Introduction Chris Elliott ….
Over the years I have trained in Karate and as the years rolled on switched to Tai Chi and then Qigong which suited my lifestyle. In September of last year, I had a major spinal fusion operation here in the TRNC and with a long recovery period was planning to start swimming early in the new year and start Qigong exercises at home but along came Coronavirus and then there was no opportunity for swimming in an indoor pool and there seemed to be no way I could help my self recovery.
Having had some great times in the past training with Tarik Tekman the opportunity of following his 15 week course of video exercises proved very tempting and Margaret Sheard and I started by watching his first video of Qigong exercises on Monday 6th April which we joined in with and repeated the experience for 7 days.
On Monday 13th April the 2nd video became available and again we joined in every day with creaking joints and sore muscles and in my case, I started using exercises and meditation. I studied many years ago at Pranic Healing classes and I am starting to believe I can recover some of that lost fitness and self-belief in my body.
So onwards and upwards they say and I am back in the swing of things despite the need for a replacement knee which seems to be holding up to the shock of exercises and I am looking forward to next Monday when we have another challenging video No 3. leading us on the road back to greater fitness and peace of mind.
Following is Tarik’s program :
