Workshop 1: Tai Chi Breathing and Qi Flow in Meridians

In this workshop you will study Qi channels (meridians) in the human body and learn to nourish them with the correct breathing patterns. This practice can be applied to Tai Chi Chuan, Qi Gong or any daily activity. TC will be demonstrating this within the application of his custom San-Shou routine. TC will also lead you into Tai Chi Sound practice to enrich your Qi flow.

For addition information call Jinn-Sho 錦繡 at (214) 600-1636 or Julia Lee at (202) 270-1350.

Workshop 3: Qi Kung III

This Sunday we will continue to work on the Qi flow in meridians and analyze the six sounds system. You will learn how to enhance your health with it, also how to apply it in Tai Chi practice.

FYI
The Six Healing Sounds or Liu Zi Jue (六字訣) is one of the common forms of Chinese qigong, and involves the coordination of movement and breathing patterns with specific sounds.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qigong

Qigong, chi kung, or chi gung (气功 or 氣功) (pronounced “chee-gung”) is a practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness for exercise, healing, and meditation.[1] With roots in Chinese medicine, martial arts, and philosophy, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to balance qi (chi) or what has been translated as “intrinsic life energy.”[2] Typically a qigong practice involves rhythmic breathing, coordinated with slow stylized repetition of fluid movement, and a calm mindful state.[3] Qigong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide, and is considered by some to be exercise, and by others to be a type of alternative medicine or meditative practice.[4] From a philosophical perspective qigong is believed to help develop human potential, allow access to higher realms of awareness, and awaken one’s “true nature.”[5]


T’ai chi ch’uan vs qigong

Main article: T’ai chi ch’uan

T’ai chi ch’uan (tàijíquán, 太极拳), or simply tai chi, is often translated as “supreme boxing” or “supreme balancing”, and is a popular system of internal (Nèijiā 內家) martial arts focused on spiritual, mental, and qi-related aspects of practice and characterized by complex stylized movements.[16][27] The Chinese character 极 , jí or chi, means “final” or “extreme”, in contrast with 氣, qì or chi, which means “life energy”. While some scholars and practitioners consider tai chi to be a type of qigong,[28] the two are more commonly distinguished as separate but closely related practices, with qigong playing an important role in training for tai chi, and with many tai chi movements performed as part of qigong practice.
