“Qigong or Chi Kung cultivates our bodies through physical movement and develop in us acute mental awareness.”

Dr. Xiaolan Zhao

 

Chi Kung has its origins in:

  • Chinese Shamanism, linked to the connection between Mankind and Nature, as a means to find harmony between the human body and nature’s elements;
  • Taoism, through the consistent practice of Chi Kung it was believed that spirit and body were harmonised;
  • Buddhism, certain types of Chi Kung were developed by Buddhists to complement their sitting meditations with movements which promoted serenity and awareness;
  • Chinese Medicine, Chi Kung promotes overall health and therefore its practice has been advised as a preventative and restorative method for the general balance of the organism and to strengthen specific organs;
  • Martial Arts, since the practice of Chi Kung greatly improves performance for athletes, Martial Artists practice Chi Kung daily.

There are several types of Chi Kung and they are all based in the principles of having a straight rooted posture, keeping the spine aligned, being relaxed, focusing on diaphragmatic breathing, flowing with the movements and setting an intention with awareness throughout the practice to harmonise the Qi (Chi) flow in the body.

    Before I tried it, I was quite skeptical, but I must confess I loved the Qigong class and I will practice it regularly. I didn’t know Qigong was so complete, like the connection with the emotional states. I found the practice both relaxing and energising. I recommend it!

    I had classes with Natália when she was starting out and it was amazing! I thought she had been teaching for years. Her instructions are very clear and precise and she guided us incredibly through the practice. Thank you Natália 🙂

    Excellent class where we experience practical exercises of this ancient art.

    During the lesson the explanations of the different techniques are excellent for increasing awareness and connection with the body and mind.

    Daily practice promotes numerous benefits at a physical, mental and energetic level.

    I loved to know and I strongly recommend daily practice.

    Thanks to Natália Costa, who taught us so well and guided us with her experience in the art of qigong.
