Chi Kung

Orpington u3a members please logon to see group leader contact details.


The Chi Kung practice we will learn is known as Zhan Zhuang, “Standing Like A Tree.” It is pronounced “Jam Jong"!  The results of this system are very impressive: strengthened immune system; higher levels of energy; and a more relaxed nervous system. It is a very original and interesting energy system because it involves virtually no movement, which to the beginner is most surprising! Also surprisingly, unlike most exercise systems that use up lots of the body’s energy, Zhan Zhuang actually creates energy for the practitioner.

Zhan Zhuan, which we will be learning, ultimately fuses all four of these elements together. It reverses the process of decay, building up and releasing within the body an extraordinary flow of natural energy that is dormant within us, and all quite naturally.
