What is Qi Dance?

Qi Dance is a mixture of Qi Gong, martial arts and dance, we find modern dance and body awareness of Chinese methods. The Qi Dance is a novelty but comes from Qi Gong and contemporary dances.

Kewen + Marceau 2 b&w

Qi Gong is there for health, manage stress and emotions, bring vitality. With the Qi Dance to find that too, but thanks to the dance awaken the free expressions of each one. As a result, it becomes a spontaneous Qi Gong with a certain awareness of the spiral movement and the notion of unity between the center and the extremities. All this allows people to wake up and express themselves more. So, for those who take Qi Gong classes, it helps them to deepen the essence of the gestures, and to internalize them, at the same time, in their body.

Kewen @ Eiffel 2

In China the origin of dances is the origin of the martial arts. The human being has always awakened his body to open also the depth of his being. Every kind of dance seeks to release what we are inside of ourselves. All masters of martial arts in China practiced free movements in the beginning, listening and tuning in to what they were. With time they created rules, Tai Ji and Qi Gong are the bases. Qi Dance is a dance with nature, without forgetting its shamanic side.

All the movements are spiral and directed by the basin to animate the rhythm, the same one found in art, in music, etc.  It is the pelvis that radiates and that resonate our whole body. We do not seek the perfection of the gesture, the perfect technique. Qi Dance is a way of listening to oneself. Everyone potentially has this ability and so can do Qi Dance.

N’oubliez pas qu’il ne s’agit ni d’un concert ni d’un spectacle. Nous ne sommes pas là pour vous divertir ou pour vous plaire.


Ensemble, nous créerons une bande sonore pour nous entraider à plonger plus profondément dans notre bonheur méditatif, à travers nos blocages mentaux, à libérer des énergies stagnantes, à équilibrer nos émotions et à libérer le corps.

Veuillez-vous joindre à nous pour célébrer le don du mouvement, de la thérapie par le son, des méditations et des énergies positives !

SSJ Memories & what people say 回忆+分享…


Memories from Shantih Shala Holistic Arts in Lyon and Paris, Apr 2018:

SSJ-Oct memory 2

”All since I’ve been training and healing myself….being with you and learning with you….
AND the more I learned to be free in and through SSJ, the more free I feel outside of it around people.

It’s because I have this provided space where I can be open and free and weird or crazy or whatever society would deem… because I have the opportunity to do whatever there, it transfers to other areas of my life. It’s because I see people in their free-ness it inspires me to be even more free and seek after my own heart.

I love the free-ness…. the free-ness of self.

We are free but we are not free. We put ourselves into bondage daily unbeknownst to us. We have to be taught how to be free and ”you allow us to be own Master while pointing us in the right direction”

Setting the spirit free to love and just BE…My mind being free set my spirit free…

So I just wanna thank you for being the person that gave me the key.” ~ Khadijah Zareen

SSJ memories-Death

Dear Jo, I absolutely loved the session the other night. It was good to get the inner animal out of the prison and also throw away the mental garbage before sitting down for real meditation. I find such dynamic meditations to be very effective so I will be looking forward to joining these sessions in the future. Many thanks for organizing it!

SSJ brought me into deep discovery of self and deep healing. With Josephine’s facilitation, I was able to dive within and allowed everything coming up. I felt such relief after workshop and being whole again.
