Qi Gong/Chi Kung and Tai Ji Quan/Tai Chi Chuan

Qi Gong and Tai Ji Quan are human physical manifestations of the Tao:  stillness and movement, softness and firmness, sensory awareness and response, Yin and Yang.  Focusing on breath, relaxation, balance and flexibility can lead to an increasing awareness of both our internal and the external environments.  In this class we will learn and practice Wu Ji and Soaring Crane qi gong; Yi quan standing meditation; stretching; tai ji walking; a Yang style tai ji quan form; and push hands double exercises.
