Qigong is a valuable tool for musicians and dancers striving to optimally work with the body and breathing.
On the flute festival in Lund a few years ago, 40 flute players practised qigong and experienced the difference in sound quality before and after the exercises. According to Anders Ljungar-Chapelon, who arranged the event, the tone after the training was noticeably improved.
Today’s dancers seek out exercises that increase inner strength and balance. Therefore, they practice the disciplines taichichuan, aikido, kendo and qigong quite frequently.
Since the 90s, Patrick has taught at various dance schools in Milan, Munich, Lausanne (Maurice Béjart) and Paris.
