Practitioners tend to feel the benefits from their first class. You can too.

5 Reasons To Take Up Qi Gong

Certainly, there are numerous reasons why someone might consider taking up Qi Gong. Here are five compelling reasons to consider:

1. Improves Physical Health: Qi Gong involves gentle movements, breathing exercises, and meditation, all of which contribute to improved physical health. Regular practice can enhance balance, flexibility, and coordination. It also supports cardiovascular health, strengthens the immune system, and helps in regulating blood pressure. Qi Gong's flowing movements promote joint mobility, making it an excellent practice for individuals of all ages and fitness levels.

2. Boosts Mental and Emotional Well-Being: Qi Gong is known for its calming and stress-relieving effects. The mindful breathing and meditative aspects of the practice help reduce anxiety, promote relaxation, and improve mental clarity. Qi Gong can also aid in better sleep by calming the mind and relaxing the body. Regular practitioners often report reduced levels of stress and an overall improved sense of well-being.

3. Enhances Energy Levels: Qi Gong is designed to balance and enhance the flow of Qi (vital energy) in the body. By cultivating and circulating energy through specific movements and breath work, Qi Gong boosts energy levels and vitality. Practitioners often report feeling more energized and rejuvenated after a Qi Gong session, making it an excellent practice for those feeling fatigued or lacking energy.

4. Supports Spiritual Growth: Qi Gong has deep spiritual roots and is often practised as a means of connecting with one's inner self and the universal energy. Through focused intention, meditation, and energy work, Qi Gong can facilitate spiritual exploration, self-discovery, and a deeper connection to the spiritual aspects of life. It is a holistic practice that nurtures not only the body and mind but also the spirit.

5. Accessible and Low-Impact: One of the significant advantages of Qi Gong is its accessibility. It can be practised by people of all ages and physical abilities. The gentle, flowing movements are low-impact, making it suitable for individuals recovering from injuries or those with limited mobility. Qi Gong can be adapted to suit various fitness levels and can be practised in diverse settings, including indoors or outdoors.

Additionally, Qi Gong can be a social and community-oriented activity, fostering connections with others who share an interest in holistic health and well-being. Whether you are seeking physical fitness, stress relief, spiritual growth, or a combination of these benefits, Qi Gong offers a holistic approach to health and wellness that can enrich various aspects of your life.

And when you join the Bright Beings Academy, you will be part of our growing online community.

How Qi Gong Can Transform Your Life

As the world seems to be getting more stressed out, and more people are in a hurry to get nowhere, there's a solution to this.

I was caught up in this race to seeing how much stress you can take without managing it properly.

Below is a wealth of information about Qi Gong and the practise I teach, which is the Korean style called Ki Gong.

What Is Qi Gong (Ki Gong)?

Ki-gong (Qi Gong) is a form of ancient Asian healing art. The main focus of this healing art is to combine the mind, the breath and the body. Ki Gong helps to achieve a healthy flow of energy around the body through the meridian channels, while strengthening the body and lungs.

While we gather the energy into the lower body, we make the legs and lower body strong, while making the upper body flexible and light. The focus on the breath enables the body to restore a natural functioning of the respiratory system, which really helps the practitioner to experience the true power of Ki Gong.

So when you practice the healing art of Kookhak Ki Gong, you will start to experience a healthy, strong and flexible body, together with a calm and focused mind. Kookhak Ki Gong is a freestyle form of Ki Gong developed by Ilchi Lee and his Brain Education System, recognised by the UN as a healing art form.

The Origins Of Qi Gong

Qi Gong Mountains

It is difficult to pinpoint the origins of Qi Gong. But it definitely has its routes in the real ancient practise of Yoga. Buddhism came down to South East Asia and brought with it some of the elements of Yoga that was taught in India. This is where the Shaolin Monks thought to have invented their Kung Fu and Qi Gong forms from this practise.

According to Qi Gong.com, the Yong book, the book of changes, was created before 1122 BC until the rise of the Han Dynasty, which brought even more influence from India.

