five animal qigong
Qigong based on the qualities of different animals (especially the crane, tiger, bear, deer and monkey) is the oldest known form of qigong, with its roots in ancient shamanistic practice. Each of the ancient five animal qigong (‘chi gong’) forms has a special quality, a particular way of moving and an affinity with one of the internal organs. Peter is an experienced qigong teacher known for carefully explaining the essence and structure of each movement. After each course, all participants will get access to a video of the full form as an aid to practice.
