Tuesday Morning Classes

Ongoing Chi Gung Class
9:00 - 10:00 AM

Chi Gung ( also spelled Qigong or Chi Kung ) is an ancient Chinese art of developing and using the internal energy of the body and the external energy of our surroundings. Through our Chi Gung courses you will learn the fundamental processes of moving energy within your body. The practice of Chi Gung is oriented toward health and meditation. These practices will boost your energy, reduce your stress level and awaken your body and mind. Once you learn a technique in one course, you can then incorporate that technique into the exercises from other courses and into your Tai Chi or other internal art forms. In this manner all of our courses are complementary parts of a comprehensive system of energy based on movement and meditation. Although they are complementary one does not need to practice Tai Chi in order to practice Chi Gung.

Wu Short Form Level 1 and Level 2
10:00 - 11:00 AM

Level 1 is designed to teach the basic movements of the Wu style short form. This is a perfect Tai Chi form for beginners. The Wu style short form consists of a sequence of 18 precisely choreographed movements practiced in a slow meditative manner, taking about four minutes to perform. This sequence of movements is specifically designed to help you develop calmness, flexibility, balance, coordination, ease of movement and stamina.

Level 2 adds greater depth to the short form, releasing major contractions of the body while smoothing out major exaggerations. We begin the work of balancing the left and right sides of the body, stabilizing the legs and spine and incorporating the cadence of bending and stretching into the form.

Wu Style Long Form
6:00 - 7:15 PM

This is a class of instruction for the traditional long form of the Wu style. It is a powerful small frame form filled with internal content. This form was passed through the Wu lineage from Wu Chien Chuan to Liu Hung Chieh. Liu formally passed his lineage to Master Bruce Frantzis. Steve Barowsky who teaches the classes at the Center For Internal Arts is a senior instructor for Master B.K. Frantzis. In the Tuesday evening session we focus on form instruction and correction. The focus of the Thursday evening sessions are the partner practices of Wu style Tai Chi with an emphasis on training sensitivity and understanding of the basic energies of Tai Chi through the use of the traditional sequence of patterns from Wu Style push hands.
