Pronounced chee-gung, Qigong was first practiced 3000 years ago and went on to become the basis of Tai Chi and most Eastern martial art forms. It consists of meditation, physical movements and breathing exercises.
Tai Chi is based on relaxed and slow moving exercises, one posture flowing into the next like a stream of water.
Leading Tai Chi and Qigong practitioner Master Zhang Hao came to Australia in 1988 to promote the benefits of these oriental health systems. He will visit Norfolk Island from 04-11 January to focus on the skills required to develop the rejuvenating Five Animal Play Qigong and the ever popular Tai Chi fan.
Master Zhang Hao and his senior instructors will perform a demonstration to introduce participants to the Tai Chi and Qigong art forms. Throughout the week classes will be held daily. No previous experience is required.
Informal gatherings with Master Zhang Hao’s senior instructors will also be organised for participants to revise what they have learnt during the Master’s classes.

Norfolk has a unique beauty of its own, with its renowned tall majestic pines, sheer cliff faces, coral reefs and beautiful beaches. Almost one third of the island is devoted to National Parks and Reserves. But Norfolk Island is far more than a picturesque island in the South Pacific, it is paradise with a past.

There is much to see and do on Norfolk Island: fascinating historic tours, see Kingston which is a World Heritage Listed area,outdoor re-enactments of the Bounty Mutiny (with parts played by actual descendants of Fletcher Christian), ‘Light and Sound’ shows, eco-tours, glass bottom boat coral reef trips, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, dining out in the numerous fine restaurants, bush walking, scenic horse riding, golf on what has been called the world’s most beautiful golf course, bowls, tennis, and squash.
