Mindful movement at Boyd

09 Jul 2015

Mindful movement at Boyd Image

Southbank locals are invited to explore the art of mindful movement at the Boyd Community Hub.

Instructor Nicole Betts will this month introduce the ancient Chinese practice of Qigong to the hub.

Dating back 4000 years, Qigong is a self-healing and exercise therapy used in traditional Chinese medicine.

Combining body awareness, breath, movement and mindfulness, Qigong classes consist of acupressure, slow stretches and gently flowing movements.

Ms Betts discovered the practice of Qigong after closing the door on her 15-year real estate career in search of something more.

“I left my unintentional career behind in search of what it was I really wanted to do, something I would feel excited to wake up to each day,” she said.

Over the next few years Ms Betts said she experienced many different jobs and voluntary roles, which eventually led her to discover Qigong.

“At first I brought this practice into my daily life for my own personal benefit, but quickly I found myself sharing it with others,” Ms Betts said.

“My personal practice led me to training to become an accredited Qigong and mindfulness meditation teacher.”

This month Ms Betts will launch a six-week term of integrative Qigong at the Boyd Community Hub.

Classes will be held on Tuesday nights from 7pm until 8pm starting July 21.

The six-week term is $110 and readers who sign-up can bring a friend for free.
