Qigong (chi kung) Classes in Guelph
Qigong is a Chinese form of movement therapy that builds and trains Qi in the body. Sometimes referred to as Chinese yoga, the practice combines movement & mediation as a way to integrate mind & body. Because of its long history, there are hundreds of different forms with as many different styles to teaching as there are teachers.

Chen style Taiji is the oldest form of Taiji. It is characterized by slow, flowing circular movements that are punctuated by quick and powerful bursts. It is a tradition that integrates health, fitness and martial skill. I teach the lineage as taught by Grandmaster Chen Zheng-lei.

Hebei style Xingyi is a martial art that uses direct economical techniques & straight-line movements. Its foundation training is based on the Five Phases theories. I teach the lineage as taught by Di Guoyong, founding member of the Beijing Xingyi Quan Research Association.

Bagua is characterized by its circle-walking training & circular, turning techniques. The classes focuses on Magui & Jiang styles Bagua. The Magui lineage makes use of full body power to quickly build internal strength at the outset, while Jiang style trains coiling power to coordinate movements & generate power.

" Knowing others is intelligent. Knowing yourself is enlightened.
Conquering others takes force. Conquering yourself is true strength. "
Tao Te Jing. Chapter 33, transl. by S Addiss & S Lombardo
