Program

Tong Ling Chi Kung

By its nature, Chi Kung (also known as Qigong or Kigung) is simple and easy yet amazingly effective. Anyone can practice it successfully, regardless of age or fitness. The essential requirements are a properly trained instructor and good, fresh air. The basic Chi Kung system that is taught here is Tong Ling (clearing and circulating) Chi Kung. The perfect way to start the day.

Vein Tendon Chi Kung

Vein Tendon Chi Kung is a simple but effective system that tones all of the tendons in the body and increases its elasticity so that it can store more energy.

Dragonfly Chi Kung

A Chi Kung system focusing on core strength, flexibility, and balance with great general health benifits, including reduced stress, enhanced immunity, low blood pressure, and greater stamina.

Meditation

Meditation forms an intrinsic part of our Chi Kung training program. Generally, the course teaches how to perform simple, safe meditations including standing, walking and seated meditation. Students are also encouraged to practice in their own time, quietly and comfortably.

Included excursions

Mill Route

Immerse yourself in nature. Meditate under the trees. Every breath you take, every move you make, this is the essence of Qigong. The route of the mills takes you through the breathtaking countryside of Bimenes. Crossing the river and walking for a few minutes, you will find the first mills: El Molín de Matilde, El Molín de Barrial, Flora, Ferreru, or Máxima.

On the horizon and among the abundant vegetation, you glimpse the imposing peaks of the Sierra de Peñamayor. After a few kilometers of travel and close to the finish line, you will find the Molín de Milio or Fermina, which has been perfectly restored and conditioned to publicize the instruments and mechanisms used in the Asturian milling tradition. You find there a table with a bench so you can rest and replenish strength. It is at this point that the route intersects with that of the Peña del Hombre.

You continue on the way, upstream, and you arrive at the last mill of the route, the Molín de Honorio, where a path on the left takes you to the village of Melendreros, end of the route. The return home will take place on the same path.