Qi Gong has had many influences on the actual healing art, which is why it is so diverse today. It truly is a healing art of the 21st Century, which will be able to prevent many of the chronic illnesses we are seeing today in our modern world.

Korean Sundo And Ki Gong

Sun Do

Sun Do is an ancient Korean Taoist Healing Art originating from the mountains of Korea. The aim of Sun Do is the personal development and growth of the individual on a physical, mental and spiritual plane.

Sun Do is mainly to do with meditation, abdominal breathing, known as Dahn Jon breathing, and holding postures. The holding postures are the calm element of Ki Gong.

And the breathing and meditation is also very integral to Ki Gong from Korea.

The new form or practises here in the western world have been adapted for the western mind, to make these practises more accessible. Our minds are much different to those of our ancestors, which is why so many people find it hard to meditate today.

The Kookhak Ki Gong I teach has made it much easier for me to meditate regularly. Before, starting this practise, my mind was all over the place.

Where Does Qi Come From?

Qi Has 2 main sources. The first is known as non-renewable. This is the life force energy you are born with. And is also know as original Qi or prenatal Qi.

The second is known as renewable. This is the life force energy we get from eating food, the water we drink, the air we breathe, being in nature and even practising mindful and meditation exercises.

The Three Main Principles

The three main principles of Kookhak Ki Gong are as follows -

  • Water Up - Fire Down

  • Where Your Mind Goes, Your Energy Follows

  • The Three Treasures

Water up fire down is the ideal energy circulation for the body to have. The brain works best when it is cool. The lower abdomen works best when it is warm. So for your body to be healthy, you need this flow of energy. The water up is the cooling energy of the Kidneys. The fire down is the heat energy of the heart. When you have finished your Qi Gong session, always check to see if the back of your neck is cool.

Where your mind goes your energy follows. Living in this age of information, the mind can be like a time traveller. Going back and forth to the past and the future, and repeating this over and over again. The body is always in the present. When we start to realise that where our mind goes, our energy follows, we can see that we can bring more energy into the body by focusing our attention there.

The Three Treasures. These are your three Dahn Jons. These are your energy centres of the body. The lower Dahn Jon is for the energy of power, passion and creativity. The middle Dahn Jon is for love, empathy and compassion. The upper Dahn Jon is for natural wisdom, vision and intuition. You can see that it is important to have all your Dahn Jons full of new energy.

Other Important Principles

  • Ying And Yang

  • Circulation Of Energy

  • Bringing Balance To Your Body

Ying and Yang. These are opposites. Water energy is female, and fire energy is male, for instance. This is also rooted in the Chinese 'Five Element' theory. We do this in the classes. We have action, calm action and calm movements to incorporate every state of the body.

Circulation Of Energy. Every live class, we stretch out the meridians of the body to ensure good energy flow everywhere. It has been scientifically proven that the heart is not strong enough to pump the blood around the body. So is it energy that carries the blood around the body? That is a good question. Good energy flow is essential for good health.

Bringing Balance To Your Body. The practise of Qi Gong is to bring the mind, the body and the breath back into balance. The original word for mindfulness is Sakshi Bav, which means 'witness mentality'. Qi Gong helps you find that original mindful state quickly because of the nature of the exercises. You just need to focus on your mind, your body and your breath throughout your session and you will feel the difference.

yin and yang by Peter Paul Parker

The yin and yang symbol is a fundamental concept in Chinese philosophy and represents the duality and interconnectedness of all things. It consists of a circle divided into two halves: one black (yin) and one white (yang). Yin symbolizes qualities such as darkness, passivity, cold, and femininity, while yang represents brightness, activity, heat, and masculinity.

The small dot of the opposite colour within each half signifies the presence of the other within each aspect, suggesting that yin and yang are interdependent and complementary forces, not opposing or conflicting. This symbol illustrates the balance and harmony between contrasting elements in the universe, reflecting the natural cycles and harmony in life.

