Balancing Emotions in Challenging Times
Dealing with the roller-coaster of emotions in everyday life can be challenging enough in ordinary times, but we are not in ordinary times right now. Millions of people have struggled to come to terms with or are still finding ways to cope with the aftermath of the pandemic, ongoing viral infections, restrictions, losses and inconveniences.
Just as we started to see a glimmer of ease and relative safety from severe illness for many, we were struck by the devasting news of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Our hearts pour out to all who are suffering in conflict.
If you are finding these troubling times difficult or overwhelming, then we at OneQi would like to help you.
For thousands of years Qigong has been used to successfully deal with conflict, release deep held emotions, feeling stuck and the pain that often arises from emotional disturbance.
This recorded session for anyone looking to feel freer and more balanced in these challenging times.
One Qi is a pioneering hub of Qigong/Chi Kung teachers in the UK. Exploring similarities whilst embracing differences makes for inspiring exchanges, the result of which is this current collaboration. One Qi is here to offer you easy-access embodied practices backed up by salient science to help you understand how your system is wired to heal, and how balance is key to your vitality and health.
Numerous studies and direct experience shows that Qigong directly impacts:
Too much stress is detrimental to health, as is too much worry. Learning how to better deal with and release held tension is one of the keys to good health healthy and enjoyable living. Qigong is excellent in helping release stress and worry
Research shows that anxiety decreased significantly for the participants who practiced Qigong compared to an active exercise group.
Just like a small amount stress is good for us, so is a small amount of inflammation. However, when inflammation becomes chronic it can damage healthy cells, tissues, and organs leading to dis-ease. Qigong helps reduce our stress and inflammation responses, leading to improved system function and well-being
Chronic pain and continuous stress are linked. As Qigong helps release held tensions and reduce inflammation, so it provides ways to manage, increase tolerance and reduction of pain
Movement is medicine. When pain or stress is experienced it is often difficult to move with ease, leading to further disfunction or dis-ease. Qigong helps restore healthy flow, increase strength, stamina, ease of movement and regain natural balance.
Managing strong emotions is harder when under increased stress, worry or anxiety. Qigong offers you simple and easy to learn methods to reset your systems, release or deal with strong emotions, reclaim equilibrium and a felt sense of deeper inner calm and peace
One of the most important aspects of health, overlooked by the western approach is energy (Qi). Yet millions of people suffer from low energy, energy depletion and lacklustre. Positive health requires good energy flow, vitality and resilience. Qigong helps restore and increase your vital energy.

Alessandro Ferullo- Qigong teacher. From a young age, I was always searching for deeper meaning in life, often feeling disconnected and uninspired. Then, one weekend in 1988, I attended my first Qigong weekend when for the first time, I sensed an energy beyond my own between my hands .
I’ve been practicing this 4,000 year old Art ever since, a self Healing form called Hua Gong with my teacher Zhi Xing Wang. Qigong helps us take more control of our health and wellbeing has been invaluable to share with others particularly in these past 2-3 most challenging years we have all been through.
