The classes are similar to tai chi and through the movements we receive Qi (or Chi) energy which helps us to feel revitalised and energised. At the beginning of each class we chant for around 10 minutes, which helps to open up our energy system to receive energy. At the end of each class we do 20 minutes meditation to absorb the energy we have received and reflect on ourselves. At Jung Shim our aim is to help people increase their human energy levels enabling people to feel more vibrant, more connected to the world around them and happier! Jung Shim classes are a pivotal way of achieving this and a trial class can show you how.
