Class Description

  1. Ba Duan Jin (preferebly morning class)
  2. (The Octupled Brocade) is a traditional inner practice for keeping good health in ancient China. This set of Qigong practice is designed for deep viscera organs to enhance the vitality and longevity of human beings. The main points, usage, and purpose of the movement are mentioned in its eight steps. Ba Duan Jin also incorporates the idea of traditional astrology theory, which also helps us to receive more energy from nature.

  3. Energetic Meridian Alignment (preferably morning class)
  4. According to traditional Chinese medicine, meridian is a path through which the life-energy known as "qi" is believed to flow. It is essential for human being’s health. Meridians regulate energy flow, balance Yin and Yang, connect inner body organs, in a word, it's essential for healthy life. Meanwhile our spine is regarded as the second "life line" for human beings. It's the central part of kinesiology, shock absorber, protector for CNS. In this class we will share some interesting spine work adopting the insightful concept of TCM Meridians.

  5. DaoYinShu—Taoism Meridian Channelizing Techniques
  6. The meridians and their collaterals have functions to link the internal organs with the limb, to carry qi and blood to nourish the body, to conduct the sensation to adjust excess or deficiency in the body, and to prevent the body from the attacks by exogenous evils. Due to our inner organs' diseases, excessive climate changes, emotional imbalances etc our meridian may get blocked or not functioning properly, according to TCM concept we can treat disease and remain healthy by application of acupuncture & moxibustion to adjust the function of the meridians and collaterals, blood and Qi, and internal organs. In this class we would share a traditional Taoism way to channelizing meridians.

  7. Care for the Heart
  8. Our biography determines our biology. Through years' of life journey, we all inevitably accumulated various holding patterns which initially served to protect us from further damage,are now blocking our energy Channels, affecting our physical and emotional health, and most importantly compromising our ability to love and to be loved. Through this introspective course, we'll first identify these holding patterns in our physical body, and then look deep inside of our heart to be aware of the dysfunctional "programs", and let go of them through meditative QiGong and yoga practices. Remember each of us hold the key to our cure and prosperity.
