Kuan Yin Qigong Teacher Training

RETREAT in PORTUGAL on 8th to 15th August 2020
7-Day Intensive Immersion

Kuan Yin Qigong was created by Anamarta with thirteen years of refinement and the belief of more than 4000 years of refinement of the Qigong itself, this internal martial art which focuses on health that reflects on all levels of one’s being, cultivating the qi/chi/energy, developing inner strength. 

Besides grounding and being centered in your power, Kuan Yin Qigong offers gentle, but profound exercises for the whole body, including the pelvis, the cultivation of hormonal balance, and addressing specific women’s needs for radiant health, vitality and rejuvenation. 

All Women are Welcome! 

If you want to learn something new, develop, evolve and/or master your Qigong practice, and take it as a Health and Self-Healing Retreat in your Tao (Way) of Feminine Empowerment. Or this + you would like to become a teacher, getting a recognised qualification. This is for you!

An amazing venue in the middle of the vineyards, in the lovely countryside of Ponte Lima, this historic village in the North of Portugal, with delicious food prepared by our in-house chefs. 

Besides the Unique Training, it’s a treat of a nourishing and luxury holiday.
