Many people come to Byron Bay for deep relaxation, healing and rejuvenation, and for getting in touch with their inner selves and the positive direction they wish their lives to take. Learning Qigong with Shirsha Marie is a profound way to focus within and develop essential energy for self-healing and peace of mind.


Qigong is a soft-style exercise art that cultivates vital life energy for radiant health and well-being. It is a natural self-healing process that integrates body, breath and mind, in harmony with life and all existence.

Qigong exercise is a sensible and reliable approach to fitness, health and longevity for all ages and levels of fitness. The gently flowing exercises of Qigong open the body to move in ways that  natural and comfortable and systematically develop structural alignment, inner strength and superior health.

Some fitness methods oppose the body in a manner which is aggressive, by forcing it into postures and movements that require a flexibility and athleticism that are unrealistic and impractical to maintain – particularly for the not-so-young body. In contrast, Qigong exercise is 100% healing and harmonious with the body's innate wisdom. Qigong exercises are gentle, strengthening and nourishing, and consistent with the body's natural form.
