Long White Cloud Qigong Teacher
I'm Sian Eden, a Qigong instructor based in Chipping Norton, UK, and founder of Cotswold Qigong. I am happiest when I am outdoors in nature- whether it be snow, or sunshine, the mountains, hills, or by the sea.
I have been so inspired by how Qigong has brought me back into balance and good health, that I trained to become an instructor with Master John Munro of Long White Cloud Qigong, New Zealand in the Wah Family style of Qigong.
My mantra is aligned with a part of Chinese medicine called Yang sheng, meaning “nurture life”. There is a wonderful Chinese proverb that sums up Yang Sheng – ‘A drop of prevention is worth a bucket load of cure.’
My mission is to share the benefits of this wonderful self-care practice to empower more people to master their health and feel better.
Juggling bringing up my children with a demanding career left me burnt out, exhausted, depleted and incredibly low in energy. I was running on empty and I had no way to recharge- I just didn’t know how. Qigong has transformed my energy levels and my health- it is so easy to fit in, so enjoyable, so portable and it truly delivers. I feel physically and emotionally better than I have ever felt because I understand what my body needs from the inside out.
Qigong not only hugely improves our physical fitness and mood, but it is also an incredible healer in recovery from injury and illness. I have first-hand experience of this after a serious skiing accident left my right knee in pieces. Instead of invasive reconstructive surgery, I chose to work with my body bringing it back into balance, rebuilding strength and returning vitality.
I offer one-to-one lessons with clients in person or via Zoom, I teach regular classes in person, and teach at wellbeing retreats. I also teach qigong on a voluntary basis to support a number of charities including most recently the incredible www.wefreewomen.com
