Jung Shim Classes
Energy classes are a key part of the Jung Shim programme. They teach you how to tap into your own ‘human energy’ source – Qi and learn how to renew it in a sustainable way.
Comprising of chanting, energy movements and meditation, the classes are based on South Korean principles to harness ‘human energy’ and to regain a goodhearted, generous and compassionate state of being. Classes take place in a unique room called the Saemtu which is a peaceful space, full of Qi energy.
The classes support physical energy, emotional wellbeing and spiritual development.

A one hour Qi class begins with chanting vibrational sounds. Although unfamiliar at first, the sound works to open the major energy centres and tune the body to receive Qi (energy), leaving participants feeling clear, calm and focused.
They then follow a series of energy movements to create a smooth circulation of Qi throughout the energy meridians. There are a series of movements guided by the class leader. Energy movements detoxify the body and open different energy channels until the entire system is connected. Movements can be adapted depending on an individual’s health condition and flexibility.
A Qi class ends with meditation designed for self-reflection and clearing the mind. By receiving energy first through the chanting and movements the process of meditation is deeper and more effective. Meditation helps to absorb and digest energy received during the class.
After the class participants generally feel calm, clear, detoxified and energised. As a spiritual practise the connection to energy and personal development grows with each class.
Supporting the Qi Class like Yin and Yang, is a 40-minute chanting class. Chanting helps you to harness the power of your human energy in an uplifting class. Chanting builds a connection with yourself and Qi.
The chants are vibrational sounds. They help to open the energy pathways and declutter the mind restoring clarity and peace. The chants clear negative energy absorbed during the day, whilst reminding you of your goodhearted, generous and compassionate nature within.
There are two different chants recited in the class to harmonise with the vibration of nature and receive energy receive. At Jung Shim, chanting can help with healing; clearing energy in a space; regaining a positive and happy mind; achieving a decision by focusing energy; and connecting and regaining a goodhearted state of being.
Coaching comprises of inspiring talks to understand energy, the Jung Shim philosophy and the mind as well as individual mentoring sessions for personal development.
Specially trained energy practitioners guide you to release the deep-rooted blockages held in the mind that prevent the smooth circulation of energy. They help you to get the most out of the classes for your happiness and health.
