Qigong (Chi Kung): Chinese Yoga
These three classes feature an eclectic blend of Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, and Chinese Chi Kung Yoga. All these Internal Arts Exercise methods emphasize flexibility, full range of motion, staying grounded and balanced, cultivating inner mental and physical energies, coordinated breathing patterns, a calm composure, concentration, and will power. Hatha style Yoga includes many strength building postures, balancing exercises, both dynamic and longer static stretching postures, inversions, Warrior poses, standing and mat work, prop usage, and mental improvement recommendations. Vinyasa style (Flow Style, Astanga, Power) Yoga emphasizes longer flowing movement sequences, dynamic stretching exercises, clear intentions, set routines, vigorous exercises, and sweating. Chi Kung (Qigong, Dao Yin, Tai Chi) includes gentle and graceful flowing exercises and standing dynamic stretching exercises, energy (Chi or Qi) work, Taoist longevity practices, martial applications, and traditional exercise routines like the Animal Frolics, Brocades, or Dragons. We will also introduce participants to numerous ideas and techniques for reducing stress, lifting one’s mood, improving concentration, enjoying the moment, cultivating kindness and beauty, thinking clearly, contentment, tranquility, and exploring the integration of minds and bodies. Relatively fit persons of all ages are welcome, and alternative and safe postures will be taught.
