NEW: THE BTC TAI CHI GONGFU PROGRAM
The Mandarin term
does not actually mean martial arts, but rather any skill, ability, merit, or power developed through conscious effort over time. One may have gongfu in calligraphy, in cooking, in music, in teaching, woodworking, or car repair. In the art of Tai Chi, gongfu means developing certain essential qualities of mind/body/energy. These include:
Rooting; Relax/Release (sung); Centering and Calmness; Mind-Body Integration; Fluidity; The Eight Jings; Naturalness; Yi (Intentional Awareness); and Chi (life force).
Beginning this fall, Brookline Tai Chi will be offering a unique program that focuses on the development of Tai Chi Gongfu. These classes will improve and enhance the ability and energy of students of every level, from first-year beginners to advanced practitioners in their second or third decade of Tai Chi.
The Three Classes of Tai Chi Gongfu for Late Fall 2018:
Dan Lian (Single Move Power Training), Equipment Training, and Yi.
Standing Qigong for Health, Calm, and Inner Power.
