About Our Next Term - The 8 Brocades (Ba Duan Jin)
Grounding Balancing and Strengthening
The 8 Brocades also known as “Ba Duan Jin” Chi Kung. An ancient form for modern times. One of the earliest written texts describing this practice dates from the Song Dynasty c. 1150.
The 8 Brocades consists of 8 separate movements when practised together they are a gentle but effective healing form that will help to strengthen the body, and eliminate stress. Each exercise works on a different Element or body system to bring balance.
The 8 Brocades is simple, easy to learn, and a great form to practice as we transition from Summer to Autumn.
All are welcome, whether experienced students or completely new to Chi Kung or Conscious Movement practice. Recordings are made available every week. We operate on a sliding-scale model of fees, and bursaries are available for those on a low-income.
