These interactive extended sessions allow students to learn more than ‘how’ but also ‘why’ we do certain things in yoga.

Victor has been practising yoga since 2002. He began his Yin Yoga experience with Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers and now blends Chinese Medicine, Qi-gong, Tai-ji and other ancient Chinese movement techniques into his teaching. Victor believes that Yin Yoga is the original way in which ancient exercises are being done.

He emphasises breathing and Qi cultivation in his work. Victor has vast knowledge on Indian philosophies, Chinese philosophies, Eastern and Western approaches on movement techniques. He hopes to bridge ancient knowledge with modern perspective. He is also a keen follower of Tibetan Buddhism, Taoist and Indian Tantra. More on him at www.yinyogainasia.com.

What is Qigong: Qigong is a way of energy circulation in the body. It requires the body to be relaxed to find its organic movement. The joints need to move in their natural range of motion without creating resistance.

According to Qigong masters, “If one aims to cultivate Qi, then no strength should be engaged. When one aims to activate strength, then Qi will not be cultivated”.Our arms is the part of the body that guides and floats Yang energy in the body. They will be loosened up in order to effectively guide the Qi. Our journey will begin by working to loosen neck and shoulder intensively.

You will achieve overall flexibility in the upper body and strength in the lower body. The Qigong intends to provide yin-yang balance and strengthening of the internal organs over time. Join Victor to realise the flow of your Qi.
