Tai Chi for Bone Density and Hip Health

Explore the Healing Aspect of Tai Chi in this 8 Week workshop with Daniel Pikelin

This 8 class series is open to anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of taiji movement and is suitable for beginners.

The focus is on becoming aware of the force of gravity creating torque as we shift and turn throughout selected sections of the Tai Chi form. This results in an increase in the Circulation of Chi in the body, particularly through the legs, hips, abdominal area and lower spine.

Ancient Chinese Medicine wisdom correlates this rooting of the body to our kidney energy, which relates to the health of the bones. The kidneys are the prime organ required for the maintenance of health and to achieve longevity. As we age our leg muscles, "our pumps", become less efficient to keep fluids moving. We generally call this sensation "stiffness". And this is where Tai Chi comes in to assist in reversing stiffness and prolong life.

Shiba Luohan Gong "Eighteen Immortals Qigong"

6 Week workshop (Luohan postures 9-14) with Dondrub Wangchuk

Shiba Luohan Gong was created 1500 years ago by a Buddhist monk, Da Mo, and taught to the Shaolin Monks in China to improve their health and stamina. The movements combine breathing and visualization as well as strengthening and stretching to recondition the joints, increase range of motion, and energize the body. The Luohan set is incredibly fun and invigorating.

In this workshop I will teach the next 6 postures of the complete set, we will also review postures 1-8. No prior experience with this set is needed.
