My personal life experience taught me that Tai Chi Qigong is not only a source of tranquility.
In 2018 I fell and broke my left elbow. My physician wanted to operate on my arm and provided me with standard medicines, but I refused. I decided, instead, to rely only on the daily practice of Tai Chi Qigong. To the astonishment of everyone my elbow got 100% healed after three months of daily practice of Qigong.
Now I know that Tai Chi Qigong is also a tool for physical recovery and great enforcement of well-being.
By 2018 I already practiced Tai Chi for more than 15 years. While spending some time in China in 2003, I enhanced my practice with the well-known master Wing Cheung, learning both Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi (for healing) and the basics of Tai Chi Martial Arts.
I am not a stranger to alternative medicine or sports; in my youth, I was a competitive runner, and in my 20s I started practicing Yoga every day. For over twenty-five years I have been following a daily routine of a balanced diet, sports, Yoga, Tai Chi, and meditation. I have two teaching credentials (in Special Ed and Visual Arts) and an MFA degree in Art from Claremont Graduate University, CA.
I work as an illustrator of books and a teacher and currently reside in Alabama, USA.
Join my online or in-person classes, and let’s enjoy harmony and well-being together.
About Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi:
Tai chi originated as an ancient martial art in China. Over the years, it has become more focused on health promotion and rehabilitation. I concentrate on teaching Qigong Shibashi, which is a particular form within the practice of Tai Chi Qigong. It involves controlled breathing and a series of slow gentle movements. Its state is meditative in nature, hence it is called by many “moving meditation”. It can be done anywhere, both indoors and outdoors, and at times it is practiced in large groups.
The movements of Shibashi are slow and graceful, and their rhythm echoes the flow of water. One does not need to be in perfect physical shape to benefit from the routine as movements can be adjusted to any particular physical condition. The practice brings students to a state of calmness and joy, and after a while, it can be done at home without a trainer.
In my class, I use relaxing music and add self-massage of the meridians (acupressure points) to the routine. I also bring along some practices from Tai Chi Wudang, to strengthen the body and some light exercises from the Feldenkrais methods. Within a short time, my students usually reach a state in which they acquire more self-control over their body and mind and a great sense of inner strength and tranquility.
