Photograph of Jaya practising qigong.

Qigong (chi kung), meaning ‘energy-skill’, is the ancient Chinese practice of mindfulness in motion. Grounded in Taoist wisdom, it simultaneously promotes physical health and fitness, emotional resilience and mental clarity.

Some qigong practices can develop strength and endurance, whilst others maintain and increase mobility, soothe the nervous system and activate and support the body’s natural healing powers. Above all qigong is deeply enjoyable and relaxing, and is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness.

Jaya has practised and shared qigong for many years and is a certified Holden Qigong instructor. For information about her current online classes please visit Qi-mindful.com.
