Taiji + PD (Qigong, sequence, applications, Taiji ball qigong, pushing hands, coiling Qigong , streching and strengthening – 5 classes – 15hrsThese classes are dedicated to learning, practicing and perfecting the basics of Taiji, depending on the level of the practitioner. You will learn the Taijiquan Yang style 112-forms sequence. People familiar with the entire sequence will work on forms correction, coordination of breathing, and continued improvement of their Taiji movements. In addition, learning and training applications will be introduced to improve the understanding and perception of various forms.
Qigong (included in Taiji+PD)
Qigong improves the circulation of Qi and blood in the body, calms the mind and helps achieve deep muscle relaxation. Training Taiji ball can serve both relaxation and strengthen the body. By properly adjusting the weight of the ball, one can focus on strengthening the back muscles, chest, arms and legs (heavier ball) or relaxation, coordination of the upper and lower parts of the body, work the chest and spine (lighter ball). Training the Taiji ball also strengthens the circulation of Qi. Coiling Qigong energizes the body and contributes to improving the ability to feel through the skin (called Skin Listening Jin).
Taiji Pushing Hands (included in Taiji+PD)Thanks to the pushing hands and centering training one can develop the ability to sense, respond, concentrate, and specific skills and techniques of neutralization. It deepens understanding of the functioning of one’s body and improves balance and rootedness. We learn which attitudes are beneficial and which should be avoided. Pushing hands is a step further in Taiji training. Strengthening and stretching exercises are aimed at improving overall physical fitness and at eliminating the adverse effects of the loss of body symmetry incurred as a result of our habits or exercise.
