Qi Gong is a set of simple exercises that loosen the joints, improve posture and strengthen the bones (combating osteoporosis), as well as having beneficial effects on balance, vision disorders and functions of the internal organs. Correct posture regulates and harmonizes the body by relaxing it and keeping it in a position in which every part is in a natural physiological state, thus allowing internal energy to circulate through the energy channels without obstacle. Natural breathing gradually becomes thin, long and deep. Mind and heart harmonize by entering a state of calm and tranquility, passing from a state of agitation to one of peace.
One whole day costs 50 euros per person (including lunch).
