He is a teacher of mindfulness, meditation, qigong and the internal arts. He brings his experience across many disciplines together in his work as a coach, facilitator and trainer. Besides the internal arts, he is certified as Vipassana teacher under Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach.

The first thing I noticed was your energy. There is an inner stillness emanating, which supports my sense of safety. You have an awareness and attunement which allows me to stay in presence.

Kung fu breathwork
無爲; wú wéi = non-striving
When we hear “breathwork” we may think of energising breathing techniques that put us into altered states of consciousness.
Used correctly, forceful breathing can promote health and emotional release – but it is not the focus of this training.
功夫; gōngfu = any skill or art acquired and perfected through practice
气功; qìgōng = breathwork, life force cultivation
Kung Fu Breathwork refers to the inner art of mastering the subtle breath and resting into our being.
Meditation is about finding peace within ourselves. Through Daoist and Zen practices, we start a process of releasing blockages and resting into our natural state of Being. We learn the art of listening and releasing through non-striving.
PART 1: The body
If the physical body is out of balance, the subtle energies cannot flow properly.
Stagnation of qi prevents our organs from functioning properly and manifests as symptoms and disease.
A strong foundation in the physical body is the groundwork for our inner cultivation.
Through powerful qigong forms, we increase energy and vitality in the physical body and energetic body.
PART 2: inner breathWORK
Building on our foundation.
A key aspect of the Daoist internal arts known as 內功 (nèigōng; “inner work”) is the cultivation of the breath because it serves as a bridge between our physical body and our energy body (qi ). Through coordinated breathing and gentle movements, we increase our somatic awareness and cultivation of the subtle breath (what is known as qi or prana).
PART 3: MEDITATION
Once the breath is anchored and we are familiar with the circulation of qi, we are ready to enter into meditation. Meditation is about peace. Although we keep chasing after things in the external world, on some level we know that we never find true peace in any external object. Meditation is about finding what we long for inside of ourselves.
