“When it (the Qi) goes down it becomes quiet. When it becomes quiet it will concentrate. When it becomes concentrated it will begin to sprout. After it has sprouted it will grow. As it grows, it will rise up (to the upper regions). When it has risen up it will reach the crown of the head. Above, it will press against the crown of the head. Below, it will press downwards. Whoever follows this will live, whoever acts contrary to it will die.”

First document of “Dao Yin” - carved in two Jade stones about 600 b.C.

Qi Gong builds the foundation for any kind of bodywork, work with energies and martial arts. It embraces all levels of human life and of the body (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual).

Even though Qi Gong, unlike Yoga for instance, is not well known in the West, it is a very complex and complete system. Qi Gong has a history dating back thousands of years and its teachings have been passed on, through the times, from masters of many generations to their students.

In this way the methods have been proved, improved, modified and adjusted, all still serving the same purpose: to live life happily, healthy, in congruence with yourself, in harmony with others and the earth (environment).

If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to.

Qi Gong and Taijiquan teacher Ron Timm practices internal martial arts


When it comes to (inner) martial arts, most people think of fighting and rough violence, physical confrontation – they see how sheer physical strength overcomes the weak violently, possibly with some tricks or magical superhuman powers. That is not at all what it is about. That’s not how we perceive things…
