What is Forest Qigong?
Qigong, ( also spelt -qi gong, chi kung, or chi gung) is an ever-deepening system of coordinated posture, movement and breathing, in a calm state of mind. It is of great benefit to body-mind, and soul, and is considered by some, a spiritual practice.
Forest Qigong, (not to be confused with Spring Forest Qigong) is simply the practice of Qigong in a natural woodland environment.
The main diffrence being that ones practice is very well supported and enhanced by being imersed in the primordial environment of a natural ancient woodland.
"It is an honour to start my QiGong journey in your woodland."

Marc has been practicing qigong since 1985, during this time he has studied in several schools under different teachers in a number of countries.
His journey has brought him now to an ancient tradition within a single 'lineage', his current teacher is based in Asia. Learning the arts at the level Marc now personally works at is described as 'Internal Alchemy' or Nei gong. This is an ever-deepening approach using advanced breathing and subtle movements combined with the cultivation of deep meditative states and stillness practice. Marc draws upon his own extensive experience to teach beginners and more experienced students alike.
