Chi Kung/Qigong

This flowing practise can be used seated on a chair or standing. It mobilises your joints, strengthens your limbs and back while improving posture. Using repetitious smooth movements linked to deep breathing leads to a calm, peaceful state. This is based on oriental practice and reduces anxiety and muscular discomfort.