Benefits Of Practising Qi Gong

The benefits of practising Qi Gong is an enormous list. We must remember that the body is interconnected. And we have an energy body and a physical body. The energy body is the chakta system and the meridian lines. Here are some benefits to practising Qi Gong listed below.

  • Relieving Mental And Emotional Stress

  • Soothe Anxiety And Calming The Mind

  • More Connected With Your Inner Self

  • Manage Anger And Even Depression Effectively

  • Turn Negative Thoughts Into Positive Ones

Qi Gong And The Energy Body

Everyone is familiar with the physical body. But what about the energy body? The physical body is made up of our flesh and bones. And our internal structure like the endocrine system, the internal organs and more. People who are getting into a better health and well-being practise start to look after the physical body.

But what about the energy body. With the new understandings of modern science, we realise our energy body creates the matter of the body. That is, it gives our body a blueprint for form. We accept that our five senses have their specific areas of expertise. Our energy body works in a similar way, with areas of the body dealing with specific energy traits the body has.

Understanding the energy body means you can have a truly holistic approach to health and well-being. You can change your energy and actually start to focus on where you want to put your energy.

Five Main Aspects To The Energy Body

The concept of the energy body is prevalent in various spiritual and holistic traditions, including traditional Chinese medicine, yoga, and Ayurveda. Here are the five main aspects of the energy body:

1. Chakras: In many Eastern traditions, chakras are energy centres located along the spine. There are seven main chakras, each associated with specific physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects. Balancing and aligning the chakras is believed to promote overall well-being and harmony.

2. Meridians: According to traditional Chinese medicine, meridians are energy pathways through which Qi (life force energy) flows. These meridians connect various organs, providing balance and vitality to the body. Practices like acupuncture and acupressure aim to balance the flow of energy through these meridians.

3. Aura: The aura is an electromagnetic energy field that surrounds and permeates the human body. It is often depicted as a colourful, luminous field. Different colours and patterns in the aura are believed to correspond to different emotional states, health conditions, and spiritual aspects of an individual.

4. Nadis: In yoga philosophy, nadis are energy channels that carry subtle energy (prana) throughout the body. It is believed that there are around 72,000 nadis, with three main channels: Ida (associated with the moon, representing the feminine, calming energy), Pingala (associated with the sun, representing masculine, dynamic energy), and Sushumna (the central channel, associated with balance and spiritual awakening).

5. Energy Centres in Traditional Cultures: Various indigenous and traditional cultures around the world recognize and work with energy centres within the body. For example, in Native American traditions, there are energy centres within the body that are believed to connect individuals with the Earth and spiritual realms.

These aspects of the energy body are interconnected and are central to many holistic healing practices. Balancing and harmonizing these energies are thought to promote physical health, emotional well-being, and spiritual growth.

What Is The Energy Body?

The Energy Body has three main elements to it. The Chakras, known as Dahn Jons in this practise, the meridians and the acupressure points. The 12 major meridians of the body are the lung, the large intestine, the stomach, the spleen, the heart, the small intestine, the bladder, the kidney, the pericardium, the triple burner, the gall bladder and the liver meridian. All these meridians are worked on in the live classes at the Bright Beings Academy.

There are other meridians in the body like the Governing Vessel and the Conceptual vessel. Meridians allow the flow of energy around the body. This has now been proven scientifically.

You can look at the energy body in this way. We have the Three Dahn Jons or Seven Chakras as the major cities of the body. The meridian lines are the transport system, and the acupressure points are like the small towns and villages in your country. The country is the body.

The energy body is thought to be the spiritual aspect of Qi Gong. This is because it has an element of mysticism about it. That is, it is not as easy to know what each part of the energy body does. Unlike the physical body, which is easy to understand.

The Spiritual Aspects

This really comes from the three treasures. That is, your three Dahn Jons. Here is what they represent in this form of Qi Gong (Ki Gong).

The Upper Dahn Jon. This is also known as your 6th Chakra. It represents Chun energy in this practise, which means heavenly energy. This is where you natural wisdom comes from. Also this is where you become more of a visionary. And also your intuition increases with the power of this Dahn Jon.

