Start the new year right! For this one day workshop we will learn a complete set of coiling silk (chan si) qigong exercises to unwind fascia and unravel tension. Apply the three dynamic principles of continuity, circularity, and complementarity (polarity) to your daily life. This is the foundation of the Cloud Hands movement found in tai chi.
Coiling Silk emphasizes movement that unlocks joints, creates spirals and the circular flow of vital force or qi throughout the entire body. Increase flexibility, agility, concentration, and freedom of movement without pain or strain. Decrease stress, tension, and improve the relaxation response.
Additionally, we will explore a few mountain Taoist meditations and poetry to help us face the challenge of retreating from the world vs. engaging and changing it.
