After years of hearing the question ” Why didn’t they teach this in school when we were younger”? I decided to develop a Youth Health and Wellness program that finds its foundation in Shaolin Kung Fu Training basics (non-violent, a type of “Kung Fu Yoga”), basic QiGong relaxation practice, breath and meditation centering. Contact us for an presentation, guest class instruction or on-going class sessions.
In the world of Tai Chi, there are many approaches towards instruction. One of our dreams is to have different levels of service and styles of classes to match your interest and personal development needs. Please read through our class options (frameworks) below, and then use the Class Finder to find a class near you.
Illness and injury prevention is core to Tai Chi and QiGong. The most basic aspects of the practice are an invitation to understanding what influences daily, seasonal and yearly changes. Our habits, patterns and tendencies can be observed over short, medium and long term periods of time, and will reflect a deeper way to cultivate wellness. Learning to study ourselves, and question our reactions or responses, helps us consider the small changes needed for daily health momentum.
#1 - If you are practicing (practice mantra: “I am practicing balance”) in a balanced way - that induces the beginnings of balance ongoing. How? Rhythm is essential to understanding this - and something to keep learning from. If something goes in and out, left and right, and up and down in a regulated way, it can carry its own momentum into greater and greater lengths of time without an external force. The secret is that balance practiced ongoing through rhythm produces breakthrough - or what was not possible is now possible or what was not known is now known.
Transformation Arts is a formal Internal Arts passing lineage tradition that shoulders socially responsive action in the return, creation and education of self-health care practices and oral/written instruction of lineage Tai Chi/QiGong and Yoga. Actively engaged in Health Care Reform, Transformation Arts reflects, adapts and considers time-tested and global best practice standards. The Lineage uses the commonalities of Human-Shared Qualities, practical application of time-tested training and transformed individual results and science-based research as the measure.
My greatest interest in this life is to continue to understand what connects us and what separates us, from a personal experiential perspective, from my observation of my outside world and from my inter-personal relations. I also study history, how and why it repeats itself, Cultural Traditions and Lineages of Higher Learning, all in hopes of a deeper understanding of the Human condition and our many expressions of it.