The Lower Dahn Jon. This is also known as your 2nd Chakra. This is probably the most important Dahn Jon of all, and is often overlooked with spiritual practises. This is Ji Energy. This is the energy of the earth. And when this Dahn Jon is working properly, you will feel more power, passion and creativity surging through your life.

The Middle Dahn Jon. This is also known as the 4th Chakra. It represents Human Energy. This is In energy. This is where your love, empathy and compassion flow from. And this energy is connected to humanity.

The spiritual practise for Kookhak Ki Gong is to connect with the Chun And Ji Energy and bring this onto the earth, the In energy. Chun - Ji - In. This brings balance back to humanity. And it is really needed in the age we live in at the moment.

When you complete this task of waking up the Three Treasures, you will be on the path of Chun Wha. This is known as Soul Completion. This purpose is to bring balance back into the world. And your main living principle is Hong Ik. This means 'What is good for me, is good for you too.'

8 Spiritual Aspects To Qi Gong

Qi Gong, deeply rooted in ancient Chinese philosophy and spirituality, encompasses several spiritual aspects that contribute to its significance as a holistic practice. Here are some key spiritual aspects of Qi Gong:

1. Cultivation of Qi (Life Energy): Central to Qi Gong practice is the cultivation and balance of Qi, the vital life energy that flows through the body. Practitioners believe that harmonizing Qi promotes not only physical health but also spiritual well-being, enhancing one's overall vitality and longevity.

2. Connection with Universal Energy: Qi Gong practitioners often aim to connect with universal or cosmic energy. Through specific movements, breath work, and meditation, individuals seek to attune themselves to the energy of the universe, fostering a sense of interconnectedness with all living things.

3. Mind-Body-Spirit Unity: Qi Gong emphasizes the unity of mind, body, and spirit. The practice encourages individuals to be fully present, integrating their thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations. This integration fosters a deep sense of inner peace, spiritual awareness, and holistic balance.

4. Alignment with Natural Rhythms: Qi Gong practitioners align their movements and breathing with the natural rhythms of the environment, such as the rising and setting of the sun or the phases of the moon. This attunement to natural cycles fosters a sense of harmony and allows practitioners to tap into the spiritual essence of the natural world.

5. Spiritual Healing: Qi Gong is often used as a spiritual healing practice. Through focused intention, visualization, and energy work, practitioners believe they can facilitate healing not only on the physical level but also on the emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Qi Gong is thought to cleanse and balance the energy body, promoting overall spiritual wellness.

6. Meditative and Mindfulness Practices: Qi Gong incorporates meditative techniques that quiet the mind and promote mindfulness. By cultivating a calm and centred state of awareness, practitioners can deepen their spiritual connection, enhance self-awareness, and explore the inner realms of consciousness.

7. Development of Intuition and Inner Wisdom: Regular Qi Gong practice is believed to enhance intuition and access to inner wisdom. By quieting the mind and opening the heart, practitioners may experience profound insights, spiritual guidance, and a deepened connection to their higher selves.

8. Enhanced Spiritual Awareness: Through the practice of Qi Gong, individuals often report heightened spiritual awareness, expanded consciousness, and a greater sense of purpose and meaning in life. This increased awareness can lead to a more profound spiritual journey and a deeper understanding of one's spiritual path.

Overall, Qi Gong serves as a spiritual practice that promotes self-discovery, inner peace, and spiritual evolution. By aligning the mind, body, and spirit, Qi Gong offers practitioners a transformative spiritual experience, allowing them to explore the depths of their being and connect with the universal essence of life.

What Are The Dahn Jons?

The Dahn Jon's are the energy centres of the body. These are places where energy is gathered and stored. Dahn Jon's can be considered as chakras as they are much the same. When you sensitise your mind and brain to your body, you can feel the energy in these places.

