Through fluid, yet controlled movements, Tai Chi enables you to restore the natural balance of mind and body. As the flowing postures are performed, the internal organs receive a mild massage and the joints are gently stretched. This action releases blocked energy and stress throughout the body and refreshes your mind.

Discover within this set of gentle movements an ability to eliminate tension and restore your health and vitality. The regular practice of Tai Chi is well known to improve chronic conditions, increase strength and stamina and boost the immune system. Being easy to learn, this mini-set is ideal both for beginners and those wishing to add to their Tai Chi experience.

In this DVD, Brad leads you through several warm-up movements that prepares the body and mind for doing the Yang Flow Set. The mini-set itself is then demonstrated four times, first using balance steps, then without, for more advanced practice. Both front and back angles are used to facilitate easier learning and following along.

Tai Chi Silk Reeling

Silk Reeling" is a foundational Tai Chi exercise that mimics pulling silk from a silk worm's cocoon. This exacting and precise movement creates and develops all the principles and qualities that are within the Internal Art of Tai Chi.

The soft, flowing, yet controlled movements yield many benefits for the mind and body. In particular, Tai Chi Silk Reeling will develop leg/hip strength and flexibility, help with releasing stress and tension as, well as, relieve shoulder stiffness and pain.

This system thoroughly, yet gently, activates and energizes your joints, the "Energy Gates" of the body, triggering a strong overall energy flow, as well as, having a cleansing, purging effect on the lymph glands.

And because Silk Reeling directly stimulates and mobilizes the spine, it can play a major role in overall health and fitness, including boosting the immune system.

Silk Reeling has much value as a stand alone system of exercises and/or as a foundational practice to develop and refine one's level of Tai Chi.

The entire collection of Silk Reeling Exercises can be performed as a thorough mind/body workout, stimulating greater energy flow and building strength. Or individual moves can be practiced for a quick, convenient, stress reliever and energy-boost, re-setting your mind/body system to invigorate the rest of your day.

Chi Gong

(Qigong), a predecessor of Tai Chi, is an ancient system of healing and rejuvenation. It can be translated to mean: ‘skillfully working with your vital energy‛. Learn to direct your mind, breath and body together as a unified force to alleviate chronic conditions or simply to build your energy levels, strength and vitality. These healthful, stress-reducing techniques can be easily learned and practiced anywhere, requiring only a few minutes a day for a direct and positive influence on your mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Chi Gong can be translated as, “working with your vital energy”. It is an ancient Chinese system of healing and rejuvenation. It involves using your mind, breath and body to direct the flow of energy.

This energy, or 'chi', is the "bio-electricity" that moves in and around your body.

By learning to direct your mind, breath and body together as a unified force, you gain the ability to build your internal energy and alleviate chronic conditions.

Chi Gong meditation and exercises provide effective tools for you to relax and recharge the body’s energy, stimulating it’s natural ability to heal itself. It’s practice ultimately leads to an increased sense of mind/body connection and control over your health.

EASY TO LEARN - POWERFUL RESULTS!

Chi Gong’s healthful, stress-reducing techniques can be easily learned and practiced anywhere requiring only a few minutes a day for a direct and positive influence on your mental, emotional and physical well-being.

Through Chi Gong you have a simple and direct way to actively stimulate your body's natural tendency toward health.

THE BODY INNATELY KNOWS HEALTH

A healthy, balanced mind and body is our natural state. Problems develop when we get off-track and out of balance. This can happen due to stress, physical or mental trauma, injury or simply being pulled "off" by a busy, hectic lifestyle.

By losing our inner connection, we come out of alignment. Chi Gong is the art and skill of sensing our health and energy states and consciously, actively cultivating a state of vibrant well-being.

With practice, you acquire the ability to sense the impact you are having on your health moment to moment. And you develop the capacity to immediately and directly adjust that influence.

By tapping into the body's innate wisdom, you are guided and supported in the choosing of proper foods to eat, environments and activities to be involved in, and the dissolving of negative habits and behaviours.

Through Chi Gong practice a dialogue is opened between you and your body. A rapport and partnership is nurtured that is powerfully life-affirming. Rather than health or "unhealth" being something that "just happens" to you, this internal art nourishes a conscious partnership with your body and Nature, the source from which it springs.

TAKE CHARGE!

This conscious partnership allows you to take charge of your energy, mind, health ..... and life!

BENEFITS YOU CAN EXPECT FROM PRACTICING CHI GONG:
  • improved health
  • happier, calmer attitude
  • clearer, more peaceful state of mind
  • reduced stress
  • improved metabolism & digestion
  • more energy & vitality
  • happier, calmer attitude
  • greater ability to relax
  • clearer skin
  • brighter eyes
  • greater intuition
