Qi Gong Benefits: Many students (including myself) find that by attending just 1 Qi Gong class a week - we maintain flexibility, our bodies are more comfortable, our range of movement is increased, many health concerns disappear.
Another result is that if you have a concern that is troubling you, by 'bringing' it into the Qi Field at the commencement of the class, usually by the end of the class all the answers you require are there. problems seem to solve themselves, answers to troubles appear and by the end of aeach class a sense of peacefullness is achieved.
By attending weekly classes - the students find they 'flow with life' far more easily with concerns and troubles finding their own solutions and opportunities presenting themselves.
- Tone up,
- calm mind
- Increase health
- Spiritual Awakening
- Personal Awareness
- Grace, inner peace
- Correct breathing
Prerequisites: none, suitable for all ages & fitness levels
I'm not that fit or flexible right now: We all have to start somewhere - you will be welcomed & able to join in at what ever level you are comfortable with. Our students attend in all different shapes, sizes, backgrounds & abilities.
You will not be pushed to go beyond your capabilities (although we will always encourage you to 'reach for the stars')
Discounts: each class is $18 on a casual basis, alternatively you may book and pay per term which reduces the class fees to $15pc (generally if you will miss 3 or less classes per term it is cheaper to book per term).
Term fees can be prorated to when you begin - eg - if you are 3 weeks into a term, book & pay online & the first 3 weeks will be issued as a refund to you - alternatively email us for a prorated invoice.
Missing classes: Some times we need to miss a class. If you have booked and paid per term, simply turn up at another class the following week for free, this way you can always attend the number of classes you have paid for. (classes are offered at several time slots each week)
Uniforms: Please ensure you have:
- foot coverings (as a sign of respect for your teacher, bare feet are not acceptable) these may be socks, indoor slippers or we can order you Qi Gong shoes - $28 pr
Should you arrive without foot coverings - please ask to borrow some slippers
On warm days we may take Qi Gong classes outdoors - please bring some flat outdoor shoes you can exercise in
- Stretch trousers or long shorts that are comfortable or allow you to easily move

Preferably a Renascent Qi Gong T Shirt - available at the Renascent Centre for $10 (med/lg/XL sizings)
Qi Gong Gradings - At your 2nd class, you will be given a Qi Gong book with space for your attendances to be recorded. Once you attend a minimum of 8 classes in a particular form of Qi Gong - you will be able to apply for proficiency (which basically means that your teacher will check your form and offer suggestions for improvements or pass your form in this style). Upon successful completion of each form, you are awarded a certificate of proficiency, which is also accredited towards the certificate of Qi Gong Cultivation Practitioner & the Diploma of Qi Gong Cultivation Practitioner.
In order to prepare for their grading, the student should take notes of the style of form in their class, meet with Mr Mitchell to clarify notes (if required) & take home a practice DVD to check their form is accurate)
Once prepared, the student hands the proficiency slip to their teacher at the commencement of the class for assessment - students that cannot attend in person may film their form and send a copy in for assessment.
Payment for assessment is by donation.
This provides the opportunity to be assessed & graded on your skill levels, competence, diligence, humility, perseverance & knowledge.
Whilst not required for the attendance of the practice class, the students that desire to be assessed on their training, now have the ability to ascend through several levels of competency. On successful passing of each level, the student will be awarded a certificate in that style of Qi Gong.
Higher level students may be awarded private tuition.
Meanwhile the Qi Gong practice class will continue with some students attending for fun & their own development & some advancing to the grading levels.
We look forward to seeing you in some fun practice sessions..............