The three main Dahn Jons are the internal Dahn Jon's. The four external Dahn Jon's are on the hands and feet. The Jang Shim Dahn Jon is in the centre of the palm. And the Yong Chun Dahn Jon is Kidney 1 acupressure point, just by the ball of the foot. In holding positions like sleeping tiger, you can learn to bring in new energy from these external Dahn Jons and place that energy into your lower Dahn Jon.

The Three Dahn Jons

In traditional Daoist philosophy, the three Dahn Jon's are energy centres located along the body's midline. These energy centres are crucial in practices like Qi Gong, Tai Chi, and meditation. Each Dahn Jon serves specific functions:

1. Lower Dahn Jon:

- Location: Located in the lower abdomen, approximately three finger widths below the navel and deep within the body.

- Function: The Lower Dahn Jon is associated with the body's physical and vital energy and is considered the root of physical and mental vitality. It is often referred to as the "Sea of Qi" and is the centre of gravity in the body. Cultivating energy in the Lower Dahn Jon enhances physical strength, stamina, and overall vitality. It is also believed to be the source of prenatal Qi, representing our constitutional essence.

2. Middle Dahn Jon:

- Location: Located in the middle of the chest, at the level of the heart's centre.

- Function: The Middle Dahn Jon is associated with emotional and spiritual energy. It is related to the heart, emotions, and consciousness. Cultivating energy in the Middle Dahn Jon promotes emotional balance, compassion, and a sense of inner peace. It is considered the centre of emotional intelligence, fostering love, kindness, and empathy. Practices involving the Middle Dahn Jon aim to harmonize emotions and develop a compassionate heart.

3. Upper Dahn Jon:

- Location: Located in the forehead, between and slightly above the eyebrows, often referred to as the "Third Eye" region.

- Function: The Upper Dahn Jon is associated with spiritual energy and higher consciousness. It is related to the mind, intuition, wisdom, and spiritual insight. Cultivating energy in the Upper Dahn Jon enhances mental clarity, intuition, and spiritual awareness. Activation of the Upper Dahn Jon is believed to facilitate spiritual growth, enhance meditation experiences, and deepen one's connection to higher realms of consciousness.

In practices like Qi Gong and meditation, practitioners focus on these Dahn Jon's to gather, circulate, and refine energy. Cultivating and balancing energy in the Three Dahn Jon's is believed to promote overall health, emotional well-being, and spiritual development. Balancing these energy centres allows for the harmonious flow of energy supporting a balanced and vibrant life.

See the pictures below for positioning of the Dahn Jon's.

The Seven Dahn Jons

7 Dahn Jon Positions By Peter Paul Parker

Energy Transformation Sequence

Today's stressful world plays havoc with our energy body. We should have water energy rising to the head and fire energy flowing down the the lower Dahn Jon. Many people have the opposite energy flow, where too much energy flows to the head. This causes a hot head. And when we have a hot head, our brains do not work properly. And when out lower abdomen is cool, our immune system does not work properly either.

In the picture below you can see how most people are today with the energy mainly around the head. In the middle picture, you have the heart energy being prevalent, and this causes your heart energy to go in and out like a concertina. This is exhausting.

And when our energy is balanced, we have the picture on the right, where the energy is strongest in our lower Dahn Jon so we can receive easily the higher energies we can tune our upper Dahn Jon into.

Bad energy condition

Too Much Energy In The Head

This is how most people are in the world today. So much information is going up to the head, the energy flows up there and gives you weak stability.

too much energy in the heart

Too Much Energy In The Heart

Too much energy in the heart area also gives us a weakened stability. We are not grounded and we become emotionally exhausted easily.

perfect energy condition

Perfect Energy Balance

This is the perfect energy balance for your body. A strong base and a light top. You can receive the Chun energy and Ji energy easily and feel balanced.

Use Qi Gong To Flip The Pyramid

Qi Gong will help you flip the pyramid and feel centred, whole and complete again. Our energy creates the material body. When we get our energy body in good condition, our physical body will follow.

It is the focus on the lower Dahn Jon at the beginning of your practise will really help you get more into a spiritual life. This is often overlooked in many new concepts, but is what our ancestors taught in the old ways.

