Back To Spring Qi Gong brings meditation into movement and standing. There are four different key standing positions, each of which are followed by repetitive movement sequences. With continuous practice of these positions, we begin to understand the principles of effortlessness in upright standing, while simultaneously releasing ourselves from physical tensions and unnecessary thoughts. Thus, building an absolute foundation of internal Martial arts.
In the 18 basic Tai Ji Steps, we learn to deliver the principles of standing meditation into movement and step work.
The movement and step work progressively transition from quiet and meditative into more complex and challenging forms of coordination. By practicing these exercises on a regular basis, we are able to build a fundamental understanding of efficient and effortless movement by using our body as a whole unit.
In our 5 Animal Qi Gong, we study the movement principles of five different animals in order to develop various layers and qualities of movement. It allows us to broaden our range of abilities and freedom while moving. This Qi Gong is also connected to the 5 element system of Chinese medicine where each animal is associated with the health of our various bodily organs.
