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.
**New students are welcome to join classes at the beginning of any month.
Internal Arts explored will start with Qigong in January. Moy Style Tai Chi for February. Future months will include Huang Style Tai Chi, Chen Style Tai Chi, Lok Hup Ba Fa, Xing Yi Five elements, Baguazhang, Swimming Dragon, Yiquan, and others.
