Beginner Tai Chi
Tai Chi is at once a study of movement and a meditative art. It is a martial art that has been practiced since before the 12th century in China, and can be seen as a slow motion routine that millions of people practice together every morning in parks around the world. It is an art that harmonizes the body and mind, and cultivates a state of balance.
 
Tai Chi has many health benefits, including improved blood circulation, boosting the immune system, and stress reduction. Mental focus is improved by directing the movements with the mind and focusing on the moment. Tai Chi is a cardiovascular work out which focuses on using the core. Joint mobility increases by using a natural range of motion over a period of time. The meditative aspect of Tai Chi helps to clear mental and emotional stress, while the movements help to clear physical stress; and promotes the movement of chi or energy in the body.

In this class, we will be learning the Traditional Form. The class is perfect for beginners with little to no experience with Tai Chi.

Beginner Chi Kung
Chi Kung is an ancient health exercise from China that has developed for over 2000 years. There are external and internal styles of Chi Kung. External Chi Kung involves external movement or postures, while the mind is still. Internal Chi Kung involves little movement externally, but focuses on cultivating and moving energy in the body using the intention.

This class for is for beginners or practitioners of any style that wish to enrich their practice. It is appropriate for all ages and abilities. Each semester, we will be exploring different styles of Chi Kung:


External Chi Kung

  • Ba Duan Jin (8 Sections of Brocade) is a classical form of medical Chi Kung for improving health that is performed with easy, flowing movements. Each movement is good for restoring the flow of energy in specific acupuncture meridians. This Chi Kung set is good for all of the meridians and internal organs, and is a form of standing Chi Kung.

  • Tao Yin Chi Kung is one of the oldest forms of Chi Kung. In this class, it involves gentle movements and stretching while sitting or lying down on the floor. Tao Yin means “energy directing”. By coordinating the movements with the breath, energy flows through the meridians.


Internal Chi Kung

  • 6 Healing Sounds / Inner Smile are forms of classical medical Chi Kung that involve balancing the energy in the organs using the intention.

  • Small Heavenly Circle (Kleiner Energie Kreislauf) is a form of classical medical Chi Kung that involves cultivating and circulating energy in the main acupuncture meridian in the body.
