Practical and knowedgeable instruction
Hello and welcome to my site. My name is Amanda Flood.
I have twenty years experience in meditation and qigong, eight years of it teaching, and have explored a huge number of techniques for improving happiness, health and wellbeing... my lifelong passion.
I offer practical and informed instruction, relaxing and non-invasive, with exercises that I've found to really work.
I'm based in Suffolk, UK.
Qigong exercises are designed to restore healthy energy flows in the body and rebalance emotional issues. It is an ancient tradition that formed the basis of Chinese medicine and gave rise to acupuncture among other things. Qigong is simple, relaxing and highly effective exercise, promoting core strength and wellbeing.
Mindfulness meditation is the simplest of all techniques, originally known as vipassana meditation, which has been practised for two thousand years. Although its roots are in the Buddhist tradition, mindfulness is a non-denominational practice and anybody can benefit from it.
Mindfulness meditation is a training in becoming aware of the mind and of the self by cultivating presence in the moment. It dissolves many stresses and anxieties and returns you to a state of peace, balance and resilience. The world does not necessarily change around you, but you change and become more adaptable and present in your life, which can have long-reaching effects on your happiness and ability to build a good life, good relationships and good memories. It is a healing practice.
