16, 30 May • 11:30am • Chinatown

Qigong, an exercise with thousands of years of history, is replete with movements that mirror the gentle crane and the lithe monkey. Watch as master Yeo of the Singapore Chin Woo Athletic Association imparts some of her qigong know-how to host Jerald.

Chin Woo

On this episode of our Community Association Series, host Jerald visits the Singapore Chin Woo Athletic Association to delve into the mind of a qigong master. The goal? To better understand the health benefits and philosophy behind the ancient exercise. Pick up some key moves and try them out for yourself from the comfort of your home.



If you are interested in learning more, the Chin Woo Athletic Association will be opening its doors for festival participants. The association will be giving the low-down on its history and sharing about its role grooming martial arts experts over the years. An instructor will also be on hand to run through the key steps behind the stress-relieving sport of qigong. You will very likely come away with moves that can help undo some of the knots in your neck, back and wrists from all the time spent working at your desk. Click on the register button above!

Due to tightened safe management measures, the workshop has been cancelled. We will be in touch with participants who had signed up, to arrange for full refunds.
