Study Qigong

Qigong instruction focuses on helping the student achieve a wonderful sense of physical well-being, a calm mind, balanced emotions and a deeper sense of purpose.

Spring Qigong Workshops at Tibet House:

12 Taoist Rejuvenations:  rejuvenating and harmonizing your 3 dan tians (Physical/Emotional/Spiritual energy centers) to cultivate harmonious grace.

22W. 15th St, 2nd floor, NYC, 10011    10am-5pm

Saturday April 21, Sunday May 20, Saturday June 16.

My teacher Kwan Sai-hung (still going strong at 97!) would always say: “If you want to stay young and beautiful, do the 12 Taoist Rejuvenations!” Taught at the famous Hua Shan Monastery in northern China (where Mr. Kwan began his Taoist practice), Mr. Kwan said that the ladies of the imperial court of the Ching dynasty (18th and 19th centuries) practiced this set to preserve their youth and beauty and become wise.

Today this set is extremely potent in rejuvenating and harmonizing your Physical/Emotional/Spiritual energies and cultivating harmonious grace. These Physical/Emotional/Spiritual energies correspond to the 3 energy centers (dan tians or elixir fields) at your navel, heart center and Third Eye respectively. Initially these 3 centers are like “unruly children or monsters” and through this practice become like “3 sages.” You become physically strong and healthy, emotionally balanced and intelligent, and spiritually wise and conscious. You move with your own natural rhythm in a state of harmonious grace: Nothing bothers you, anything is possible, you know what has to be done for the greater good, and you have the energy and power to do it now!

The Taoist Rejuvenations is easily my favorite set to do. If I could only do one set, this would be the one. So pleasing to my body, uplifting to my spirit, so beautiful to behold, with forms including the Sea Horse, Crane Spreading Its Wings, Divine Frog, Turtle, Swimming Dragon, and Rising Phoenix. To master this set is to become a true Qigong practitioner!

All three of the workshops will focus on this set. One can take the workshops individually, but it is highly recommended that, to get a firm grasp of this set, that you take all three.

Everyone is welcome! No previous experience is necessary..
