Course outline


As a change from his normal weekend courses on the Holy Island, Bob will deliver a week long course, providing the perfect opportunity to learn the much requested “Poem”, a Qigong Form enjoyed by many Teachers and students of Daoyin Yangsheng Gong.

As the mainstay of the week’s tuition, “The Poem” is a beautiful Qigong practice which, performed frequently, will enhance your physical balance, and wellbeing.

In addition, several evening sessions will introduce participants to the ancient Chinese method of health massage known as Tuina or tui-na (pronounced twee-nah) which is one of the four main branches of traditional Chinese medicine, along with acupuncture, Qigong, and Chinese herbal medicine. The Tuina sessions will focus on specific muscle groups and will be underpinned by a Qigong exercise particular to that anatomical region.

The programme will include an hour after breakfast each day working with the resident volunteer community, helping with kitchen, housecare and garden tasks

This retreat is suitable for all levels. If you have mobility issues or issues with balance, please contact Bob

Bob has been coming to the island from the very start of the Holy Isle Project. He very kindly donates all his fee to the Holy Isle Project.
