WHAT ARE CHI GONG & TAI CHI?
"The ultimate stress relieving & health producing tools". With their flowing & relaxing movements, Chi Gong (aka: Chinese Yoga) and Tai Chi Chuan.... often described as "moving meditations".... are two of the fastest growing forms of Body-Mind-Spirit & Longevity exercises in the West!
These gentle yet dynamic exercises have been proven to reduce blood pressure, increase energy levels, and improve posture, balance & overall health. They have also shown themselves to be powerful "Centering" tools for dealing with daily stress at home and at work.
CHI GONG & TAI CHI in PARADISE?
Whether you are a Novice, Advanced Practitioner or a Seasoned Teacher.... this is an opportunity to learn something new...or ...up-level your current skills. And to truly "immerse yourself" in these ancient physical & spiritual practices.... while exploring some of the most beautiful ancient cultures & temples on Earth!
PSYCHO-ENERGETIC CHI GONG?
Is a unique set of Chi Gong (internal energy/Chinese Yoga) exercises that each act as an effective antidote or "Balancing Tonic" to a specific types of common, stressful psychological life challenges.
This retreat is purposefully limited to only 15 people to allow for a very unusual approach to the learning process. Unlike a standard class or retreat where the curriculum is decided on primarily by the instructor.... At "Chi Gong & Tai Chi In Paradise" retreats each participant will receive a short form to fill out where you can list the areas you are interested in exploring & learning more about. So....if you desire.... "you" get to design your curriculum according to your own needs & interests!... *(for Beginners and all others who would prefer more guidance, I have a wonderfully designed curriculum for you). We have used this approach for numerous retreats and have found it to be very effective in meeting 90+% of what the participants request. Join us in paradise and enjoy this unique personalized learning experience!
TUI SHOU/PUSH HANDS?
The quality of our life depends on our ability to deal gracefully and effectively with two basic elements of human existence..INTERACTION & CHANGE!
Tui Shou or "interactive/two person Tai Chi" teaches us how we can create balance in all of life's situations. It is truly the "Life Teacher" in the Tai Chi system.
Maintaining BALANCE DURING CHANGE is a crucial skill for creating a life of harmony, power & joy!
During the retreat you will learn several different techniques for "Applying the Principles" of Chi Gong & Tai Chi to your life and relationships.
“Changing how you respond to the world is often as good as changing the world.”
