This program concentrates on the deeper, internal aspects of old style Kung Fu. It uses a clever combination of physical movement, chi cultivation, and meditation to draw together mind, body, and breath.
Create mental calm and focus, physical health and fitness, relaxed breathing, and well-balanced chi.
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 focused 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’ (Qi) 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 complement 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.
Take the first step on a transformational journey of discovery and self mastery and unleash your true power.
Invest in the rest of your life
To see in detail what a day in the Internal Kung Fu Program involves, please take a look at our timetable. It runs five days a week – Wednesdays and Saturdays are rest days and are ideal for exploring our local area.
You can choose to begin and end on whatever days suit you best. We do suggest arriving on one of the rest days – Saturday or Wednesday – so as to settle in and be ready to begin at 6.00AM the next day. For an idea of what you will learn through following this course, check our sample packages.
