NEWS: Qi grows in Waitati

The study and practice of qigong is growing in the Waitati area, with
two learning opportunities there advertised in this month's 'Blueskin
News'.

Jay Baker, who will hold classes on Tuesdays, says regular practice
"has noticeable effects on improving physical health and helping
people to become more focused and grounded."

Ans Lakmaker, who will provide individual Zhineng Qigong sessions in
Waitati and elsewhere, says "We will learn techniques which you will
be able to apply in everyday life. They will teach you how you can use
your mind, motion and sound to increase qi." Ans is also promoting a
visit to Dunedin by a master in Zhineng Qigong.

Qigong (or ch'i kung) is an internal Chinese meditative practice which
uses slow graceful movements (and sometimes breathing techniques) to
promote the circulation of qi (pronounced "chee"; energy flow,
vitality or life-force) within the human body, and enhance a
practitioner's overall health. Although qigong is often confused with
martial arts or tai chi, qigong is usually much slower and focuses on
the "qi" aspect to a much greater degree. With more than 10,000 styles
of qigong and 200 million people practicing, there are a variety of
methods.
