Optimize Your Immune System
If like many people, you are looking to improve your immune system to effectively manage any infection, and help yourself remain healthy and active whatever age, then you will find this special OneQi Qigong collaboration invaluable.
We will be exploring how stress and chronic inflammation disable natural health, and where Qigong - energy management practices - can help us untangle habits which can cause dis-ease, revealing the innate ability we each have to heal and find our flow.
Join us for a good hour where 4 of the UK's top Qigong teachers will share alongside one another a series of practices for morning, daytime and the evening.
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 your immune system is key to your vitality and health.
Why Does a Healthy, Optimized Immune System Matter?
Too much stress weakens the immune system, as does too much worry. Learning how to better deal with and release stress is one of the keys to good health and a strong immune system. Qigong is excellent in helping release stress and worry
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. Qigong helps reduce our stress and inflammation responses, leading to improved system function and well-being
Chronic pain and continuous stress negatively affect the immune system function. Qigong helps release held tensions and pain, leading to restored immune system function
Movement is medicine. When we are in pain or stressed out, we often struggle to move with ease, leading to further disfunction and strain on the immune system. Qigong helps restore healthy flow, movement, and balance.
When dealing with stress, pain, worry or illness we can lose a felt sense of connection and belonging. Meaningful connection is key to a healthy immune system. You will be joining a supportive group of people who understand the challenges. Plus, Qigong makes it much easier to feel open to connection and purpose.
One of the most important aspects of health, overlooked by the western approach to health is energy. Yet millions of people suffer from low energy, energy depletion and lacklustre. A healthy immune system requires good energy flow, and Qigong helps restore and increase 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.