What Are The Twelve Meridians Of The Body?

12 Meridians by Pteer Paul Parker

The 12 meridians in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) are energy pathways that run throughout the body.

In the Qi Gong classes at the Bright Beings Academy, all 12 meridians are opened to allow your energy to flow.

Each meridian is associated with specific organs and physiological functions.

Here's a brief overview of what the 12 main meridians are responsible for:

1. Lung Meridian (LU): Responsible for respiratory function, immune system support, and emotional balance.

2. Large Intestine Meridian (LI): Responsible for digestive processes, absorption, and elimination.

3. Stomach Meridian (ST): Responsible for digestion and nutrient absorption. Also influences energy levels and emotions related to worry and overthinking.

4. Spleen Meridian (SP): Responsible for digestion, nutrient assimilation, and immune function. It is also associated with mental clarity and concentration.

5. Heart Meridian (HT): Responsible for circulatory functions and emotional well-being, including joy and relationships.

6. Small Intestine Meridian (SI): Responsible for further digestion and absorption of nutrients and separation of clear and turbid substances in the body.

7. Bladder Meridian (BL): Responsible for the excretion of waste and fluids, regulating water balance, and supporting the nervous system.

8. Kidney Meridian (KI): Responsible for regulating fluid balance, supporting the reproductive system, and controlling basic life force (Jing).

9. Pericardium Meridian (PC): Responsible for protecting the heart and regulating emotional responses, particularly in relationships.

10. Triple Burner Meridian (TB): Not associated with a specific organ but responsible for regulating body temperature, metabolism, and the movement of fluids in the body.

11. Gallbladder Meridian (GB): Responsible for decision-making, planning, and the assimilation of fats and oils in the body.

12. Liver Meridian (LR): Responsible for detoxification, regulating emotions (especially anger), and ensuring the smooth flow of Qi and blood in the body.

In traditional Chinese medicine, the balance and smooth flow of Qi (life energy) through these meridians are vital for maintaining good health. When there is an imbalance or blockage in any of these meridians, it can lead to various physical, emotional, or mental health issues. Practices like acupuncture, acupressure, and Qi Gong aim to balance the flow of Qi in these meridians to promote overall well-being and health.

In the Qi Gong classes at the Bright Beings Academy, all the meridians are activated during the class. An amazing sense of connectedness happens when you complete a class. And this feeling builds on you from class to class. That is why it is highly recommended to have a regular practise of Qi Gong.

FAQ's On Qi Gong (Ki Gong)?

What Exactly Is Qi Gong?

Qi Gong has existed for thousands of years. Qi Gong is a powerful energy healing art from South East Asia, that originated in China. To simplify this explanation, it is combining your mind, your body and your breath together. This can be in movement, either calm or in action. And also in stillness, with holding positions. Qi Gong is easy to learn but hard to master.

FAQ image

How Old Is The Practise Of Qi Gong?

It is difficult to put an exact date on the practise but it definitely goes back over 2,500 years. Some say even further than that. And new research is showing the Buddha brought the principles of Yoga to South East Asia, and Qi Gong flourished from that.

FAQ image

Can I learn Qi Gong From Home?

You can learn Qi Gong from home. It is easier now, more than ever. At the Bright Beings Academy we have two live classes a week, on demand classes, and short exercise sequences, so you can target specific areas of the body you need to.

FAQ image

What Is The Difference Between Qi Gong And Ki Gong?

Ki Gong is the Korean style of Qi Gong but the principles are the same. Ki or Qi means energy and Gong means utilising well, or could even mean mastering. The style taught at the Bright Beings Academy is called Kookhak Ki Gong. This is a free style form of Ki Gong.

FAQ image

Who Benefits The Most From Qi Gong?

Qi Gong actually benefits everyone. I personally have worked in schools and elderly community centres and seen benefits for all ages. In fact, I have been working with a lady whose lungs had been really damaged by Sars CoV2. She worked with me for 6 months, and her cardiologist has just commented on the improvement of her breathing. She is in her 70's.

