Introduction to Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi Set 2
1/2 Day Intensive Seminar

April 20, 2019, 9am – 1pm. 

Laguna Hills CA. 

Introduction to Shibashi Qigong Set 2 is a half day intensive seminar intended to give the beginner or intermediate student an introduction into the entire second set of 18 Shibashi Qigong movements.  The seminar will focus on the specific forms that compose the second routine, the transitions between the movements, and how to practice them correctly.  The seminar will also give an overview of the Taoist Qigong energy model to apply it to your personal qigong practice.  Using the 18 Forms Shibashi Qigong routine as a foundation the students in the seminar will learn:

  • All 18 movements of Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi Set 2
  • How to get better results from your existing Qigong or Tai Chi practice immediately
  • Wuji – Theory behind this foundational form and how to apply it into your practice
  • 3 Taoist Treasures theory and application into practice
  • How to properly use the Kua, and how to sink into the Kua
  • The Ripple Effect and how to apply it into the moving forms routine
  • How to maintain correct posture when moving
  • Best practices for Qigong.  (ie: Time of day, weather, environment)

This seminar is intended for students that have already become comfortable practicing the 1st Set of Shibashi Qigong and want to learn the 2nd set of 18 movements. While the 1st set is more focused on opening the meridians of the upper body, the 2nd set is more focused on opening the meridians of the legs. Not only is it good for improving ones balancing ability, people that practice this qigong may also notice improvements when they meditate. During meditation, people often feel numbness in their legs when they sit cross legged or in a kneeling position for a long period of time. This is because the Qi cannot flow freely through the legs. This numbness sensation makes it difficult for the practitioners to enter low alpha or theta mind state needed for deep meditation.  The 2nd set is more focused on opening the meridians of the legs, thus enabling practitioners to experience deeper mediation. The 2nd set is also good preparation for those who wish to practice Zhan Zhuang, (standing qigong) an excellent practice for accumulating Qi. The skills that are learned in this workshop are fundamental to most styles of qigong and can be combined with other practices to improve efficiency and results.

Introduction to 5 Element Qigong & Silk Reeling
1/2 Day Intensive Seminar

May 11, 2019 , 9am to 1pm. 

Laguna Woods – Clubhouse Two
24112 Moulton Parkway,
Laguna Woods, Ca. 92637

Tuition $99 

This is a half day seminar intended to give the novice student an introduction into the 5 elements, Wood, Fire, Earth Metal Water. The seminar will focus on how to do the specific forms that compose the 5 Element Qigong routine, and how to better feel and understand the different qualities of each of the elements. Students will also learn about 5 element theory and how the interaction of the elements can impact other areas of our lives. 

The seminar also will also explore Silk Reeling exercises, (chan si gong) an important training method for developing body awareness, coordination, unity in movement, strength and internal energy. These silk reeling movements work on the spine and the different joints of the body. Proper spinal alignment is one of the most important keys to overall good health. An unhealthy spine can cause disease in many parts of the body. Silk reeling exercise not only improves one’s spinal alignment, it can increase one’s flexibility, joint movement, and balance. At all levels of tai chi training, silk reeling exercises are of great importance. How you move in silk reeling is how you move in the Tai Chi form, both are interdependent on each other. Training silk reeling drills isa life long commitment to improving your Tai Chi form. The skills that are learned in this workshop are fundamental to most styles of qigong and can be combined with other practices to improve efficiency and results.

Space is limited to ensure that every student is given a comfortable training space during the seminar.

Advanced Registration is required.
