It was a Sunday morning, and I was at the top of a hill in Greenwich Park on a lovely sunny day, for my introduction to Qi Gong.
Wayne Harris, from Training4Life, began the session with us focusing on the breath and relaxing each part of the body. He then guided me through a series of gentle movements to improve body awareness and mobility. As a result of his years of training and practice he has developed an acute ability to sense the direction and strength of chi, the Life Force, flowing within himself and the student. He can see and sense when the student’s body is out of balance. He made subtle adjustments to my posture to help me feel more stable and to allow the chi to flow more freely. By the end of the 1 ½ hour session I felt more expanded – meaning that I had a heightened perception of everything around me. The colours of the trees and flowers around us were more vibrant. I also felt incredibly calm and at peace. In this modern age, with our typical stressful lifestyles, I feel that Qi Gong is a beautiful way to bring ourselves ‘back to centre’ and restore peace. Peace = Power. The power to guide your life in the direction you desire. And the power to be in control of your being no matter what is happening around you.
If you have a session with Wayne you can have confidence that you are in the hands of someone who already has a deep understanding of Energy. His calming presence and gentle guidance will help you to learn how to direct the Life Force within you to bring flexibility, strength and peace.
