About Tai Chi Easy™
In Chinese, the phrase Tai Chi means the “balance and harmony” of natural forces within our world and ourselves. It also means “supreme ultimate,” pointing to the awesome nature of all life and our own lives within the universe. Tai Chi, both moving meditation and martial art, is a widely practiced form of the ancient Chinese self-care practices known as Qigong. Qigong means to cultivate (gong) healing life energies and resources (Qi).
Tai Chi Easy™ is a mind-body practice that combines gentle exercise and meditation to activate self-healing properties that ancient Chinese texts call the “Healer Within.” Our Tai Chi Easy™ Practice Leader training is a step-by-step program detailing how to share simple Qigong and Tai Chi in our communities, schools, faith institutions, hospitals, community centers, and social service agencies. Anyone interested in evidence based health care can learn to share Tai Chi Easy™ with others.
The Tai Chi Easy™ program consists of 10 movements -- 5 Medical Qigong practices from The Healer Within and 5 movements from Yang Tai Chi plus a warm up and a cool down, self-applied massage, breath exercises, and meditation. Once becoming familiar with the movements and exercises, the program is designed to provide continual challenge by gently "holding" postures and being conscious of weight-shifting and limb position, including doing the movements in different sequence, such as reversing the direction of the movements.
Join Jessica Kolbe and Gayl Hubatch on the American Riviera for this 3 day intensive, and improve health, enhance longevity, and promote inner peace. Whether you are using this training as a career booster or as a personal retreat, this event will be a profound opportunity to immerse yourself in healing and actualize your personal mission of community service. You will renew your body, mind and spirit just as intended by those ancient Qi masters of China who gave birth to Qi cultivation so long ago.
