What is Qigong?
Qigong is an ancient Chinese practise of breath and movement stretching back over 4,000 years. It’s simple to learn and can be done by everyone.
This beautiful short film was created by Todd Villegas of our class practising on the beach when I was in Santa Cruz studying with Lee Holden, it captures the power and flow of Holden Qigong.
Anybody, at any age or fitness level, can use these moving meditation techniques – not only to improve physical fitness, but also to assist in recovery from injury and illness, to achieve a deeper sense of calm, and to relieve tension and stress. – Lee Holden
