Participants will learn calming and peaceful mind, adjusting breathing, and empty mind. They will experience total tranquility, the sense of lightening, floating, releasing and enlightening. As expressed by the Master:
“You forget, let go all the past and present and refresh yourself with new life and a new way of living.”
According to Susan Chan, Chief Coordinator of the Liu Institute, by following the Master participants will learn to breathe and stretch in various postures to relax the muscles, tendons and ligaments, to balance and circulate Qi, to improve mental and physical harmony and communication. The sessions will introduce a few basic techniques of Shaolin, including “Yijinjing” & “Eight Pieces of Brocade”. Such techniques are 1,500 years old, and help to balance and channel Qi (energy), so as to calm and cleanse the body and mind to release stress and improve overall healing.
“Tai Gong”, said the Master, “is a combination of Tai Chi and Qi Gong based on ancient Shaolin Chan and medical exercise therapy practices. It focuses on Qi (energy) empowerment and body/mind cleansing, as well as Qi redirecting. Tai Gong redirects, unblocks and balances Qi on the right path in the meridian channels and within the organs for wellness and healing. It helps to improve calmness of body and mind, opens the Qi flow, re-channel the Qi, mobilize Qi and increase energy levels and strengthen the functions of organs, ligaments, and muscles. The circulation of Qi from the circulating motions of the body, limbs, joints, and organs, and improves the transportation of Oxygen, energy and nutrients for healing and the bodily function. Tai Gong will help each individual to bring about the body and mind communication into reality.”
The Harvard Medical Press notes, “..Tai Chi might well be called medication in motion. ..”. Researchers at Harvard found growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as a martial art, has value in treating or preventing many health problems such as high blood pressure and heart disease. Combined with traditional treatment, tai chi appears to be valuable for several medical conditions such as: anxiety, depression, back pain, arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, heart disease, hypertension, Parkinson's disease, sleep problems, and stroke. Participating in Tai Chi may also help to boost the immune system, improve respiratory-circulatory function.
