What others are saying about the Qigong classes
A place to share students thoughts and feedback after a Chi-Fit class experience.
"I attend Chris' Qigong for Fibromyalgia class. I have definitely noticed an improvement in my symptoms and my self esteem has increased because of this. It is a lovely, friendly group and Chris is professional but approachable and kind. I look forward to each session and highly recommend it to other Fibro sufferers. I now feel more like a Fibro Warrior! Thank you, Chris."
"Attending Chris' qigong class for about two years has improved my health immeasurably, reversing knee arthritis and improving a general state of well-being. Chris provides simple but profound exercises which are easily learned so that daily practice at home becomes straightforward. Yes, simple but profound so that the weekly classes challenge one to deepen the relaxation and further coordinate the breathing so as to improve the effectiveness of this ancient art. These classes are highly recommended"
"I met with some old pals last Friday night and they were amazed at how well I looked, they said I looked 10 years younger they couldn’t believe the change in me. I told them it was down to qigong and what practising everyday has done for me.
Thanks for everything and showing me the way to finding my true self, and I do absolutely feel amazing, the first time in my life I have felt like this."
"I have had a number of injuries over the years and find that after Chi Fit session that I feel more relaxed, the pain of the injuries subsides and I sleep really well."
"Chris has excellent knowledge of what he is teaching and I thoroughly enjoy the session. I am looking forward to getting back to Chi Fit in January. Another member of the group, complimented me on how my posture had changed so its a very big positive step for me Chi Fit. Thanks Chris"
"We all loved it! Sherrie had a headache which had gone. Shell was the most relaxed I've seen her in weeks and her back wasn't aching. I was asleep as soon my head hit the pillow and today is the first day in months my knee isn't swollen. Can't wait till the next session :)"
"Inspirational!... classes with Chris have changed my way of thinking mentally and physically"
“Qigong classes with Chris have been amazing and I feel like I am on a new path with something that is so beneficial to my health and well being.”
“I’ve noticed the positive effects on my well being already”
"The walk I went on was organised by Buddhafield. They call it a Yatra, a pilgrimage and were running it for the second time.
We were 40 people walking silently in line from somewhere near Honiton to Glastonbury roughly 60 –65 miles over 6 days, camping each night along the way, mostly in fields. The people were a hardy lot I have to say ranging in age from about 30 to 67. I was probably the oldest.
Not in my wildest dreams did I imagine I could go on something like this as my back had been so bad for about two years since I broke my wrist in 2014.
I credit your classes entirely for my recovery as I haven’t done anything else to help me.
I tried Qi Gong in the past and not stuck with it because I didn’t feel the classes equipped me with doing the movements on my own. I like that you stick with a sequence, the hand-outs and the personal attention you give to posture etc. Invaluable!
You know the body superbly well and what you teach works.
I would go as far as saying that you have given me a new lease of life and I thank you very much."
"After feeling fed up that even Yoga had proved difficult with my stiff and painful joints, I did a bit of research and felt that Qi Gong may be an alternative I could try. One term in and I have found that this gentle exercise option is helping me to feel calm, more flexible and so I will definitely be carrying on. There is a lot to learn, but I'm excited about the results so far. Thanks Chris."
"I have been attending Qi Gong classes with Chris for 2 years. He is an excellent instructor, his style promotes confident learning by not over- correcting at first and introducing the detail to continiously improve as we go along. He also takes individual differences and health problems into account. Classes motivating and fun."
"A few years of training in Qigong with Chris have resulted in the termination of arthritic knee pain and a distinct improvement in general health such that at 72 years of age I feel significantly more sprightly than when in my 60s. Chris inculcates a series of simple exercises which are easy to remember and thus incorporate into one's daily routine. One must be patient because the benefits are slow and progressive but deep and profound. Thanks Chris and the wisdom of China!"
I was feeling fed up with stiff painful joints that made even Yoga difficult. After a little research, I felt QiGong classes may help. One term in and I have found that I'm delighted with the results from this gentle method. I will be continuing, as I'm confident that regular practice and learning more BDJ movements will increase the health benefits I have found. Thanks Chris."
"Really great Qigong classes. Brilliant way of calming your mind and getting fit at the same time"
"I had a deep 'gratitude' moment this morning doing some tai chi after the qigong. I suddenly realized how fluid my movements were and how deep and painless my stances were compared to my pre-Chi-Fit days when tai chi was a painful chore (and therefore I tended to give it a perpetual miss...). Thank you to Chris and the wisdom of qigong."
"Qigong has made me feel more tranquil, 🙂😊😊 and healthy, with a deep sense of well-being. I feel less stressed, more able to cope with the tribulations of life and I am sleeping better. My mind is calmer and my whole outlook seems more positive and peaceful. I also feel this is projected onto the people around you too, through your positive presence. My happy attitude is even more optimistic and joyous. I feel fitter from the inside out and my body shape is changing for the better. I am aware that I speak a lot and I feel that I am starting to listen more and speak less. I have increased energy, vitality and youthfulness. People have commented that I look really well and ask me what I am doing. I seem to have a twinkle in my eyes and I feel a glow in my skin. I feel myself wanting to eat more healthily, my digestion seems better and as a result I have lost weight. This is the first year in my long teaching career that I have not missed a day due to illness because of everything I have previously mentioned. Qigong is a life changer!"
“Having been unable to walk unaided for nearly a year due to spinal injury I found Christopher by chance after a friend suggested I try Qigong. Within 4 weeks I was able to stand for an entire class and was walking short distances unaided. It is still early days for me but I have been blown away by the improved strength, stamina and mobility that I am now enjoying”
"it's improved wellbeing, both physically & mentally...this can be measurable as well as just 'feeling good'. For example, improved sleep quality, less fatigue, improved digestive function, better able to handle the challenges that life throws, less disease, improved focus, I could go on. It is hard to measure these things scientifically when you have a sample size of one & there are many variables, but from my personal experience, I know my physical & mental health has improved when I regularly practice. I am convinced qigong practice has improved my running & prevented injury because I am working with internal energy, not just the muscles that support my body & enable it to move. "
"I've been doing Qigong with Chris for 2 years now. I live with ME/CFS and have noticed improvement in my muscle tone and post-crash recovery times. Classes are fun and informative. I would highly recommend Qigong with Chris for anyone wanting to improve their health and fitness."
