Smart Move IGung Programme™

Although "embodiment" is recently being acknowledged by western scientific and medical communities as an essential quality for individual joyfulness, stability and the evolution of humanity as a whole, it is in fact an ancient practice which has been the foundation of Taoism and Classical Chinese medicine for over 2500 years.

As the single most important underlying holistic concept of this ancient medicine, the art of embodying & cultivating life, Yang Shen (养身), is concerned with the harmonious integration of our vital substances, Jīng or body, Chi or energy, Shén or mind (精氣神).

This programme teaches exactly this integration, as well as centering and rooting (the source of power for internal martial arts) through various techniques of relaxation, posture, movement, breathing and whole body awareness.

Participants learn a unique set of skills to release daily and basal (deep seated) stress in the nervous system. This in turn regulates their inner resources and consequently generates a more vigorous, grounded and accessible full body of energy.

The Smart Move IGung Programme is a dynamic and inclusive approach to health, enabling practitioners to take control of their well being, experience a sense of personal empowerment and explore the full extent of their life’s potential.

Grounding, Rooting & Earthing - Yquan Standing Practices



We all have our unique stories but the basic thing we all share from scratch is that we are here, receiving the impact of gravity in this realm between Heaven and Earth. Finding and cultivating our centre of gravity however, goes far beyond physical balance, it also means connecting to a point of return, stability and calm when life's challenges and emotions push us off balance.

The practice of Grounding, Rooting & Earthing teaches exactly that, how to embody and balance  Heaven (Yang) and Earth (Yin) within yourself.

Earthing, grounded, centre of gravity, connectedness,inner power, health, longevity

IGung Bed Exercises – your daily easy, fast and effective routine

Learn an extraordinary and simple set that releases deep often hidden tension in your nervous system.

IGung Bed Exercises is a sequence of moves, extracted from the therapeutic principles of Tai Chi and Chi Gung, but here adapted to be performed in about 5 to 10 minutes lying on your back, in bed, as soon as you wake up.

It breaks down general stiffness in the muscle tone, lengthens the body’s fascia and stimulates the flow of Chi and blood through the acupuncture channels for optimum physical and mental health.

As well as being great for addressing long term problems, IGung also off sets the physical effects of daily stress. The Bed Exercises are also a superb complementary programme for those already committed to disciplines such as Yoga, Pilates, martial arts, cycling, running, swimming and so on.

IGung @ the Desk - Your Chill Out Workout

IGung SOS Centring - From stress and anxiety to centeredness

In oriental medicine the Earth element is our source of stability and centre.

Energetically speaking the earth is the "seed" of our physical existence and the "nutrition" that gives us strength. When we are in a state of anxiety and stress, we lose this centre and fall into obsessions, worries, stagnation, we lose the taste for life, and we stop appreciating what we have.

In this course participants learn many strategies to ground and root, anchoring the mind into the body which immediately releases stress and produces significant therapeutic effects.

When we satisfy our need for this primary "nutrition" by understanding how to cultivate the Earth element in ourselves, we experience the feeling that comes from this full centeredness as an ability to feel free and enjoy life again.

For individuals only (that have been dealing with anxiety and chronic stress and wish to reset their system)

• 4 live sessions (see Sessions page) - tailor to your specific needs + guidelines for continued practice

IGung Spinal Stretch - Grow Stronger

Ideally our spines move dynamically, easily and elastically in relation to both the adjacent connective tissue and the skeleton as a whole. This responsiveness directly impacts our strength and balance and also plays an important role in the overall health and functioning of our vital organs.

However, this natural state becomes compromised through the build up of stress, somatised emotions, sedentary work patterns and the many demands of modern living.

In this workshop you will learn how to direct gravitational force, create space between vertebrae, calibrate movement to reclaim spinal responsiveness and gain some insight into the bio-mechanics of internal martial arts.

In this way participants will effectively learn how to release and access previously trapped energy, retain their natural height and understand how to sustain the benefits of a healthy spine.

For individuals or groups of fit people that wish to lengthen their spine, become healthier and stronger:

• 2 live sessions online of 45 min each + guidelines to continued practice

IGung Tensional Headache Protocol - for the prevention and treatment of headache, tensional migraine, nausea and dizziness associated with shoulder and neck stiffness.

We women go through life under a constant torrent of hormonal changes, the demands of which take a lot of energy out of our liver. Needless to say on top of this, stress and repressed emotions also have a massive impact on the liver’s health.

In Chinese medicine we refer to this condition as "liver depletion". Symptoms include a stagnation of Chi flow everywhere in the body, but particularly the shoulder blades, neck and head section of the Shao Yang channel (Gall Bladder acupuncture meridian). This stagnation greatly impairs blood supply to these areas, causing stiffness, dizziness, headaches and in more severe cases, migraines.

This common pattern very often also affects Chi flow in the Yang Ming (Stomach acupuncture channel) which consequently cannot do its job of assisting the downward flow of digestion and instead rebels upwards causing nausea.

Having treated thousands of patients, locked into a repetitive cycle with these very same symptoms, I developed the IGung Tensional Headache Protocol to teach women of all ages, exactly how to unblock the right acupuncture points and channels to help themselves bring their body back to balance.

Through a smart sequence of self massage and movement, easily incorporated into your daily routine, this on line workshop will teach you step by step, how to build up your juice and release all the tension that saps your energy.

This course is available:

Liver Boost - for women of all ages that have mild symptoms:

• 2 live session online (individuals only) of 60 min each + bonus material reminder
