Qi Gong and Internal Martial Arts Class List
Chansi Gong - Tue at 6pm (In person or online)
Chansi means "silk-reeling" and refers to the spiraling movements that are trained in this set. In nature, all energy spirals and when we train this movement we begin to move in a more natural way, with increased fluidity and ease. When the dantian qi is full and the joints are open, the spiraling movements of silk-reeling convey qi throughout the channels to connect all of the eighteen joints of the body together as one. This generates the tremendous power and fluidity of movement that is the hallmark of Chen style.
Hunyuan Gong - Wed at 6pm (In person or online) Fri at 9am (Online only)
Chen-style Xinyi Hunyuan Taijiquan (abbreviated as Hunyuan Taiji) is the Taiji (tai-chi) lineage where the Hunyuan Gong set originates from. This is a very unique and powerful qigong set that was developed by Grandmaster Feng Zhiqiang.
In this set we gather energy from our environment to open the meridians (energy channels of the body), develop Dantian (a storage area for qi, translates to "elixir field"), and cultivate stillness. This set has a profound ability to heal the body and has been known to heal issues like whiplash, scoliosis, organ dysfunction, and many others.
HunYuan Taiji Simplified 24 Form (Wed at 7pm)
The hallmarks of Chen style Taijiquan are variation in speed, alternating soft and explosive movements, and a kind of spiraling movement called Chansi Jin (silk reeling energy). This Hunyuan form comes from the Chen style, but has a deeper emphasis on nourishing and internal cultivation. Qigong is a prerequisite for this class.
