WHAT IS CHIBALL? A 1 hour balanced mind body low impact exercise programme, based

    on TCM, colour and aroma therapy, combining the disciplines of Tai Chi-Qi Gong, Chiball Dance,

    Yoga, Pilates, the principles of Feldenkrais (Chiball Release) and Deep Relaxation/Meditation to

    music with a ChiBall.

    Tai Chi and Qi Gong cleanses, rejuvenates and refreshes the internal body by working with the breath and the meridian system.

    ChiBall? Dance is used to generate energy, mobility and flexibility using vigorous to gentle, slow, continuous movement patterns which aids detoxification and oxygen supply to the muscles.

    Yoga increases strength, flexibility, concentration, balance and self-awareness.

    Pilates develops core strength, supports the spine, stabilises the pelvis and increases the mobility of the joints.

    Chiball Release helps us rediscover the effortless movement patterns & cultivates the art of listening & letting go.

    Deep Relaxation induces calmness of mind & body through deep breathing, visualisation techniques &


    Traditional Chinese Medicine

    Chi is our vital energy which can be depleted or become excessive through poor eating habits, lifestyle & negative emotions. Stress and tension are the primary causes of the depletion of Chi. Exercise, followed by deep relaxation is

    an excellent way to re-balance and rejuvenate the body.

    Ying & Yang are complementary opposite states of energy that are in constant motion, striving to achieve balance in all things.

    The Meridians are the invisible pathways within the body through which energy flows to our internal organs.

    An imbalance in one or more of these meridians weakens the entire body.

    The Five Elements of Nature are Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water through which the yin and yang energies are expressed. Each element correlates with the seasons and has many characteristics that are direct relections of

    nature. Our goal is to align our body’s energy and our life’s activities with these patterns of nature.

    Colour and Aromatherapy - Students are asked to select a ball to start class with and may be drawn to a colour and fragrance that is a reflection of the positive part of themselves, their health and their life at that moment in

    time, or they may have an aversion to a particular ChiBall colour or fragrance, which is often the colour we need to restore balance.

    The ChiBall Method? strives to allow each participant to develop his or her own individual sense of wellbeing, balance and self-awareness. ChiBall was created in Australia in 1997 and is currently used by the Swedish Army,

    Scandinavian hospitals, Royal Melbourne Hospital, Physiotherapists in Europe, Australia and the US, Gyms etc.
