On 11th November 2018, Sifu Carlton Hill who has been teaching Taichi and QiGong for over 40 years, conducted an interactive workshop for members and Friends of New Acropolis, at the Colaba centre of New Acropolis in Mumbai.
Sifu Carlton explained that Qi, or Chi, is energy, and Gong is skill. Hence, QiGong can be explained as the dance form of life, in which everything emerges from energy, which penetrates the human body through meridian pathways. When flowing smoothly, it removes blocks and harmonises with the breath in order to connect to an Infinite Universal energy. This is said to benefit the practitioner physically, mentally and spiritually.
Participants were carefully guided through a series of exercises to gain first-hand experience of Chi.
