Yin-Yang Theory Applied in Everyday Life

I think this blog post will be enlightening for Taiji people if you can avoid getting hung up on the politics.

Yin-Yang Theory Applied in Everyday Life

I tell my students--or at least I used to tell the back in the days before Covid, when we could engage in contact exercises--that what they learn in applying the principles of Yin and Yang from Taijiquan is that what they learn in the studio in performing martial applications is not nearly as valuable as what they might learn from applying the principles to human interactions in everyday life....

Chinese Terms in Taijiquan and Qigong Study

Recently one of my students alerted me to research in medical journals about the use of Qigong against Covid. I was surprised to see that the Qigong routines named in the research articles were identified only in Chinese (Pinyin), even in those articles published in American based journals. This fact made me think further about the need to transmit Chinese terminology to the people I teach in Taijiquan and Qigong....

Keeping Spirits Up 02/14/2021

Keeping Spirits Up

When I teach Qigong, I often remind people of the damage uncontrolled emotions can do to your health. Sadness, grief, sorrow, and pessimism can damage the lungs, the heart, the immune system, and your spirit, which is so necessary to your wellbeing. Right now with the isolation caused by the Covid pandemic, the turmoil in American politics (for us Americans and perhaps others), and who knows what happening to us individually, how can we avoid depressing feelings and erosion of spirit?...

The Eight Pieces of Brocade Medical Qigong

This routine is almost 1,000 years old. It is one of the most widely practiced Qigong routines and is widely prescripted by TCM doctors for relieving a variety of illnesses and for improving overall health. I learned this version from my teacher, Dr. Yang, Jwing Ming. The video is from our May 2 online class.

Standing Meditation in Wuji Posture

The masters say, it seems like you aren't doing anything, but you are accomplishing a great deal (for your root, center, and Qi circulation). I wonder if in our modern age we are still capable of being still.

Taiji, Qigong, and Immunity

In today’s Washington Post Health & Science section there is an article titled “Science tackles how immunities decline with age.” The issue that prompts the article is, of course, the corona virus, and its particularly strong impact on older adults. The article also points out that the seasonal flus have a similar impact on older adults. For example, during the 2018-2019 flu season, three out of every four persons who died from the flu were age 65 and older. [ 485 more words ]

Yang Family Tai Chi

I am looking for a break in the weather to go outdoors and video myself doing the outdoor (no pun intended) version of the Yang long form. Rain, of course, is not good for me or the video equipment. Temps below 65 aren't good either because at my age they make me a bit stiff, and I don't want to wear a hoodie because it will obscure my waist movements, presuming that the temp is warm enough for my waist and spine to move. A low pollen count would be nice as well. Meanwhile, any Qi Elements members, past, present, and future, who are afraid that they are forgetting the sequence can purchase a very good instructional video from the Yang Family website. https://yangfamilytaichi.com/ Yes, we are still teaching this legacy form from Qi Elements' founder. It seems that most members are reluctant to go back to being a beginner and learn the indoor form from me.

yangfamilytaichi.com We are an association of over 80 Centers and Schools around the world teaching tai chi chuan as passed down from the Yang family.
