Qigong seminar with Lucy Ratzel

"Practicing Qigong creates inner peace,
a healthy and active body and a calm mind,
able to cope with daily stress and illness. ”

Chinese folk wisdom
Qigong is a combination of slow movements, conscious breathing and a pleasant presence in the body. In this two-day seminar, we will practice Qigong exercises that are easy to learn and integrate into everyday life.
It is a special combination of qigong movement sequences, stimulation of important points of acoustic pressure and facial massage. In a small theoretical part we will focus on the element of fire and thus on the heart. We'll strengthen and harmonize our hearts, in order to enjoy life more and have more balance.
Lucy Ratzel has been practicing Qigong for over 20 years. She is a teacher of Qigong and Chan Mi Gong, who learned from Master Xiao Yan Liu, Grand Master Hong Thay Lee and Dr. Zuzana Sebkova-Thaller.

She has been teaching thousands of people worldwide for over 10 years.
