Chansi Gong
Jan 15 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

The Chansi Gong set specifically develops silk reeling energy, a kind of spiral movement connecting through the entire body. Chansi Gong builds internal power and cultivates the eight energies. In addition to promoting good health, these movements all have practical martial applications.

Chansi or “silk-reeling” Gong is a set of exercises that train the spiraling movements unique to the Chen-style Taiji system. This set also includes joint opening exercises. When the dantian qi is full and the joints are open, the spiraling movements of silk-reeling convey qi throughout the channels to connect all of the eighteen joints of the body together as one. This generates the tremendous power and fluidity of movement that is the hallmark of Chen style.

This class is also available on Tuesdays 6pm, Thursdays 7pm.

Chen-style Xinyi Hunyuan Taijiquan
Jan 15 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

The hallmarks of Chen Style Taijiquan are variation in speed, alternating soft and explosive movements, and a kind of spiraling movement known as Chansi jin (silk reeling energy). Emphasizing lower stances and a more energetic performance, Chen Style has forms suited for both beginning and advanced practitioners.

The Chen-style Xinyi Hunyuan Taijiquan system 陳式心意混元太極拳 (abbrev. Hunyuan Taiji) was developed by grandmaster Feng Zhiqiang 馮志強 and integrates Taoist internal training, qigong, Chen-style Taijiquan, and Xinyi quan (mind-intent boxing) into a comprehensive system. The Hunyuan Taiji system 混元太極 is set apart from other systems of Taiji by its emphases on nourishing the body and the use of mind-intent as fundamental to successful practice. It is both extremely practical and rooted in spiritual insight.

This class also available on Monday 6pm, Thursday 10am, Thursday 8pm, Saturday 10am.

Hunyuan Gong
Jan 16 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

The Hunyuan Gong set combines Taoist internal alchemy and martial Qigong methods in an extremely effective and elegant system. This set is designed to combine prenatal and postnatal qi to supplement the essential qi of the body.

The most important of the Gong methods, Hunyuan Gong is designed to accumulate qi from the environment and use it to augment our prenatal qi (our genetic inheritance). This opens the qi-meridians of the body, forms the middle dantian (where qi is stored in the body) and thus promotes health, prolongs life, deepens stillness, and increases power.
