Qi Gong with Lhamo

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one’s mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. Specifically, this form of gentle exercise is composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space. In fact, when you practice and learn qi-gong exercise movement, there are both external and internal movements. There are likely thousands of qi gong styles, schools, traditions, forms, and lineages, each with practical applications and different theories about Qi (“subtle breath” or “vital energy”) and Gong (“skill cultivated through steady practice”). As Lhamo has a very extensive knowledge of many of them, she will explore different styles according to the students.

About the Teacher

Lhamo (Zhao Zhengrong), from China, started her martial arts journey at age 11, when she went to a Kung fu school in Shaolin and stayed there for 3 years, practicing 9 hours a day. Slowly shifting from outer martial arts to inner practices, she studied Ba Gua Zhang and Tai Ji Quan under different teachers, and kept on studying different aspects of Chinese Medicine. Lhamo moved to Auroville a year ago and since then she has been teaching and practicing a number of Chinese traditional martial and healing arts.
