    I love these classes outside, and I have found Qi Gong to be exactly what I need - recovering from ill health. It's a very powerful and healing practice, and still quite physical despite how gentle it is. Emily gives lots of information about how things work as you move through the steps. 100% recommend to anyone.

    I’m really enjoying Forest Qigong. Emily is an excellent teacher bringing the essence of Qigong into the practise. It is a physical and spiritual journey. Being outdoors heightens the experience. Thank you Emily 🙏🏻

    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.
