Developing and Centering Qi

(Xia Dan Tian Qi Gong)

This Qi Gong retreat will be dedicated in developing a Qi belt in the lower cavity of the body called the Lower Dan Tian. The 11 animals of the Xia Dan Tian Qi Gong form will be taught. The benefits of cultivating Qi in the lower abdomen are numerous; among them an increase of general energy, mental clarity, presence, intuition, it oxygenates deeply and it activates a strong detoxification.


Grounding and Rooting Qi

(Iron Shirt Qi Gong 1)

This famous practice composed of 8 solid and static postures teaches how to bring Qi deep in the organs, tissues and bones and is highly aerobic in the sense that it brings a high amount of oxygen in the cells. More than simply melting fats and shaping the body, the greatest benefit is that it boosts the immune system.


Building Internal Qi Pressure

(Golden Bell Qi Gong)

This “Hard Qi Gong” form also called “Iron Body Budizhen Qi Jin Gong” comes from the Martial Qi Gong tradition. It is a blend of 12 movements designed to increase the Qi pressure in every parts of the body. It is highly energizing and it creates a powerful energy field. We teach this form in a context of healing Qi Gong because it activates a strong blood circulation, access and releases deep stagnations that softer forms of Qi Gong would hardly reach hence brings the detoxification to another level.


Yangshuo, China

Yangshuo is popular among tourists for its karst peaks, rivers, caves, and temples as well as its laid back cafes and bars. As such, the city is visited by a large number of Chinese tourists and foreigners alike, and has a relatively big ex-pats community.

Yangshuo is now a relatively large tourist town, different from most typical Chinese towns. It is relatively air and noise pollution free, (provided you get away from major roadways), very clean and does not usually suffer from endless massive traffic chaos. Instead, it harbours wonderful restaurants and shops, an almost unlimited number of hotels and hostels, and is fairly developed by mainland Chinese standards. Yangshuo is well-known amongst travellers in Southern China, and is a major stop on the trail of many independent travellers. The main reason people stop in the town is to explore the local countryside by bike, try their hand on the world class rock-climbing sites or take a bamboo raft down the river, viewing the famous ¥20 scene in the process.
