Daoist Taiji Stick and Ruler Neigong (Qigong)

Tuesdays

10:30am-12:00pm

Thursdays

9:00am-10:30am

New 9-week series start Tuesday January 2nd & Thursday January 4th 2018!

 

 

Benefits from this Unique Training:

    1    The Taiji stick and ruler practice helps to prevent overuse injuries as it strengthens the wrists, tendons and muscles.

    2    It develops hand, wrist and arm strength.  If you notice that you are losing hand and arm strength in performing daily tasks, such as turning the tap, opening jars and bottles, you will find a significant improvement after practicing the Taiji stick and ruler practice.

    3    It teaches you to feel and integrate your core strength with arm movements.  

    4    It improves coordination and balance.

    5    Taiji stick and ruler practice will improve your circulation. No more cold hands and feet!

    6    This practice will improve your digestion. Since your digestive system is the keystone for the rest of the physiology of the body, one can extend this to improve all the systems of the body.

    7    Learn to nourish your QI! This practice will have lasting effects on your nervous system and your capacity to relax more profoundly.

   8    Practicing the Taiji stick and ruler neigong regularly will improve your internal power and Taiji quan skill without you even being aware of it.

   9    Cultivate a quiet mind and still heart.
