CHI KUNG AND MEDITATION
Chi Kung and meditation practices are the strong roots of Tai Chi Chuan and many other styles and systems of martial arts.
These practices emphasize the importance of proper breathing along with fluid movement, helping the student reach a state of inner calm and stillness. These time tested techniques promote the balanced flow of energy throughout the body and contribute to overall mental and physical health benefits. Over time students report feeling happier, with a sense of inner peace, having more resilience in the face of worldly stress, as well as expanded awareness of the meaning and beauty of life.
