Tai Chi and Qigong offer us so much more than simply moving our bodies. Each discipline has a complex history, is embedded with rich philosophical concepts, stories, mysteries and practicalities. Both have their roots in the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic dated from the 3rd Century BCE, and grew up on the famous mountains of China including Song, Wudang, Emei, Hua and Tai.
Why do you need to know more than the routines? Because the theory behind them, how to research more information, what they are based on, where their philosophical, canonical and medicinal roots are will continue to influence and develop your practice for the rest of your life.
So, join us on the start of this fascinating journey into what lies behind and beyond the basic practice of any Routine.
What are “The 10 Important Points of Practice” and why are they so “Important”? Learn about these pivotal concepts along with a few others.
