Chi gong (qigong) is comprised of simple, easy-to-do, flowing movements and exercises, coordinated with deep, relaxed breathing and mindful awareness.

Chi gong literally means 'skill with life force', and it is one of the five components of traditional Chinese medicine. Chi is the life force that flows around and through all things. It is what invigorates and enlivens us. Think of it as bio-electromagnetic energy flowing through energy channels in your body, like water flowing in a river. If the river gets blocked, upstream becomes overly saturated, stagnant and 'damp', while downstream becomes under-saturated, undernourished and 'dry'. This state of blockage and imbalance causes weakness, pain and disease. If the block is removed, the water flows freely again, nurturing all areas of the river. The same is true for chi.

By practicing chi gong, consciously working with and nurturing your own flow of chi, you can help yourself release the energy blocks (that may have been acquired through injury, previous illness and emotional stress) and return your body to it's natural, healthy, bio-electromagnetic balance.

Doing chi gong can support our digestive, nervous, immune and various circulatory systems, take care of our bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and internal organs, and assist our body to heal from stress and injury. We can also connect more honestly and calmly with our emotions, and mange them better. By practicing chi gong, you feel more relaxed, your mind quiets down, and yet you also feel energised and alive.

Kele's Chi Gong Story

After 20 years teaching ballroom, latin, tango, a whiplash injury affected Kele's spine, neck and shoulders. During her process of recovery, Kele discovered the ancient Chinese practice of chi gong and felt its benefits right away. She loved it so much that she made it a daily practice, and decided to share chi gong with others by becoming a teacher. Kele trained with Lee Holden, the wonderful chi gong master based in Santa Cruz, CA.

Kele now enjoys sharing the benefits of chi gong with people of all ages and levels of fitness, through group classes and workshops and bespoke individual coaching sessions. Group classes and workshops are a great environment in which to learn movements and experience the power of community practice. In individual coaching sessions, Kele brings her unique awareness and sensitivity of movement and energy to understanding your body patterns and 'blockages', and offers targeted exercises and instruction specifically for you.
