Xing Shen Zhuang Fa
Xing Shen Zhuang Fa is a method of moving qi through the spine and limbs and giving shape to the spirit. This particular sequence of 10 movements will focus on different parts of the spine and help students take care of obstructions in the physical and energy body. Xing Shen Zhuang has been adopted in Chinese hospitals both as a cure and rehabilitative therapy.
Tai Chi Chuan DaoRen
Tai Chi Chuan DaoRen is a short version based on the Traditional Yang Family form. It contains 8 classical movements – Ward-off, Rollback, Press, Push, Pull Down, Shoulder, Elbow, and Split. Its unhurried pace promotes relaxation, centering, joy, and inner peace. Among older people it can develop flexibility, balance, and mobility. Regular performance of Tai Chi Chuan improves muscle tone and blood pressure and can help develop concentration, serenity, and discipline. After more than 40 years of practicing the art, Rene J. Navarro choreographed this form showing the reality of energy as the student moves from posture to posture. The form takes you to different levels of experience the way Tai Chi Chuan should be done: magical, playful, and shamanic.
