Liu Zi Jue: Six Sounds Approach to 

Qigong Breathing Exercises

This Qigong Workshop will offer an introduction to the complete set of Liu Zi Jue - Six Healing Sounds and accompanying movements.

  • Liu Zi Jue is an ancient breathing and exercise system practised with the intention of detoxifying the body and mind.
  • Liu Zi Jue (6 Healing Sounds) focuses on reverse abdominal deep breathing and specific mouth shapes to form and produce the sounds, and 'mobilise the Qi*'.
  • Liu Zi Jue, sometimes called 'Six Mantra Healing Sounds', combines breathing techniques, sounds and co-ordinated movements that aim to have a beneficial restorative effect on generalhealth and wellbeing.
  • The movements of Liu Zi Jue support the sounds.
  • The earliest record of these exercises are believed to have appeared during the Northern and Southern Dynasties 420-589CE - the practice has developed over centuries, with and without movements.
  • The combination of vocalisations and movements are considered to be potentially healing to body, mind and spirit.

*Qi ~ Chi: circulating life force/ vitality/ energy


**** The exercises are accessible to all - all abilities and all agilities - all are welcome ****
