Between 500-550AD Bodhidharma a Yoga adept traveled from India to China to spread Buddhism. When visiting a Shaolin Temple he encountered Monks who although enlightened spiritually, their bodies were weak and frail. He taught these Monks a series of muscle and tendon strengthening exercises that later became known as the healing system of Qigong. Qigong is one of the components of Chinese Medicine along with acupuncture, herbs, and massage. Since Qigong is so old and practiced throughout China, many different forms developed.
On Saturday I’ll be teaching a five movement form called The Five Treasures that I learned from Master Song Arun, who resides in Eastern France. He was the Master that suggested that I teach. He recently returned from a trip where he was invited to meet the Dalai Lama at his summer residence in India.
On Sunday you’ll learn The Eight Pieces of Brocade one of the most popular and widely practiced form in the world. It would be wonderful if you could attend both days, but each day can stand alone if you are not able to attend both.
All fitness and experience levels are welcome from beginners to advanced. And videos of masters performing these forms appear on my website AshevilleQigong.com so you will have a free easily accessible tool to assist your continued practice at home.
