Taiji Shibashi Instructors Course July 22nd & 23rd, Aug 19th, Oct 14th & 15th 2017
The Taiji Qigong Shibashi (??) Instructor course is designed to provide Qigong instructors with all the tools and information needed to teach the Shibashi as true Qigong. The Shibashi (also known as the Eighteen Postures of Taiji Qigong) is a set of Qigong exercises based on Taiji that adheres to the rules governing Taiji stances (in particular, the Wuji stance). These stances are fundamentally important if the practitioner wishes to get the most out of the Qigong. Since the early 1980′s, when the Shibashi was introduced, in, the significance of the Taiji stances has been lost and their true use as Qigong has been diminished and the beneficial qualities have depleted. Without a solid base (root) there is a conflict of focus and the cognitive mind (Yi) cannot be fully focused on guiding the Qi. This being the case, during the course a lot of time is spent on attaining and recognizing proper posture.
