Lishi is an ancient art that originated in China. The holistic system incorporates breath work and the mindful movements of Tai Chi, Yoga, Qi Gong and Kung Fu. It promotes healthy living and is ideal for males or females who are athletes or unfit.
Lishi develops self-awareness, well-being, self confidence, physical fitness, relieves stress and is exhilarating fun!

At your first class you will be introduced to principles and exercises that have stood the test of time. They have been proven to work for both men and women for thousands of years so you can feel confident they will work for you too.
Through a range of Taoist exercises with some similarities to Yoga, Tai Chi and Kungfu, here’s just some of what you will discover….
The Power of Relaxation
I will help you prove to yourself that tension and stress actually make you weaker. I will then show you ways to rid yourself of this forever and prove how being relaxed doubles your strength instantly.
The Keys to Greater Vitality
Building on lessons of relaxation I hand you the Keys to Greater Vitality by revealing special Taoist ‘Dao Yin’ breathing techniques.
Moving with Stillness
Learn to focus your mind and develop incredible concentration through mindful exercise that promotes greater calm and harmony between mind and body.
Raise the Tempo
True fitness is achieved by increasing the intensity of how you currently exercise. Taoists in China realised this thousands of years ago and developed exercises that are safe yet challenging for all people. It doesn’t matter how fit or unfit you are when you walk through the door to the class our exercises are guaranteed to exercise your heart and lungs, burn fat and tone and strengthen your muscles so that you have more energy available at all times.
Chi – Your Vital Force
You will be introduced to the natural energy within your body that has always been available to you. Exercising and utilising your “chi” or “qi” is the very essence of Lishi and brings greater benefits than you can realise.
Self-Defense that is fun and simple
The principles of Lishi are very effective as a system of self-defense and step-by-step you will gain greater coordination and confidence by working with a partner to test what you are learning in a supportive environment.
Once you experience the benefits of lishi, you will want to make “feeling fit, healthy and energised” your natural way. We will spend time learning and practising exercises so that Lishi becomes a natural part of your lifestyle so you can draw on the benefits whenever you want, wherever you are.
