Chi Kung is an ancient Chinese art based on energy flow, practiced for good health, increased energy, mental clarity and spiritual development.

It helps overcome many illnesses that are considered ‘incurable’ from a Western perspective.

It benefits flexibility and also helps connect body and mind in a world where the feeling of disconnection is all too common.

It helps individuals attain a deep sense of relaxation and inner peace, attain physical and mental strength and helps attain good health in the most natural way possible (from inside out) 

I guess the question is ‘Why would you not want to practice this gentle art as a way to stay healthy, flexible (body and in life) and connected?’


  1. From the first class/consultation you will feel more relaxed and peaceful.
  2. You will learn techniques from the ancient Chinese art of Chi Kung. Sifu Joan is highly trained in Shaolin and Taoist Chi Kung.
  3. You will learn how to circulate energy around the meridian system of the body, which helps heal an individual holistically- Body, Mind and Spirit. The whole idea is that you learn how to do this for yourself. Most Chi Kung schools teach relaxed Chi Kung exercises but this is not the whole picture. Chi Flow is needed to overcome chronic pain and illness.
  4. You will learn how to eliminate chronic pain and chronic illness on 6 week courses.
  5. You will learn how to overcome stress and burnout and stay calm in turbulent times on one stop workshops.
  6. You will learn how to take care of yourself on a daily basis with as little as 15 minutes practice once or twice a day.
  7. You will have the opportunity to learn more and deepen your skills on different courses with Sifu Joan.
  8. You can begin with an Evening or Morning workshop and later attend a weekend or 5 day workshop or begin on whichever workshop you wish. Sifu Joan teaches systematically. Here is her story: http://chikung.ie/sifu-joans-story/
