Harmony Tai Chi Chuan- In search of immortality and the ability to harmonize their personal energy with universal energy, ancient Chinese life science practitioners discovered how to prolong and enhance life through longevity practices. Tai Chi is an ancient moving meditation with many mind, body and spiritual benefits, including balancing the three energy centers of the body. Many people practice Tai Chi to reduce stress, balance emotions, increase awareness, boost energy, sharpen the mind, develop internal strength, improve the immune system, or strengthen the digestion. Some practice for self-realization, spiritual growth, or a deeper understanding of their own life energy and some people practice just for fun, exercise or relaxation. Harmony Tai Chi is a beautiful form that is part of the Ni Family heritage, embodying the spirit of the Tao Te Ching. Mastery of the form helps one to gain balance and harmony, and a deeper understanding and sense of Qi. ☯️
Thursdays, 8:00-9:00 AM, Dao-Yin Yoga, Snohomish Brown
Dao-Yin Yoga, which means energy conducting union, is a system of gentle stretches that nurtures and invigorates personal energy and attunes it to maximize vitality. Dao-Yin is part of the Taoist Immortal cultivation tradition and is also part of the Taoist medical system, like physical therapy. Because Dao-Yin energizes and conducts your energy through certain specific channels or meridians in the body, it can also break up and dissipate emotional problems. It is especially effective for people who sit too much or for those who have their energy concentrated in their heads. Snohomish Brown is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and a Licensed Acupuncturist who has been teaching Qi Gong Energy Cultivation and Thai Chi for over twelve years. He will guide you through many postures and stretches accessible to almost anyone involved in any circumstance. And for the serious student in search of longevity and spiritual immortality, the foundation is here.
