Tai Chi is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. The term taiji refers to a philosophy of the forces of yin and yang, related to the moves. Tai chi is often described as a meditation in motion, but it might well be called medication in motion.
Qi Gong is a holistic training of coordinated body posture and movements used for health, spirituality, and martial arts training. Dynamic standing postures draw up the earth’s energy and power through the bone structure, draw in energy from the cosmos, and through breathing techniques access the energy through seasons into the 5 major organs.We will begin our classes at 6pm with the fundamentals of Tai Chi, Iron Shirt and Qi Gong to ground and stabilize the body.
Stages that One can Experience as they practice Tai Chi and Qi Gong
The First Stage-
The Earliest Stages of change that one might experience through both Tai Chi and Chi Gong is the melting of tension from the body’s muscle.
The Second Stage-
As the body’ skeletal structure and is given more “space” through the dissolvent of muscular tension, physical injuries both old and new begin to repair themselves as the body begins to move into more healthier and faster rejuvenativing states
The Third Stage-
As the transformation of flow moves deeper into the body, the body begins to improve organ-based imbalances with allowing for the digestion system to be more efficient or the lungs optimizing its treating process, or even the liver and kidneys able to remove toxins out of the body.
The Forth Stage-
As the body continues relax further to replacing “flow” with effort, the person’s mind begins to seek stillness rather than mental thought in creating movement and eventually power.
