From those who are stressed trying to keep up with the hectic pace of modern living to those who simply want a gentle movement practice—our Qigong Gold Coast classes are designed to benefit everyone.
One of the simplest forms of soft martial arts, Qigong will help you calm your body and mind while mobilising your joints and replenishing your energy. The exercises will massage and invigorate your internal organs and return strong blood flow to muscles and tendons. Translating to ‘energy work’ or ‘breath work’, in our Qigong Gold Coast classes, you’ll learn to work with energy (Qi) and build a new level of self-awareness, while enhancing the connection between your body, mind and spirit. The more you practice, the more you will be able to feel the Qi and move it around your body. Qigong is also perfect for our Kung Fu students who wish to increase their understanding of harnessing their internal energy.
Weekly class times
Join our Qigong Gold Coast classes to improve joint mobilisation, balance, coordination, breathing and general health while encouraging deep body relaxation and an unwavering sense of tranquillity.
Combining stretching, massage and breath work, our Qigong Gold Coast classes will help you quieten the mind, focus your spirit and improve energy and vitality. Regular Qigong practice will help to build your resilience to stress so you’re better equipped to cope with the challenges of everyday life. The focus on breath will encourage a deeper natural breath and a softening in the body which helps to oxygenate the blood, aid digestion and benefit the heart and lungs while calming your mind and emotions. There truly is no limit to the immense benefit Qigong practice can bring to your health.
After each Qigong class I feel relaxed and revitalised. Tuesday's are my favorite day of the week because I get to do Qigong. Qigong helps me manage stress levels, has improved me well being and is enjoyable. The mental and physical benefits are realised from the first class and continued practice keeps you feeling great.
When I first came to train Southern Mantis, my main focus was to get fit again and learn a style of Kung Fu. And while I did just that, I found it had a lot more to offer than just learning how to fight. The Kung Fu training was hard, which kept me keen and focused. I noticed my energy levels at my work had increased and I felt generally healthier. This only got better as I started regular Tai Chi and Qigong classes. At first they were simply something to improve my Kung Fu, but they became much more. Again, I could feel the difference in my health. I felt much calmer and not as stressed. Finally, I also adopted a more positive attitude in general from the people around me, and a ‘can do’ approach to life.
I practise Vipassana meditation daily and wanted to increase my knowledge of internal and external energy. Qi Gong had always been of interest for me so with some research I soon discovered Sifu Marc Webster and FitLife. After a few classes I was immediately hooked to the beautiful art of Qi Gong, I always leave the class calm and energised. I soon discovered the depth of the Chinese Arts, and FitLife has it all! I started Tai Chi on top of the Qi Gong and before I knew it I was training Kung Fu. I can honestly say that Sifu Marc Webster is a wealth and a depth of knowledge not only in Martial Arts but also the internal energy field of Qi Gong and Chinese medicine. I have tried several Martial Arts in my 38 years but none have I enjoyed more than Henry Sue’s Circular Tong Long, it is a vast sea of intricacies and a beautiful dance of energy. I’m lucky enough to have found something that I love! Thanks Sifu and all the instructors at FitLife for introducing me to this art and I look forward to the journey ahead of me.
I love the variety of different Qigong practices. I've learned so much about the systems of the body and the mind body connection. Qigong gives me a lot of energy, makes me fell calm and resilient. If you want to put pause on your day and recenter, Qigong is for you.
I really enjoy Sifu Marc's teaching of Qigong. He is amazingly patient and knowledgeable, so I learn about each specific Qigong exercise; its name, the reason for the exercise, the health benefits. At the end of a lesson I find I am extremely relaxed. I believe that my stamina and energy levels have been improved by Qigong exercise. This activity is not only easy but it is an activity that elderly persons could participate. The mental and physical health benefits make this something well worth considering.
Dear Marc, thank you for giving me back my energy. Since the last few months I have been attending the Academy doing Tai Chi and Qigong. I suffer from a rare neurological disorder that makes the muscles in my eyes, face, neck, etc cramp up. When I do your routines it provides me with the best relief, and also energy. It has given me my life back. Thank you so much, Marc.
My one regret about joining the Mudgeeraba Chinese Kung Fu Academy this year is I should have started 3 years ago when I first met Sifu and Sijair Toni. How much more advanced I would be now. Thank you all for welcoming me into your School in January 2010 and Wow! I have come a long way in these past few months. I feel energised and alive, something I haven’t felt in years, even after participating in other disciplines of exercise three and four times a week. I feel privileged to be taught by the dedicated Teachers within the School and feel honoured to be a part of the camaraderie and respect the students have towards each other and the enthusiasm for the teaching. I look forward with great anticipation to our Tai Chi and Qigong classes. If I feel this good after six months, imagine how I will feel after three years! Go the Grannies!