FAQ image

What Is The Difference Between Tai Chi And Qi Gong?

Tai Chi Is A Martial Art. Qi Gong is a healing art. Qi Gong came before Tai Chi. All Tai Chi moves are considered Qi Gong moves, but not all Qi Gong moves are considered Tai Chi. Qi Gong is a big umbrella for a holistic healing way of living.

FAQ image

Is Qi Gong Considered Spiritual?

The word spirit comes from Latin and means breath. So Qi Gong is spiritual, as it makes you focus on your breath. It comes from a spiritual background where the chakra system and meridians are brought up to their full potential. And it is taught using the Taoist or Daoist philosophy. This means the Way. In Kookhak Ki Gong we call this Chun Wha, which actually translates as soul completion. This is where you live in accordance with your profound purpose by following your intuition, vision and natural wisdom. This comes from your upper Dahn Jon Activation. .

The Power Of Qi Gong (Ki Gong)

Kookhak Ki Gong Champions with Peter Paul Parker

What has Julia Roberts, Kate Beckinsale, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tiger Woods, Iggy Pop and Gary Lightbody from Snow Patrol have in common. They all practice the ancient art of Ki Gong.

Ki Gong is unlike Tai Chi. Tai Chi is a martial art, where Ki Gong is a healing art. It can be said that all Tai Chi movements are Ki Gong, but not all Ki Gong movements are Tai Chi.

Ki Gong focuses on three main aspects. Combining movement with your breath and focusing the mind in the moment. This is easier said than done.

Our bodies are always in the present, but our minds are sometimes in the past, sometimes in the future, but rarely in the moment. Ki Gong helps the mind focus on the present, bringing peace to the practitioner and a sense of well being.

The type of Ki Gong practiced at New Malden is Kookhak Ki Gong, developed by Ilchi Lee.

Ilchi Lee has developed the Brain Education System that encompasses Ki Gong as one of the proponents to wake the mind and body up to live a healthier, happier and more peaceful life

Kookhak Ki Gong Uk Champion

In 2016, Peter the instructor at New Malden, went to South Korea and came home as part of a team that were champions at the Kookhak Ki Gong competition in Dagou city, South Korea.

Kookhak Ki Gong focuses on all three aspects of the body training. The first is training the body ready for martial arts. We practice body posture exercises to strengthen the inner core of the body. The second aspect of the practice is body healing.

This is a fundamental part of the class where deep breathing is always encouraged, which is linked to movement and focusing the mind.

The third part of the practice is the esoteric part of the training to sensitize the body to the energy within and around the body.

Kookhak Ki gong incorporates all three of these aspects of Ki Gong in one class.

Ki Gong becomes just gentle exercise if you do not connect the mind with the body and the breath. Here are some testimonials of the class.

Qi Gong At The Bright Beings Academy

Qi Gong At The Bright Beings Academy

Why not learn Qi Gong at the Bright Beings Academy. The wonderful thing about Qi Gong is that it is easy to learn, but hard to master.

This keeps the challenge up when it comes to mastering your energy. But you can feel the benefits really quickly, even with your first class.

More people are waking up to the fact that health is the new wealth, and Qi Gong is the most fun way to keep your body healthy that I have found.


Does Qi Gong Really Work?

Does Qi Gong Really Work?

Asking does Qi Gong really work is a very good question. You should be sceptical in todays world.

But the studies show that Qi Gong does actually work. And what should be remarkable to you is that we ran a study in our local area in community centres and came up with the same results as many of the studies done.

More on that later. To think about this in the proper way, you need to understand what Qi Gong is. It is a universal term for many different modalities.


Qi Gong For Sleep

Qi Gong For Sleep

Why is Qi Gong good for sleep? Firstly lets think about lying awake at night. That is very stressful and no fun at all.

Tossing and turning at night is a terrible position to be in. Qi Gong will give you the tools to help you soothe your stress and anxiety, clear the mind, so you can get a good nights sleep.

