Tai Chi & Qigong at awake BOULDER
These classes include practices from both Tai Chi and Qigong.
Tai Chi (or more correctly, Tai Chi Chuan) started as a martial art first. However, hundreds of millions of people now practice it for its health benefits and mindful aspects. It is a gentle form of movement that promotes relaxation, flexibility and balance of body and mind. Consequently, tai chi is often described as “meditation in motion.” It is deeply rooted in Daoist principles. Because of this, at the core of the practice is its observance of nature. As well as the natural flow of life. Indeed, it is from this harmony we can discover our very essence. That of inner peace and stillness. With this intention, Tai Chi at awake BOULDER has a focus on health and wellness.
The first type of Qigong taught at awake BOULDER is of an “active” kind. Gentle movements blend with mindful and calm breathwork. Accordingly, this promotes the movement of blood and qi (life force energy) throughout our bodies for health and healing. Qigong can help ground us by quieting the mind. And bring our awareness back to the present moment. As well as into our bodies. Our practice is open to all ages and abilities. Lastly, they can be adapted to meet the needs of each student.
