This introductory class offers you a rare opportunity to study with Martial Arts Master David Wei as he explains the foundational elements and Daoist principles of Qigong. Qi gong quite literally means 'Life Energy Cultivation.' It is a powerful, traditional Chinese practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness for exercise, healing, and meditation. In this course participants will learn the basic principles of the Wudang Healing Qigong system along with the complete Wudang Five Element Healing Qigong Form. Fundamentals such as posture, alignment, mechanics, balance, and breath will all be transmitted in depth along the course of this workshop intensive. Once participants are familiar with the fun of fundamentals, the subtle patterns of the Five Elementl set can be explored in depth.