Qi Gong brings balance to your body. The Yin and Yang energy comes into balance. Many sleep issues are caused by excessive Yang energy in the head.


Qi Gong To Boost Immune System

Qi Gong To Boost Immune System

How can you use Qi Gong to boost your immune system? Qi Gong has been used to boost the immune system for thousands of years.

And it is still effective today as it has always been. Our actual body has not changed for thousands of years.

But the the way we live today has radically changed. Basically, if you are not using your body as nature intended it to be used, you will fall into disease.


What Does Qi Gong Do?

What Does Qi Gong Do?

Qi Gong is a mind body spirit practise that started in South East Asia. China really is the birthplace of Qi Gong. And you also have Ki Gong which came from Korea that is also Qi Gong.

Qi Gong is becoming more popular in the West because of the health benefits the healing art promises. And that is true. When you start a regular practise of Qi Gong, you will begin to feel it straight away.


Qi Gong For Lower Back Pain

Qi Gong For Lower Back Pain

Using Qi Gong for lower back pain? Is it true that this could be able to help lower back pain. From personal experience, I would say the answer is definitely yes.

But this is my personal experience. Obviously you need to speak to a health professional about any issues you may be having with your back. Chiropractors are very good at finding where there is a problem in your back.


Live Qi Gong Classes

Live Qi Gong Classes

Are you looking for live Qi Gong classes online or in person? In person is very restrictive because of geographical locations. But online can be much easier to achieve.

If you are looking to take up Qi Gong, then look at what is available at the Bright Beings Academy.

At the Bright Beings Academy we run two live classes a week with a live instructor. The Qi Gong taught is a Korean style. The practice is still about combining the mind with the body and the breath.


What's The Difference Between Qi Gong And Reiki?

What's The Difference Between Qi Gong And Reiki?

What's The Difference Between Qi Gong And Reiki is a very good question?

They are both forms of energy or energetic healing. But what's the difference between the two ancient healing modalities.

We are going to take a quick overview of these two healing practises and see what may be best for you.


Qi Gong Breathing

Qi Gong Breathing

Qi Gong and breathing. The connection is this.

When you break down Qi Gong to its basic elements, you could say it is focusing your mind on your body and your breath.

Breathing is an integral part of any Qi Gong practise.


What's The Difference Between Qi Gong And Meditation?

What's The Difference Between Qi Gong And Meditation?

Meditation is like a workout for your mind, whereas, exercise is a workout for your body.

When you combine these two practises together, you get Qi Gong.

This results in more flexible mind and body. More stamina and more focus.


What's The Difference Between Qi Gong And Tai Chi?

What's The Difference Between Qi Gong And Tai Chi?

Many people ask me what's the difference between Qi Gong and Tai Chi?

First, look at these questions.

Have you ever wondered why a good mind body connection is so difficult to achieve?


Qi Gong For Beginners

Qi Gong For Beginners

Start straight away on your learning journey with Qi Gong for beginners at the Bright Beings Academy.

You can learn Qi Gong at the Bright Beings Academy at your own pace.

There are live classes every week to experience the many different ways Qi Gong can be practised.


Qi Gong For Stress

Qi Gong For Stress

Qi Gong is amazing at helping with stress.

Studies indicate that 90% of chronic disease is caused by chronic stress.

Stress disrupts the healthy and natural circulation of the body.

Our body has built in mechanisms for helping us realise when something is going wrong. So a healthy body will let you know when problems arise.

The Real Deal For Health And Vitality

When it comes to a holistic approach to health and well-being, there is no better practise than Qi Gong (Ki Gong). This has been practised for thousands of years, and there are many masters who are over 100 years old still practising today. This proves its health benefits of longevity.

Once you have started your practise, it will not take long before you actually start to feel the benefits. And you will find meditation and mindfulness so much easier also.

At the Bright Beings Academy, we can't get any fairer than this. If you want to join and receive two live classes a week, with a comprehensive online library of exercises and classes, you can actually try this for free. No obligation to stay once your trial period is over. But we are sure you will.
