JULY COBURG MONTHLY CHI KUNG WORKSHOP 11/07/15

Students wrapped up warm and braved the elements during last weekends Coburg Monthly Chi Kung Workshop.
Originally training was to be inside, however we were blessed with fresh air and bouts of sunshine on our backs. Luckily the torrential downpour held off until after the class had finished smile emoticon

These shots were taken during practice of the wonderful Chi Kung exercise Carrying the Moon, and shows students in Chi Flow afterwards.

Carrying the Moon's benefits are: Promoting youthfulness, great for the spine, enhances the nervous system, and generates allot of Chi Flow.

SMILING FROM THE HEART & COMPLETING THE PROGRAM :)

Huge congrats to Tracy for recently completing the Fundamentals of the 18 Lohan Hands weekly Chi Kung class. Fantastic effort for learning a wonderful set of personal tools for building health, vitality and wellbeing.  8 months of commitment to weekly classes and daily practice paid off and has helped create strong foundations in the Internal Arts and more importantly in understanding a deeper sense of self.

EASTER 2015: DRAGON STRENGTH CHI KUNG AT THE BENDIGO ANNUAL CHINESE CULTURAL FESTIVAL

This is a video of Sifu Michael Agar and myself demonstrating the fabulous Chi Kung Set called the Dragon Strength Chi Circulation Set, on Easter Saturday at the Chinese Museum in Bendigo, as part of the annual Chinese Cultural Festival.
We took part on the day in order to connect with the Bendigo Chinese Association, the Golden Dragon Museum and its community, and of course to show respect to our teacher Grand Master Wong Kiew Kit whom taught us this wonderful Set last December in Penang Malaysia.

We had a fabulous day, at the back of the First Coburg Scout Hall last Saturday.

Chi Kung Workshop at Calvary Health Care Bethlehem

Taught a 1 hour Chi Kung Fundamentals Workshop to the staff at the Hospice on Wednesday 29th Oct 2014.  
The weather wasn't looking great in the morning, however by 3pm the sun was out and were were able to do the workshop out in the gardens of the Hospice under the shade of the trees.

The participants, were able to take time out from their very hectic and very important work schedule and use the opportunity to breath the fresh air, enter a space of calm, stillness and peace during the Chi Kung session.  Even the 2 campus dogs seemed to enjoy the experience :)

It was a fabulous opportunity to assist the professionals within their working environment by helping them re-charge their energy levels, calm their minds and clear away build up of daily working tension within the body, mind and emotions.
