QIGONG, INTERNAL KUNG FU AND MEDITATION PROGRAM

Our ‘Qigong, Internal Kung Fu and Meditation Program’ concentrates on the deeper aspects of old style kung fu: the secrets of the ancient Masters! It teaches use of the breath to link body with mind so as to strengthen overall being.

Real strength comes from the body working as a whole, not as isolated parts. It stems as much from the fascia – the tendinous tissue which runs right through our bodies – as it does from the muscle. It rises up from the feet like a wave. And it begins in the mind – strong action stems from strong intention, strong intention arises from a focussed mind.

Real wisdom is the realm of a calm and fully connected mind. We train our minds through our bodies and connect the creative with the analytic minds, the body brain with the head brain, the conscious with the subconscious. There is philosophy in movement. Calm, steady flow. Patient and accurate. Flexible.

Healthy ‘chi’ is healthy energy. It is the foundation of a healthy body and healthy mind. It flows through the body guided by the mind. Mind body and chi (breath / energy) are inseparable and need to be trained together.

This program uses a clever combination of physical movement, chi cultivation and meditation to draw together mind, body and breath so as to compliment and strengthen each other. It delivers mental calm and focus, physical health and fitness, strong, relaxed breathing and vigorous, well balanced chi. It is less strenuous than our Shaolin Warrior Program and is ideal for less aggressive people, less fit or older people wanting to concentrate more on internal development, raised consciousness and good health. It is also a great way for people with a yoga background to explore ancient Chinese exercise.

It covers:

  • Shuang Yang Pei Ho: the Frost Sun White Crane Soft and Gentle Art, including the cane routine.
  • Sum Chien: the internal power building exercise of Shaolin Kung Fu.
  • The Tong Ling Qigong (Chi Kung) system.
  • Bodhidharma’s Vein Tendon Qigong.
  • Meditation.
  • Relaxation training.
  • Qigong / kung fu breathing techniques.
