    A multi-millennial art at the service of your personal and collective performance...

    Qi Gong in history :

    A branch of Chinese medicine in its own right, just like acupuncture, traditional Qi Gong is an energetic art of breathing combined with the body and mind. It is an energetic art of health and personal development practiced in China for several millennia. Initially used by scholars and physicians to increase their life expectancy and improve the health of the imperial court, Qi Gong was later adopted by Buddhist and Taoist monks. Because of its effectiveness, it was also used by generals to boost the efficiency of the Emperor's armies (fighting or recovery skills).

    An energetic art recognized today throughout the world:

    Adapting to the needs of its time, Qi Gong has always rhymed with performance. Allowing a better efficiency and precision of the gesture, it is used today by the high level sportsmen like Alain Prost, the skier G. Balladier (gold medalist in descent in Salt Lake City), it is practised in the soccer, in the tennis, the golf and even by the spacemen to fight against the evil of the space. Providing a better emotional management, gesture or voice, it is used by artists, speakers and musicians. Preventing diseases and as an adjuvant to modern medicine, it is more and more used in hospitals all over the world (Germany, Switzerland, Mexico, United States, Japan, Australia, France...) and more and more scientific studies attest to its effectiveness. Recognized by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, companies are increasingly interested in it for individual or collective efficiency (management, stress management and better living at work...). Sophrology, for example, is largely inspired by it. 100 million people practice Qi Gong throughout the world, including 200,000 in France.

    Companies are discovering its benefits:

    The regular practice of Qi Gong helps to reduce absenteeism, RSI and accidentology in organizations, improves the atmosphere at work, the motivation and commitment of teams, the psychological and relational performance of employees, the management of emotions and stress, strengthens the acceptance of change, stimulates creativity etc. Corporate Qi Gong allows to guide the techniques according to the job and the skills to be worked on. In fine, Qi Gong contributes to the improvement of the image and performance of the organization, while helping to calm the climate and atmosphere at work. Read "Qi Gong in the workplace" to learn more.

    The style practiced is essentially that of Long Men/QuanZhen via Michel Bremont's Tam Tao School and Gérard Edde's "Dragon Céleste", the Shaolin monastery, Pr Wang De Feng, Me Pang's Zhi Neng. Other inspirations come from Me Mantak Chia, Jerry Alan Johnson, Jean Pierre Krasensky, Liao Li Yin or Amaël Ferrando.

    Participation in Qi Gong workshops is based on voluntary work and conviviality.
