Taiji (Tai Chi) & Qigong (Chi Kung)
Laura Ichajapanich

MSc (Chinese Medicine), MBCCMA

Laura has 16 years experience as a taiji and qigong teacher in London. Her primary focus is on Yang Sheng or health cultivation, a key component of Chinese medicine which requires the smooth flow of qi around the body. An awareness of qi (vital or functional energy) can be achieved through taiji and qigong, together with balance, posture, calming the shen (mind/spirit), developing internal strength and a sense of dantian (centre). In one-to-one sessions Laura will assess your health needs and tailor an exercise routine to suit your condition, eg, Dao Yin sets for the Heart, Diabetes, Liver, Lung; a more martial routine such as the Chen 19-move taiji form; or the simple but effective 5-minute meditation. This is something for you to take with you and practice on your own. Find out more on Laura’s website (

Laura works on Thursdays and Fridays. Call Laura on 07939 043580 to book
