About yoga teacher Ton
I slowly raise my arms. I inhale and shift my body weight to the forefoot. I coordinate my movements. When my hands are diagonally above my head, I stand on my toes and the inhalation is complete. Everything is silent for a moment: heaven, earth, me in between. I like qigong. I feel at home in my body.
During my History studies in Groningen I discovered qigong. I sometimes read a book, attended workshops elsewhere and wanted to know more about the background of qigong. I started with an introductory course in Chinese philosophy during an acupuncture course. Without charge. I thought. My attention shifted from a hobby to serious study and further development in a profession. That’s how acupuncture found me. I graduated in 2002 and have since specialized in Japanese acupuncture.
I still like qigong. I use it during consultations and have been teaching again since 2018.
