Local Qi Gong teacher and mindfulness coach, Tim Mason is offering free tasters of the ancient art of Qi Gong – a form of exercise and moving meditation closely related to Tai Chi. 

Qi Gong is a system of gentle physical exercise and mindfulness practice that originated in China thousands of years ago, but is now practiced throughout the world. It requires no particular religious or philosophical beliefs – just a lively interest in exploring and appreciating our own experience and relationship to the environment. Its integration of physical exercise with mental focus has benefits for bodily, mental and spiritual health well-being. 

Tim has a Diploma in ‘Mindfulness Approaches’ from the University of Bangor and in teaching of Qi Gong from the Shiatsu College. He said: “I was drawn to Qi Gong because it provides a focus for my wandering mind, keeps me in touch with the changing seasons and energises my body.”

The taster sessions will be at by the Ardagh Centre at Horfield Common, 11am, September 3 and 5.30pm, September 5 and at St Andrews Park in the dog free area by children’s play at 1.30pm September 3 and 1pm September 7. Tim will be by the banner and the sessions will run whatever the weather.
