Health Qigong courses

The China Cultural Center is pleased to announce the opening of health Qigong classes. The courses will begin next month, from March 2016, and be taught on Wednesdays by Christiane Heuze in the dance hall of the Center.

From March 2016, the China Cultural Centre in Brussels will offer health Qigong classes for adults. Christiane Heuze of the Belgian Health Qigong Federation will teach the future students.

Qigong is a daily therapy and is generally practiced standing in one place, either as a group or individually. By making slow, smooth and harmonious movements, blood and energy flow in the entire body. The basic idea is that when there is a blockage in certain areas, both energy and blood cannot circulate and disease might occur. The movements are punctuated by different types of breathing while the spirit (or mind) is focused on body movements.

The sequences of exercises are from a long therapeutic tradition of Chinese medicine. It is therefore important to smoothly perform precise movements and adjust his breathing to open the smallest joints, harmoniously distributing the weight of the body in order to release stress and tension.

In China, Qigong is practiced every day in the parks and in some hospitals. It may be exercised by all and at any age, regardless of the person’s physical fitness. Its practice respects and gradually heals the body, frees from stress, develops friendship between practitioners and opens the mind to other cultures.

Health Qigong classes will be held once a week on Wednesdays, from 12:30 to 13:30, from March to June 2016. The registration fee is €100 for 12 sessions. Two free practice sessions will be held on March 2 and 9 before the official opening of the courses on March 16. A minimum of eight students is required to open a class.
