These classes offer a combination and a progression of the main topics listed above/below. Generally starting with basic adjustments and alignment of the body, breath and mind. You will practice standing meditation, gentle stretching movements that will help focusing and settling your body, breath, mind/ intentions and the 'chi' on inner peace, chi flow, happiness, external/ internal balance, emotional cleansing. Good volume of 'chi' is achieved through enhanced deep breathing and gentle movements and stretching of the main meridians and physical body.

A good and constant intention and companion in practice is the inner focus on 'letting go'. Letting go of the negative, old and stale energy and collecting and storing 'new, fresh, clean, refined' energy in your system whilst smiling, using your Mind, and reaching a deep meditating or Chi gong state.

The main goal of these practices is high quality QI GONG meditation and a serene, blissful experience.

Song of Central Equilibrium

"We are centered,
stable and still as a mountain.
Our qi sinks to the dantian.
We are as if suspended from above.
Our Spirit is concentrated within and
our outward manner perfectly composed.
Receiving and issuing energy are both the work of an instant."

- Classical Taijiquan poem
