This class will focus solely on learning this form. We will then progress to studying the flow of Yin and Yang and how that energy change is creating the movement of the body. Some attention will be paid to martial application, kwa action and the flow of chansijin in these movements. David learned this form from Master Jou, Tsung Hwa.

Beginner Wu, Yu Xiang (hao) 108 Long Form

April 4, 2017 – Tuesday 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

This Class will focus solely on learning this form. Wu, Yu Xiang studied Chen Style with Chen, Qingping in Zhaobao Village and Yang Style with Yang Luchan. After studying the Taiji Classics found in the Salt Shop in Wuyang in Henan Province and practicing diligently he developed his own style which our Grand teacher Master Jou felt was so highly developed "that the only possible evolution beyond it was formlessness". He felt this form offered the greatest opportunity for spiritual growth. Eventually we focus on that aspect. This practice was taught to David by Dr. Jay Dunbar, Master Jou's senior student.

"Quickly raises the energy levels of the body to boost your natural healing capacities."

Dragon and Tiger Medical Qigong is a 1,500-year-old self-healing movement system based 
on acupuncture. It is sometimes called "meridian-line qigong" because it helps free you of energetic (chi) blockages by balancing the chi flow that runs through the acupuncture 
meridians or energy channels of your body.

Dragon and Tiger Qigong is especially renowned for simultaneously accomplishing three major changes in the body: " Releases stagnant chi that cannot move freely. Stagnant 
chi can be located anywhere there is a physical, emotional or psychic blockage of energy. 'Increases the speed, strength and evenness of the circulation of chi, blood and other fluids. 
This balances the body's energy.''

Taoist Water Method Meditation 7 - Neigong

Not Meeting This Session

Neigong can be defined as work with the internal energy already present in the body. So this is different from Qigong which is focused on drawing energy into the body and using the breath to lead it to wherever it is needed.

In this two year series of classes we will be focused on the Taoist Water Method. We will begin with learning to breathe. This Taoist method is called Longevity Breathing and is the basis of much of our work over the next two years. We continue with becoming aware of and present to the blockages in each of our first four energy bodies and how to release that blocked energy. This is based on both outer and inner dissolving practices which can, at the very least, help us to live with less stress and improve health by dissolving the internal blockages we have accumulated previously in our life.

Spiritual Philosophy in the Tao Te Ching

April 8, 2017 – Saturdays 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. Every Other Week

Wang is reputed to have authored The T'ai Chi Classic, alleged by the Wu brothers to have been found as part of the Salt Shop Manuals in the mid 19th century. This treatise records many classic t'ai chi principles; among them: "four ounces deflect one thousand pounds" and "a feather cannot be added; nor can a fly alight". The T’ai Chi Classic is among a body of literature collectively referred to as the T'ai chi classics by many t'ai chi ch'uan schools. The T'ai Chi Classic is considered one of the three primary Classics essential to a full understanding of T’ai Chi Ch’uan principles and applications.
