Level 1 Basic Teacher / Manchester

Heero is one of the founding members of the Missing Link martial arts community alongside Secret Elements founder Sascha Wagener. The community aims on providing an holistic approach to martial arts like it used to be in ancient times. Realistic fighting, health methods and psychologial factors are intensly researched and incorporated into the system. Secret Elements Qi Gong functions as one vital component of these health aspects. www.missinglink-martialarts.uk

Secret Elements Qi Gong

Ancient roots and modern knowledge of Kinesiology and Psychology are combined in Secret Elements Qi Gong. It's movements go back to the old knowledge of Daoist and Buddhist health exercises and work on the foundation of traditional Chinese medicine. Beside that it is the first system incorporating the kinesiological muscle connections and modern insights of mind training.

For everybody

Secret Elements Qi Gong is a system that can easily be learned and practiced by everybody. The basic exercises can be performed standing, seated or even lying. As they widen the awareness for your body movements they transform into a deeper exercise each time they are practiced. The benefits that come from a finer connection between body and mind are of immense value. If you are in a period of illness, in older age, an athlete or competitor, or just for your daily life.

Physical balance

Qi Gong is one of the best methods to increase your body awareness and learn the ability to relax. The soft movements increase your fine motor skills step by step and strengthen your brain/body connection. Besides the typical soft movements Secret Elements Qi Gong offers also exercises which gently strengthen the muscles and increases mobility. Each exercise set consists of the 3 phases: Strength, Flexibility & Energy.

Emotional balance

Secret Elements Qi Gong reaches deep into the field of self healing and emotional balance. Thus it is a powerful tool for therapists or a personal help kit for a balanced life. Each of the five traditional Chinese elements represent specific emotions and mental states, which can be directly addressed through the exercises. Mental training and programming deepen the therapeutic aspect in later levels of Secret Elements.
