Tai Chi Qigong:
In this class, we will practice the Hunyuan Qigong (often shortened to Hunyuangong) movements of Hunyuan Tai Chi. This qigong method is rooted in the philosophy behind traditional Chinese medicine and consists of gentle, mindful movements which are practiced with iterative intention.
Come start your day with a gentle movement art. Originating from ancient Chinese philosophy, Tai Chi is an “internal” art that changes the body, mind, and heart from the inside out. Scientific studies have shown health benefits too numerous to list for mental, physical and emotional health. It is a multifaceted art with a number of integrative elements and practices. In this class, we will practice the Hunyuan Qigong and study the Hunyuan 24 movement choreography. Hunyuan Qigong consists of gentle, mindful movements which are practiced with iterative intention.
These simple movements are the essential building blocks of Tai Chi, put together in various combinations throughout the 24 movement choreography, creating the purposeful and gentle movement routines that most people think of when they imagine people practicing Tai chi in a park.
Regular practice of these movements will unlock the many health benefits that Tai Chi has to offer. The simple, easy to remember, easy to physically perform movements in this set contain the essential ingredients of Tai Chi and are suitable for nearly everyone, regardless of age, fitness level or physical difficulties.
