Tai Chi/Chi Kung – Thursdays 11am (1hr)
Belinda Ackermann is an artist for whom Chi Kung is an extension of a lifelong curiosity with how the body communicates and what it’s saying; whether still or moving. She trained as a theatre designer at Central St. Martins and has designed extensively for dance and performance art. Her interest in internal marshal arts were ignited in 2001 when she discovered Shadow Yoga (a practice she continues with Jana Appleyard in Croatia). An accredited teacher with Elemental College of Chi Kung she has explored alchemy and Ba Gua with Oleg Tcherne; Taoist meditation with Shi Jing of the British Taoist association; Primordial Qigong with Kenneth Cohen and is currently ‘going deeper’ with John Stirks.
Her teaching style is clear and intuitive and her delight in the playful nature of the animal qigong forms is infectious!
2009 she set up ‘tonic for the heart’ to promote her chi kung/tai chi classes & workshops www.tonicfortheheart.com
