What is Therapeutic Qigong?
Therapeutic Qigong is a type of self-healing and is powerfully energising as well as therapeutic. We will mainly focus on a form of Therapeutic Qigong called Wild Goose Qigong during the holiday. This amazing Qigong form feels light, peaceful and relaxing to do and resembles a Tai Chi form. Being a totally unique type of Qigong it imitates the movements of a carefree bird and involves slow, flowing moves to absorb positive 'chi' energy from your surroundings as well as some faster moves to release negative energy. After practising Therapeutic Qigong you normally feel calm, healthy and revitalised.
La Gomera is one of Spain's Canary Islands and lies off the Western coast of Africa. It has virtually year round sunshine and is a short ferry ride away from Los Cristianos in Tenerife. This lesser known and unspoiled island has diverse, scenic landscapes and is ideal for nature-lovers and those wishing to explore the many hiking trails. There are steep mountainous regions and deep valleys, causing this small island to have many micro-climates. It was originally formed through volcanic activity, although this ceased millions of years ago. The scenery is spectacular and it's possible to see how volcanoes have formed the island.
If we're lucky we may come across the fascinating and very unusual whistling language, 'El Silbo' which is totally unique to La Gomera. It is rarely heard on the island these days, however it's thousands of years old and shepherds used to use it to communicate with eachother down the valleys while miles apart. It is a complete language in itself and is protected and taught in schools to prevent it from dying out.
The Qigong holiday will take place in the warm, sunny South West part of the island by the coast and there will be plenty of free time to relax, practise your Qigong, go on a dolphin watching boat trip or explore this fascinating island.
How do I get to La Gomera?
Getting to La Gomera is easy. Most people arrive in La Gomera by taking the ferry from Los Cristianos in Tenerife (fly to Tenerife South). The ferry takes approximately 50 minutes and is an adventure in itself.
Ryanair and Easyjet both offer reasonably priced flights to Tenerife South from the UK and beyond. Jet2 also offers flights. The Skyscanner website is often a good site to look at to compare prices.
More details of how to get to La Gomera will be sent to you once you've booked up for the Holiday. Please feel free to also email or call Hazel if you'd like to discuss travel arrangements or would like to chat about the Holiday Retreat.
