An age old practice which maintains a healthy body and mind
Qi Gong is a combination of natural slow movements, postures, breathing and breath control, concentration and body awareness.
Qi Gong relaxes the mind and the body, eases tension, improves flexibility and dynamism thus allowing energy to circulate better.
It is also a way of life, reactivating sensations and restoring confidence in your own body.
At L'Ostalas we offer Qi Gong, firstly because it is an excellent way of reconnecting and secondly because anyone can do it to their own pace and capabilities.
"First of all I started practising Qi Gong for personal reasons. Having realised how beneficial it was for my own body and mind made me want to pass it on to L'Ostalas guests. The domain being in a totally natural environment makes it it's a perfect place to practice Qi Gong" Frédéric
Frédéric is a member of the French Qi Gong and Arts of Energising Teacher's Federation and author of Relaxation en Mouvement (Relaxation in Movement) published by Weka as well as leaflets on spirituality. He has been practising Qi Gong, which he discovered through his Aikido instructor (Jean-Marc Martin), since 2002. He learnt Qi Gong with Jean-Michel Chomet and Laurence Cortadellas of the traditional Chinese toaist school, Zhi Rou Jia. He also practises Aikido with Gérard Blaize (2nd Dan Aïkikaï Tokyo) Shiatsu with Michel Odoul and Ayurverdic Massage with Ajit Skar and Kashmir Yoga with Daniel Odier. These complementary transversal practices have allowed him to enrich his Qi Gong.
