Zhan Zhuang (pronounced Jam Jong) or ‘Standing like a Tree’ is a form of Chi Kung or Energy Exercise.
It is the art of standing still in carefully designed postures, not only to train the body and mind, but also to build up and move natural energy around the body. This increase and movement of natural energy around the body has the benefit of improving health and well-being.
For many years this exercise system was shrouded in secrecy in China; it was brought to the West by Master Lam Kam Chuen, author of ‘The Way of Energy’.
Benefits of practising Zhan Zhuang include:-
Increased body fitness, including strengthening of muscles and core muscle groups.
Increased flexibility of muscles, tendons and joints.
Relief from aches & pains.
Mental and bodily relaxation with an increased ability to deal with stress.
Strengthened immune system.
Increased energy levels & zest for life.
Greater creativity in approach to life – due to increased energy and clarity of mind.
Beginners are very welcome.
