LOHAN QIGONG SYDNEY
PROGRAM

Lohan Qigong is a health exercise and meditation wellness program which follows Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles and has roots in the Shaolin/Buddhist and Daoist traditions.

Regulated breathing (Qi) and gentle movements (Gong) combine to rejuvenate the body.
