QiFlow Vitality Day



QiFlow Vitality


Step out of the hustle and bustle of academic life and embrace the transformative power of Zhineng Qigong during the exclusive QiFlow Vitality Day.


Are you looking for a way to reduce the stress of academic life and increase your resilience? For scientists, the quest for balance is crucial, and this is where Zhineng Qigong comes in as a powerful tool. As an experienced PhD coach, avid practitioner, and teacher of Zhineng Qigong, I introduce you to this ancient art that reduces stress, boosts energy, and builds emotional resilience.


Scientifically supported

Qigong has a positive effect on stress reduction and overall health. Studies show impressive results in both physical and mental well-being: noticeable improvements in blood pressure, cardiovascular system, heart rate, lung capacity, immune system, and sleep quality. Other beneficial effects include less fatigue and fewer anxious and depressive symptoms. Cognitive skills often see improvement as well.


Time-efficient and effective

You don’t need years of intensive training to experience the benefits of Qigong. Even a modest investment of training for 10 weeks, 3 times a week for half an hour, has measurable effects, as evidenced by scientific literature. This makes Qigong especially suitable for busy scientists who want to see results quickly.


Not a luxury but a necessity: disconnecting for physical and mental health

Many academics suffer from chronic stress, which can lead to various health problems, from immune disorders to cardiovascular diseases and depression. Bringing your body and mind to rest, as you do with Qigong, is not a luxury but an essential need for the well-being of both body and mind.


The Wisdom of Zhineng Qigong: a dive into the origin

Behind Zhineng Qigong lies a rich history and philosophy that dates back to ancient China. It is a movement practice and meditation in one, developed by Dr. Pang Ming, a Taijiquan grandmaster with a background in both Chinese Traditional Medicine and Western medicine. His center, the ‘Huaxia Zhineng Qigong Training and Research Centre,’ was a hotbed of research and development of this unique practice.


Connected to nature: the power of Qi

Zhineng Qigong is based on the principle of Qi, the life energy that pervades everything. Through gentle movements, breathing exercises, and meditation, Zhineng Qigong stimulates the flow of Qi through the energy channels in the body, known as meridians. This consciously builds a Qi field, allowing you to nourish yourself with Hunyuan Qi, the pure universal energy.


Philosophy and practice: ‘Qi follows the mind’

With Zhineng Qigong, you learn to understand the interaction between body and mind. The principle ‘Qi follows the mind’ is central, where you can influence the flow of Qi in your body with your thoughts. This awareness not only helps you in Qigong practice but also has a positive impact on your daily life.
