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.


It all starts with the bodyIf the physical body is out of balance, the subtle energies cannot flow properly. Through powerful qigong forms, we increase energy and vitality in the body and lay the groundwork for our inner exploration.


Qigong (“energy work”; “breath work”) is the art of cultivating the subtle breath (qì ). Through the internal arts we learn to anchor the breath and cultivate the energy body for increased flow and balance. This also prepares us for meditation.


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. For this reason, we start by building a strong foundation in the body. Using specific qigong forms that promote health in the physical and energetic body, we lay the groundwork for our Kung Fu Breathwork.

1. flow and health as foundation

In this Frame we start building a foundation for our qigong practice (practice, posture, principles). We explore the Daoist path and learn the basics of the internal arts.

Baduanjin is a practice that promotes physical and mental health by stimulating the body's major energy pathways (meridians). We also learn the Health qigong, a form that helps release blockages.

2: open heart and subtle breath

Building on the foundations, we continue learning about the principles underlying our practice. Through coordinated breathing and gentle movements we open the heart and relax the mind.

We learn Smiling Heart qigong as well as seated daoyin practices to increase our somatic awareness and experience of the subtle breath (what is known as qi or prana).

PART 2: inner breathWORK

Once the body is fit, we turn to the subtle breath. 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 ).

3: anchoring the breath

Learning to anchor the breath in the lower abdomen is a crucial step in our practice as it prevents agitation of the the nervous system and mind. This process reduces stress and lays the groundwork for spiritual development.

We learn about mindfulness, relaxation and breath awareness as ways to allow reality to unfold naturally.

4: building the lower dantian

Next, we let the breath settle and build a container for the qi in the lower abdomen 丹田 (dāntián; "elixir field"). This is a crucial step in all neigong systems as it enables storage and circulation of qi in the body.

We learn to allow the sinking of the qi in a seated posture. We explore the belly as a refuge for the breath.

5: cultivating qi

"Our practice is based in qi" - we explore this principle and go deeper into the understanding and experience of qi. We cultivate awareness of the subtle breath through seated neigong.

We learn "lian qi ba fa gong", a wonderful seated qigong form where we use our hands and awareness to bring balance and healing to the body.

October 19


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. 

6: internal alchemy

Rather than striving to still the mind, we discover the energy behind thoughts and emotions. We ask ourselves a question: can this energy be transmuted to support my health and growth? This is what we explore through the process of Daoist alchemy.

We practice making space and staying with our emotions through meditations. We also learn principles for how to transmute the energy behind destructive habit patterns.

7: relaxing into our natural state

We are on the path of becoming natural and awake human beings. We do not enter meditation through effort or intention but through the principle of wu wei, or "non-striving". The physical breath provide a gateway to the subtle breath, which connects us with the natural state.

"Spirituality is the burning of that which is false" - this is the way of the Daoist water method of meditation. By learning to release whatever inhibits us, we discover peace that is inherent to the depths of our being.
