Chi Gong

Tai Chi is a traditional Chinese martial art known for its gentle movements and focus on internal energy flow. In this class, we will delve into the essence of Tai Chi by emphasizing the four Chi Gong breath exercises. These exercises form the foundation of Tai Chi Chuan, helping practitioners cultivate their inner energy, or Chi, through controlled breathing techniques. By mastering these breath exercises, students will enhance their physical movements and deepen their mind-body connection.

Every week, we build on the Four Chi Gong Exercises.


The first Chi Gong breath exercise focuses on deep abdominal breathing, promoting relaxation and centering the mind. This exercise helps students develop a strong foundation for their Tai Chi practice by improving their breath control and increasing their energy flow. The second exercise emphasizes the coordination of breath with movement, teaching students how to synchronize their breathing patterns with the flowing motions of Tai Chi. This harmonious integration of breath and movement is essential for achieving a state of calmness and focus during practice.
Moving on, the third Chi Gong breath exercise concentrates on expanding the lower abdomen while inhaling and contracting it while exhaling. This exercise aims to enhance the circulation of energy throughout the body, promoting vitality and strength. Lastly, the fourth exercise focuses on refining the breath to be smooth, continuous, and effortless. By mastering these foundational Chi Gong breath exercises, students will lay a solid groundwork for their Tai Chi journey, unlocking the full potential of this ancient martial art..
