HEALTH

Qi-Gong

Qi-Gong

Is Qi-Quong a sport? A philosophy? Could it give you help, hope and orientation? Or is it only relaxing with an exotic touch, some distraction from the boring everyday life? Combat sport? A form of art? Wellness?

After a few lessions Qi-Quong will tell you, who you are, where you are from, which strengths you have and on which weaknesses you should work. The experiences and the intelligence of Qi-Quong will help you with many things: getting clarity and honesty about yourself; agility; stamina, focusing on yourself and the moment. Qi-Quong is inviting you to yourself.

Stretching

Stretching

Sitting for a long time and monotonous movements define your everyday life? You are searching for a compensation to help you staying fit and healthy?

Every class will start with a warm-up, followed by some stretching exercises (for example from the yoga sector) of different levels of difficulty. Because of that is the class suitable for beginners and advanced.

„Explain it to me and I will forget it; show it to me and I will remember; let me do it and I will comprehend.” (Konfuzius)

Harmony, power and motion

Aikido is a Japanese martial art which was developed from hundreds of years old Samurai-fighting techniques. It is a self-defense martial art which doesn´t require a lot of muscular strength. Aikido is for most of the athletes more than a way of self-defense. Many exercises in the regularly training are there to develop a good sense of your motion and the therefor required physical and mental requirements. You can train how to exercise in accordance with the right breathing and without needless muscular tensions. Every training contains short meditation, breathing- and stretching-exercises, basic steps, exercises in how to fall the right way in every direction and last but not least the Aikido-techniques.
