Description

Andy Wright has put together a nine move set, with all the moves benefiting the condition of diabetes. He has researched the best of the best and has created this FREE set of qigong exercises based upon the underlying reasons of good Qi flow.

Most times the body has good energy flow. When a blockage occurs the real world result is an illness. Unfortunately, by the time symptoms appear the said problem has manifested to such a point that the body's reaction is significant.

If people practised Qigong regularly there is possibility that illnesses can be minimised. Once physical signs have begun it is not impossible to recover, it just may take a while longer.

Diabetes has many real world causes other than the standard blocked energy which is only an outward manifestation. For example, the person's lifestyle choices (e.g. a sugar rich diet with no exercise) CAN contribute to the overall condition the body manifests.

Qigong is brilliant but it is not a miracle worker. It is merely a tool to maintaining good health and to prevent and improve your health; HOWEVER you may need to improve other aspects of your life such as increasing exercise (where Qigong can help) and changing the diet (removing toxic additives and sugar / processed products).

Who this course is for:

  • This set is specifically for people with diabetes, however it is also for anyone else who wishes to use prevention methods
  • It is suitable for all levels of experience

My name is Andy Wright and I live in Wiltshire (UK). In 1961 I was born with a condition called cerebral palsy. For quite a number of years the condition was the focus of attention for professionals and the like. Until the age of 8 I was reliant upon a wheel chair for mobility but crawled around on my hands and knees in the house.

When I joined the Scouts I was inspired to get up and walk; having seen the other kids having fun, running around and enjoying themselves. My aim was to walk a few feet (literally) to collect my Christmas present from the School Santa. I don't remember too much about it, but I have been back to the school and noticed the distance was only 6-10 feet. However, it led on to other things... Karate training was responsible for improving my balance and coordination.

Formal education was achieved at Claremont School in Bristol until the age of 11 years and subsequently at Thomas Delarue School in Kent.

After leaving school at 16 years I had a years' worth of work experience followed by 10 months of paid employment. I spent the next 8 years unemployed although I had many social activities going on such as mobile disco DJ, War Gaming enthusiast, CB Radio operator and from about 1986 budding software author (following my purchase of the ZX Spectrum 128k).

In 1989 I started work as a computer software programmer for Avon Tyres and spent a fantastic 5 years developing Quality Assurance applications on the Amstrad 1640.

In 1989 i qualified as a black belt in karate, after training for 4 years and doing regular gradings. Shortly after, 1990, I opened up my own club teaching karate to anyone who wanted to learn, until by 1995 I had a 250+ student base and was travelling the world teaching.

The next position was for Wiltshire Council Careers Department as a part time Computer Engineer and the plan was that the remaining hours would be used to develop a freelance training business, but after 3 or 4 years it did not really take off.

So, in order to pay the bills the next role (in 1998) was a mobile computer engineer working for a variety of companies including HP & COMPAQ. The job meant travel to Lloyds TSB banks and MG ROVER garages to support staff with hardware and software issues.

In 2004 a chance of redundancy meant a quick change of employer but also a change of role to an employment advisor for Shaw Trust. The job involved working with ex-drugs Users to help them back into work and was funded through DWP.

During the years of 1998 and 2004 I had a lot of interest in various holistic health qualifications and trained in a number of them only to discover later that they were not really for me!

I discovered tai chi chi kung through my Australian visits teaching karate, but also as part of shiatsu training with Chris Jarmey. While I did not finish my shiatsu qualification it was a really good grounding to enable the move towards teaching chi kung. I did other courses and joined the Tai Chi Forum for Heath where I took up the Teacher Training qualification.

During the years of 2004-2009, I slowly developed the demand for sessions starting with the local leisure centres and then local voluntary groups. I did a couple of private sessions but had not developed the necessary skills to make them sustainable and they stopped.

Following an appearance at the 2007 Sport England conference the roller coaster that was teaching tai chi had begun to accelerate towards the eventual goal of full time employment; with engagement by several agencies and voluntary groups around the County to teach sessions on a weekly basis.
