Internal Arts (Qi Gong, Tai Chi)
“Qi Gong is the art and science of refining and cultivating internal energy.” – Ken Cohen
The practice of internal arts is the cultivation of life source energy. It bestows vitality, health and a deeper understanding of your interior nature. The art of qi gong and tai chi teaches its students how to be in harmony with themselves, the earth around them and the heavens above. How are we moving through the world? Where are we weak? Where are we strong? When you hold a pose or when you move through poses you increase the flow of blood and qi (energy) in the meridians*, build strength and help your body heal.
We cannot just sit and contemplate life, we must also use our bodies, know our bodies, and enhance our self-awareness through this engagement. Internal arts bring the interior and exterior realm together which engenders natural flow between you and the world around you.
*life source channels of energy that run along the body.
