5 years ago when I was diagnosed with RRV I was in pain, lost my mobility, independence, income, struggled to sleep, and ended up very depressed, not knowing where to turn for support and guidance.
Deanne Allan 2015
QIGONG WORKSHOPS & CLASSES
After personally experiencing the health benefits of Medical Qigong, Deanne loves to share whenever possible this beautiful mindful movement and meditation through, classes, workshops and retreats.
The healing benefits shine through the simplicity of the flowing movements. Connecting positive awareness, posture and coordinating the rhythm of the breath, allows a diversion from the chatter of the worried mind. While you shift out of the stress response of ‘fight or flight’ into the parasympathetic nervous system of rest and repair, the body sinks into a sense of calmness and finds the comfort of inner peace.
The body connects as one, mind body and breath to restore, opening pathways or meridian channels, as Qi begins to flow and the body has an opportunity to heal.

QIGONG & BREATHWORK
Flowing Movement & Meditation
Influenced by the philosophy of Taoism & Traditional Chinese Medicine, this is the easiest way I know to meditate.
You will find relaxation in this class, calming your body and mind.
Qi (Chi) meaning Energy and Gong (Koong) meaning exercise or practice.
Following the principles of yin & yang and our connection in nature, this is a beautiful combination of flowing movement and stillness.
One unique advantage of Qigong is that anyone and everyone can practice it.
All ages, all fitness levels, all health conditions can benefit from moving their body and quietening their mind.

breathe correctly using your diaphragm
create a better balance
improve your sleep
increase energy levels
reduce anxiety & depression
