“Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your fantastic community. I loved every part of my experience from the intense stretching to the subtle awareness gained from deep meditation. The instructors were great and supportive to help achieve personal goals.
3 weeks was a good amount of time, but I suspect that I would of stayed a lot longer had I not had other commitments. I plan on returning in the future to improve my Shuang yang.
I originally came to learn chi kung for my morning routine, and left with a new found balance, and a greater appreciation for life.”
“It is so great to find out when you arrive someplace you’ve never been, to do something you’ve done, that you found the real deal. Nam Yang Kung Fu Retreat was just that for me. I stayed at the retreat for two weeks and wish it could have longer. Master Ian and his entire staff of instructors are patient, friendly, thorough, respectful and unbelievably knowledgeable.
I went for the Qigong life style program, being 68 and more interested in meditation than martial arts, however, I found the conditioning, stretching and Kung Fu training not only challenging, but great fun. It was much more than I expected and if my body allows, I plan to return.”
“I have been at the Nam Yang Kung Fu retreat for 4 weeks (January 2019). It was a beautiful experience that I will always remember: the environment, the teaching, the healthy food and the Nam Yang community – all these elements combine very well, making this retreat truly special.
The instructors are very welcoming, kind and patient. I met many wonderful people and made some friends for life.
From all the great memories I hold from Nam Yang, one is particularly strong:
“The majestic Bodhi Tree waves its leaves over the main training ground. It stands tall and strong, deeply rooted, refreshing our bodies, minds and spirits as we are taught to breathe in…and out…in…and out.”
“Nam Yang Kung Fu retreat is truly unique. This is THE place to train and develop your mind and body. Master Iain is an inspiration to learn from. Our talks in the morning had developed our minds to a new level. The training develops your body and coordination. We loved the Kung Fu training for combat and self-defence, and as well the Chi Kung (Qigong). Meditation for health, vitality and enlightenment. We will be back! Strongly recommend to go with your spouse and/or friends. This is an experience for life. Share it the ones you love!”
