Nowadays, the world is fast moving and can be very stressful. Meditation forms such as Qigong, Tai chi, meditation, bodywork and Yoga are very helpful to balance us again, taking out the pace of our everyday life.

The basic principle in yoga is to find our true nature and our inner self through meditation, concentration and breath in order to unite the body and soul. The exercises are performed slowly and consciously, connected with the breath.
Yoga reduces stress in all parts of the body. The immune system and the autonomic nervous system are strengthened, posture improves, perception and concentration increase. Yoga coordinates both hemispheres of the brain and body. Energetic obstacles in the body dissolve and our life energy (prana) can flow freely again. We experience new vitality, joy de vivre, self-confidence, self-esteem and mental clarity.

Tai chi and Qigong with Jürgen – slow movement for your inner flow
Modern research has found that Tai Chi has positive effects on balancing control, fitness and flexibility. In addition, the slow movements of martial arts have been claimed to increase the general health state and reduce physical instability.
Tai Chi is an art which cultivates and promotes physical, emotional and mental development. As certain specified principles of body movement are merging with spiritual knowledge about the energy structure of the human body, Tai Chi is on the mark with Yoga from India and Eurhythmy from Europe.
The body therapist Juergen has been instructing Tai-Chi for decades and is helping people in Europe and Asia to enjoy a balanced life.
Qigong – set your energy free
The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced chee and is usually translated as life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe. The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, means accomplishment, or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality.
Qigong is an integration of physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intentions. It creates awareness and influences dimensions of your being that are not part of traditional exercise programs. Most exercises do not involve the meridian system used in acupuncture nor do they emphasize the importance of adding mind intent and breathing techniques to physical movements. When these dimensions are added, the benefits of exercise increase exponentially.
The smooth, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions.
