“Tai chi teaches us to float like clouds and flow like water, yet have the quiet, inner strength of a mountain.”
Celebrate the coming of Autumn in the heart of the Pocono Mountains at the Himalayan Institute Retreat Center learning Tai Chi Easy*.
At this weekend workshop, you will learn a series of qigong exercises, self-applied massage techniques, breath practices, and the Tai Chi Easy form. These techniques will enable you to practice daily at home to promote a life of balance, peace, energy, health, and vitality. This program is enriched by discussion about the history and science behind tai chi; as well as how tai chi incorporates the Taoist philosophy of simplicity and harmony with nature.
Our teaching emphasis is on quality, with a focus on coordinating motion with breath; postural alignment, fluidity and inner awareness. Fun, accessible, and specifically designed to give you tools to heal yourself; this program addresses the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual perspectives of the practices of qigong and tai chi; blending Chinese philosophy and healing with Western science.
*Tai Chi Easy, developed by Dr. Roger Jahnke, OMD, director of the Institute of Integral Qigong & Tai Chi, is a 7 step form based on the Yang style. It is suitable for all levels and can be practiced seated, standing, or coordinated with tai chi walking.
