Chi Kung

… consciousness in movement

CHI KUNG literally means guiding and cultivating energy through breath.  It is the art of conscious and active movement.

My approach to CHI KUNG takes its source in a long term sharing with Hilde Broechove (Meridian Chi Kung & Primordial Chi Kung),

and initially with Dr. Marcello Schmid (Tuina – Qi Gong), Rivka Crémisi (Qi Gong of Inner Verticality – Wu Ji Zhan Zhuang Qi Gong).

I propose a sentient practice, embedded into the generous natural frame of Alentejo,

through a powerful set of movements relating to the 5 Taoist elements (Metal, Earth, Fire, Water, and Wood) 

that balance the energy flow in the meridians, harmonizes the organic physiology,

strengthens the tendons, muscles, and bones and awakens the unity of nature within and around ourselves.

By consciously moving we enable our potential to root deeper into the self and awaken our profound source of vitality.

The exercises are structured in such a way that everyone can practice them in full respect to their physical abilities.


After a long and intense professional career as a dancer and performer, Louise Chardon (Lou)

develops further her life path through somatic practices enhancing spiritual growth and self-inquiry.

For more than 30 years, she dedicates herself to the study of being (in) motion.

She specialized in listening to the profound sensitivity of the self

and how our subconscious manifests into our embodied nature.

She mainly applies her researches to her visual and performative art

and shares it through her pedagogic and therapeutic approaches

which she defines as Embodied Philosophy & Energetic Physiology.

Louise is a certified Body-Mind Centering® Practitioner.

She embodies Chi Kung, Tuina, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, Feldenkrais,

Alexander Technique, Authentic Movement and Yoga for more than 20 years.
