Taranaki Tai Chi Chuan Association, in association with the Wushu Culture Association & Qigong Clinic (Auckland), is proud to present the 2018 visit of the Delegation of the International Health Qigong Federation and Chinese Health Qigong Association.

A special free open class of Health Qigong will be held on the Friday night followed by two full days of workshop presented by Professor Yang Yu Bing (Associate Professor of the Department of Daoyin Yang Sheng Gong of the prestigious Beijing Sport University) and Professor Li Zheng En (National Chinese Health Qigong Instructor).

The Saturday Workshop is centered around the Daoyin Yang Sheng Gong Shi Er Fa - 12 Methods of Guiding The Chi. The 12-movement qigong form presented is taken from over 50 forms developed by Professor Zhang Guangde, one of the world's leading qigong teachers, and can be practised in both seated and standing positions.

The movements are graceful and easy to learn, and are based on the tenets of Chinese Medicine, working with the Zang Fu organs (comprising the heart, liver, spleen, lung, kidney, gall bladder, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and bladder), the meridians, balancing yin-yang, the Five Elements, and Qi and blood. Through integrating breathing exercises into Yangsheng, the 12 steps are effective for promoting good health, preserving life and cultivating the spirit, and they are suitable for all ages.

The Sunday Workshop is on Da Wu Health Qigong - The Healing Dance. The graceful joint-relaxing dance-like exercises of Da Wu, an ancient qigong, originated from the Tang Yao Period (about 4,000 years ago) and is a health-preserving method which channels the joints and dredges the meridians.
Da Wu lays stress on flexing movements and the rotation of joints throughout the body to help improve health and wellbeing.

It is simple and graceful, smooth and flexible, coordinated with mind and Qi enhancing upper limb strength, flexibility, balance, and cardiovascular system function, and improving mood. A beneficial and easy qigong form for practitioners of all levels, including beginners and of special interest to anyone interested in the ancient qigong forms.

Limited spaces only are available due to space constraints. Pre-registration and payment is required. Email taranakitaichichuan@gmail.com for more information or to request a registration form. The Weekend Workshop is $140.00 per person (Taranaki Tai Chi Chuan Association Member) or $160.00 per person (Non-Member).
