Shaolin Cosmos ChiKung classes at Raglan School 5 I'd never tried anything like Chi Kung before but after attending the free introductory talk I was very motivated to start. The exercises are enjoyable and gentle and taught stage by stage in bite size pieces making it very easy to learn. The teacher, James encourages questions and is very patient and attentive to all the students. The atmosphere is very inviting and friendly which is really important to me. There's lots of supporting material sent to you after each lesson, for example, videos and emails, so that you can practice what you learn in your own time. I've practised for 10-15 minutes every day at home and the benefits to my health and wellbeing are gradual but very noticeable. It's helped me to clear my mind of runaway thoughts, helped me relax and become better at handling stress. The relaxation/meditation techniques taught can be applied in everyday life, like when you are in the office or on a crowded tube, where nobody would know what you are doing and it helps me nip anxiety in the bud before it builds up. What I like about this school is that we're not just taught Chi Kung movements but also other skills and techniques for physical, mental and emotional relaxation which all comes together to encourage the natural flow of chi energy around the body that ultimately is essential for good health.

Shaolin Cosmos Chi Kung Classes 5 Fantastic teaching - very detailed, accessible and patiently delivered. I particularly enjoyed all the background info on the history and the health benefits of chikung, and why the methods used in this school are so well suited to health and longevity in modern times. A very gentle pace that even my grandmother could do, but don't be fooled, the skills acquired are amazingly potent with regular practice. Thoroughly enjoyable and valuable - have already recommended to others.

18 Lohan Hands Qigong Review 5 An excellent introduction to this chinese art form. Sifu James is an Instructor that will share his many years of experience with you in a heartbeat. I found the techniques very calming and the exercises (forms) aren't overly strenuous no matter your physical conditioning. If learning how to calm your mind, relax your body and be at one with yourself have become priorities for you in an age of fast food, rush hours and digital overload, I really recommend this course.

Qigong (Tai Chi) 5 At 65 and no spring chicken I needed something which was not too hard going on the body and this was perfect. Great beginners course and I have signed up for the new course in September. Instructions geared to individual progress and not rushed. Very easy to follow instructions both at lessons and when doing it at home. Benefited physically and mentally. All done at my own pace.. So much more to learn and enjoy. .
