Thank you for your interest in Lishi which is the Chinese name for our activity.

We hope that this webpage will make you want to join our class and give it a go!

It’s really difficult to say what Lishi is in a few words as it is very ancient and has hidden depths or layers rather like an onion does!

What is Lishi?
Lishi Yin Arts consist of slow, soft movements and exercises to help nourish the body so you can develop an overflow of energy. It comes from Weihai in north east China and is thousands of years old!

Lishi involves using your whole body and so you will benefit from it in many ways physically, mentally and emotionally. Most of all Lishi is enjoyable and so you come out of class feeling good with yourself.
