Internal Essence Class Format:
Follow along exercises, no experience necessary. These classes focus on loosening and opening the body, connecting the breath, calming the mind, and relieving stress by following the guiding principles of various Chinese Internal Arts. Primary objectives are to develop strength, flexibility, and balance while refining awareness of Internal processes in the Body, Heart, and Mind.
A new approach will be taught throughout each month. Every month we will explore a different system or style of Chinese Internal Arts focusing on the principles of the Art. All classes during the month will cover the same material. The beginning portion of the class will focus on foundation exercises from an Art, and the latter part of the class will focus on a simple form that can be practiced throughout the month.
In June we will focus on the Art of Lok Hup Ba Fa, which my primary teacher Moy Lin Shin deemed the Cadillac of Internal Arts. Lok Hup Ba Fa integrates the principles of what we've been learning in the Internal Essence classes over the last 5 months. It encompasses aspects of many Internal Arts practices in one.
**New students are welcome to join online classes at the beginning of any month.
