Welcome and A Brief Introduction
Wuji Qigong (無極氣功), also called Wuji Zhuang (stance or standing), is one of the oldest forms of Qigong (qi cultivation) exercises used by Daoist practitioners and martial artists in China since ancient times. By simply standing still with proper body alignment, relaxation and natural breathing, the Wuji practitioner allows the internal channels of qi (vital life energy) to open up and smooth out blockages, therefore activating the body's self-maintenance and self-repair process.
Wuji Qigong has been adopted by many schools of Taijiquan practitioners as a training tool to build foundational skills such as relaxation, rooting (balance, groundedness, and centeredness), Dantian (qi reservoir) development, and qi sensitivity.
The very act of being still and breathing naturally also has the effects of relieving stress, enhancing awareness and sharpening focus.
Like many wondrously simple and elegant arts, Wuji Qigong does require some guidance to learn, and its profound effects on health and martial art skills can only be achieved through daily practice.
In this course, I will show you the physical elements of a proper Wuji stance and the mental techniques to turn the game of "endurance" into one of easy and enjoyment. I will also guide you through 4 weeks of daily practice, starting from shorter durations and gradually building up to the ideal minimum of 20 minutes in one setting.
Whether you are here for health or to study Taijiquan, I look forward to sharing this life enhancing practice with you.
Your instructor, Yan
