated with slow movements or static postures and a calm mindful state. Qi-gong is a great form of gentle exercise and can be practised by everyone, young and old. It is great for improving health as well as concentration levels and focus.
In this class you will also learn the Ba Duan Jin (8 Pieces Of Brocade) Qi-Gong set. This set has been handed down for centuries. It has been attributed to legendary Chinese General Yue Fei who taught the exercise to his men to help keep their bodies strong and well-prepared for battle. The set consists of 8 sections. Each section contains a specific qi-gong exercise which can be practiced repeatedly for certain health benefits, or as part of the qi-gong set.
