Forest Qigong - Outside
In this unique Qigong class in Christchurch, we head outside in to reduce stress practising in nature - in the forest at Little Hagley Park. Stress and anxiety are transformed into inner peace, tranquility and courage in a full mind body workout.
We deep dive into various Qigong styles to bring balance and harmony to your mind, body and emotions. We explore breathing techniques, warm ups, stretches, flows and standing postures. Each class finishes with a relaxing guided meditation.

WOW I purchased an online class during the lockdown. I did not manage to attend it live but was given access to view it in my own time. I cannot explain how much better I feel. Emily explains everything so clearly, even though this is my first time trying Qigong I benefited hugely due to the clear instructions . So pleased to have discovered you.
Emily, Thank you for my first ever Qigong class .
Living outside of NYC in this time of uncertainty has been very challenging for me. I so enjoyed your class with your beautiful calming voice and energy. 💞
Lovely practice. Thank you and Happy Mother's Day!
