Qigong for Health
Our MODERN SECULAR approach views Qigong (Chi Kung) NOT as some mystical cult
imported from China, but simply as a concept that literally translates from Chinese
as “to work and develop skill through energy” and as such is embedded in
ANY form of focussed exercise and training including both Tai Chi Qigong
practised through health and exercise programs, and also Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan)
and martial Qigong practised as various fighting arts.
Our Gentle Way of Tai Chi Mirror Chi Kung approach assists in all aspects of participating in class,
in particular, understanding the concepts and strategies of “copying and following”
and engaging the power of the mind.
The spelling Chi Kung is the old “Wades Giles” and
Qigong is the so-called phonetic and modern Pinyin spelling.
Gentle Way Tai Chi Mirror Chi Kung
The efficient use of energy combined with an effective way of learning any martial form, movement, sequence or application whether for health, relaxation or self-defence. The heuristic mirror-method of learning, teaching and practicing generally is examined and provides the rationale for what is described here as Tai Chi Chi Kung Freestyle Form, as a non-standard form or sequence of movements as a means to create an awareness that focused practice does not have to rely on remembering a specific choreographed sequence such as the standard form, kata, pattern or routine in any martial art.

Hooked on Speed
Don’t be a slave to any predetermined sequence.
Let the freestyle sequence of slow and controlled deflect anxiety and stress,
training your mind to find a rhythm and pattern that neutralizes anger and pain
reflected in the rear-view mirror of life.
Be motivated through the discipline of sustained effort, drills, repetition with focussed practice,
don’t become a victim to rage in life or on the road and hooked on speed.
Go with the flow, more power to you!!
