Our UK Shaolin Wellbeing classes are open to all people to join. The classes will involve a practical guide to meditation and Qi Gong. These methods will also assist in reducing stress, anxiety, isolation, and other negative states of mind. Instead, you will learn how to become peaceful, relaxed, and cultivate patience through various meditation and mindfulness techniques.

You do not need to have any previous experience with meditation. What’s more is that our meditation and Qi Gong sessions are inclusive – welcoming all people, of any age, sex, gender, sexuality and persons of any faith, or no faith. We will give you a simple, down-to-earth guide to meditation that can help you relieve stress, take stock, and find new meanings to life.


  • 1st Friday of each month: In this session, we encourage people of our community to come together for a short meditation, some tea and snacks to have a chat about a certain health and wellbeing related topic. All UK Shaolin Wellbeing members and participants of these social sessions are encouraged to suggest ideas and topics they are interested in and want to talk about. So when you join and fill out the form, do not miss out on that question as you can have a say of what topics will be talked about in this session. We will provide the overall frame and guidance for these sessions, but expect participants to contribute ideas and opinions. The focus of these sessions is to come together, share and talk about experiences in order to learn on how to improve your personal health and wellbeing.
