Qigong Classes in Bristol
Qigong (pronounced Chi-Gong) translates as ‘energy work’ and is an ancient Chinese form of exercise. It is a discipline that involves the mind, breath and movement to create a calm, natural balance of energy. It’s a beautiful, slow, meditative healing art which promotes health, balance, energy, awareness and relaxation. Learn to find stillness in motion.
Qigong is beneficial for anyone who wants to improve their health and wellbeing. It’s especially good for people with low mood, anxiety and depression and for older and socially isolated people. This class can be done seated or standing. No previous experience is necessary.

I have never attended an online class before, how do I do it?
Before you book and pay for a class or membership, you’ll simply need to register and create a Greenway Centre account.
You can either purchase an ALL-IN! Membership and attend as many classes as you like or pay for classes individually. Once you have booked into a class please read the following tips to help you to have a smooth experience.
Once you have booked a class you will receive an email with a link to the class. Each group fitness class email link is individual to the class and can only be used to access one class.
If you are booking lots of classes check you have the exact link.
You should not be asked for a passcode as this is embedded in the link. If you are asked for a passcode it is likely you have the wrong link, check and click again.
At busy times you may need to click the link a few times so it is good to come in 5 minutes before the class starts to avoid the last minute rush.
Once in check you have your sound and video on. These are small icons and on most devices found on the left hand bottom corner of the screen. If they have a red line through them they are off, click once and they should come on.
Make sure your device volume is unmuted and turned up or use an external speaker for improved sound.
Once the class has started it is difficult for the instructor to help you so ring us on 0117 9503335.
