It is scientifically proven that practicing gentle bodily movements with high consciousness is a great tool in maintaining and healing mental health, in addition to their undeniable benefits for the body. Conscious gentle movement can be used to take the stress and anxiety that sits on the body and decrease the level of anxiety and improve mindfulness. Qigong movements are powerful tools for healing and improving mental well-being, as it decreases stress and symptoms of past traumas and increases attention flexibility (a mindfulness practice). Qigong movements have their roots in Chinese medicine and Taoist and Buddhist practice. Qigong is a series of practices and techniques that aim to maintain and recreate well-being by working on the body, breath, and mind, meaning by cultivating Qi (life force energy) in our system.

About the instructor:
I started Tai Chi and Qigong practice more than 10 years ago, in a Chinese temple in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, practicing with my incredibly sharp 85 years old Shifu (Master) daily. From then onwards qigong has become a tool for me to create a balance in my mind and body, release tension, and connect to the present moment. In 2018, I got a serious brain injury and concussion, which completely isolated me from any aspect of life for a whole year. I was unable to walk more than 5 meters, I could not meet people or even read books or watch TV or talk on mobile. Above all, I could not spend time with my 1-year-old son. I remember cutting a carrot without pain seemed like a dream. I tried everything swimming, yoga, physiotherapy, acupuncture, etc. and nothing really helped. Until suddenly it came to me to try qigong. Long hours of meditation and qigong helped me to come back to life again. It was then that I saw the impact that these two can have not only on my body but also on my mind and soul and learned that we can use these as a tool for healing and for creating balance. It became my mission to help others using these tools by combining them with my knowledge of human behavior and the physiology of mental health. Then, I was trained as a qigong teacher and have practiced and taught qigong since then as an instructor.
