Laura led us though a warm up and a practice that included several Chi-Kung postures.
It was my first time. I learned that Chi-Kung takes focus and attention but it is not difficult.
“Chi-Kung can be practiced by people from age seven to over 80, and in all conditions. It can be done standing or sitting," Laura explains.
Feeling relaxed and energized after my first Chi-Kung class, I enjoyed a cup of tea and chatted with my classmates, who were from many different countries and of varying ages.
Through the ages there have been different branches of Chi-Kung, including aTaoist branch, a Buddhist branch, and a Confucianism branch. Today, Chi-Kung is a component of China´s national health plan and is practiced by millions of people from all walks life.
Chi-Kung is different thanT'ai Chi. Chi-Kung is a healing system. T'ai Chi is a martial art that was derived from Chi-Kung. Also the movements of Chi-Kung are usually simpler than T'ai Chi.
What brought Laura to Uruguay
“The woman asked me to come to Punta del Este, Uruguay.
"At that time, I had never heard of Punta del Este and was not even clear of the location of Uruguay. But, I felt it could be a wonderful experience.
“So I accepted. In 2010 I left Italy for Uruguay,” says Laura.
“What made me love Uruguay, and especially the coast of Punta del Este, is the nature and tranquility. I discovered large numbers of birds that I never saw in Europe. The colors of the trees are different and brighter. The beaches and the areas you find between the beaches and lagoons is fascinating.

“My native language is Italian, but I have studied, German, English, and French. I have learned Spanish living in Uruguay, and have lost a little fluency in other languages. But I am able to interact in several languages.” says Laura.
Since Laura came to Punta del Este, she was featured in Pasarela a La Moda, a glossy Buenos Aires fashion and lifestyle magazine. The article was titled "Reconectar Para Sanar" (Reconnect to Heal).
Laura's background and training
“I studied Xhi-Kung at the Academy of Milan Yi Quan with Mo. Sabino Leone. I practice the Dr. Yayama method of Chi-Kung consisting of simple exercises to increase the Chi since 2005,” says Laura.
Dr Toshihiko Yayama is a surgeon in Saga Japan. He is an immunologist, oncologist, and also knows traditional medicine. His Chi-Kung system is a synthesis of other systems.
In addition to Laura's philosophical journey, she also studies quantum physics. “Given that I am a practical person, I began wondering how I could apply the concepts of Einstein and Bohm to life,” says Laura.
