qi gongZhi Neng Qi Gong

Loosely translated from Chinese:
Zhi; wisdom, healing
Neng; skill, potential.
Qi; vitality, movement of breathing.
Gong; exercising, editing, discipline, playing, living.
ZNQG consists of smooth and subtle movements
(sort of swimming, flowing movements)
in particular the energy pathways are activated in the body.
The top and bottom (yin and yang) of the body, left and right should be harmonized;
therefore all organs can function optimally again.
The lymph nodes are stimulated and ensure
that all waste and toxins are removed from our body.


Marianne combines her love of nature and West Africa with designs, fabrics and jewelry .
The fabrics come from Paris and the Gambia.
The creations are molded, ‘moulage’ in a traditional way,
painted or cut out of stone in her atelier in Arnhem.
She combines ‘inventing’ with the daily practice of Zhi Neng Qi Gong
(founded by Mr. Pang Ming)  ” the universal art of movement ‘ always
giving Marianne, her colleages and
clients the inspiration and creativity to stay innovative !
“Help yourself by doing Zhi Neng Qi Gong anywhere you can”, to experience
an authentic Marğalé B. qi trip to the Gambia or to have a design or jewelry.
It will change your life for the better!
