KIKO is a Japanese form of qi gong (“working with energy”), which promotes health, harmony and well-being.

  • less stress

    kiko lowers stress both mentally and physically by removing tension & blockages

  • more vitality

    by utilizing gentle multi-dimensional movements, kiko strengthens and promotes flexibility of the spinal chord & torso, resulting in a overall rejuvenation

  • greater mindbody awareness

    through a basic set of exercises (which all have a physical and mental side), one becomes more aware of all inner movements

Ki or qi can be seen as a field of subtle energy or information

2

working on the physical chakras, the whole length of the torso is mobilized in 3 dimensions

3

most excercises are cyclic and performed standing up so there is little risk of injuries (compared to yoga e.g.)

Visualizations amplify the effect of certain exercises, (re)discovering inner connections

My personal style has been influenced mostly by Frédéric Duribreux (Oostende), Richard Prospero (Bruxelles) & Kenji Tokitsu (France).
The latter has developed “jisei kiko” together with dr. Yayama (Japan), which also forms the basis for a powerful inner karate style (jisei karate do).

Other influences include other qi gong forms, yoga and muscular & articular chains (Godelieve Struyf-Denys).
