Qigong practice is an ancient system of exercises rooted in Chinese medicine and philosophy designed to cultivate Qi – the life force that animates the body. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine nothing is more important to health than the uninhibited flow of Qi through the body. Qigong are simple exercises wherein gentle movements coordinated with the breath and the use of visualisation help to promote the cultivation and movement of Qi in the body.

Qigong is very accessible. It is non-competitive, low-impact, slow-moving, and unforced. The muscles are relaxed rather than tensed, the joints are not fully extended or bent, and connective tissues are not stretched, so far less strain is put on the body. A further beauty of these practices is that they are adaptable for any age or physical condition.

At Project DAO we run a beginners’ course of six, hour long sessions to learn the basics, after attending which you can join the ongoing intermediate class.  All the classes take place in Redfern Park. We like to practice in the open, but if it rains we take cover under the awning across the road from the supermarket.
