• BaMen Tai Chi/Qigong - Traditional Temple Training

    W Lansing Gleason Park

    This is traditional temple training. It is an honor to be able to share this very ancient style of tai chi that pre-dates most tai chi being taught in the US. The BaMen "I" class is for those new to this style. BaMen (8 Gates) is passed on through me by Grand Master Jeffery B. Cook who is a lineage holder. It is 2,300 years old and comes from the Wu Dan Temple of central China. This class is appropriate for anyone, but if you are athletically inclined and more accustomed to Western styles of exercise, this will probably be the class for you. It utilizes three primary exercises: 1) Dao Mo's 18 Muscle Tendon Changing Classic (Yi Jin Ching) - a qigong routine that dates to the 5th century Shaolin Temple which uses bi-lateral, isometric training, visualizations, and balance combined with intense breathing techniques for a full mindbody work out. 2) Five Beasts at Play (Wu Xian) - a complex qigong routine that looks more like tai chi than qigong from 206 BC that combines flowing movements, agile steps, balance and intense breathwork to balance the five elements within the body. 3) BaMen - 2,300 year old tai chi routine that is designed to activate the flow of chi in the mindbody using complex, flowing movements. ​ This class requires commitment and at home practice. There is no video support for this traditional temple training. It is taught as it has been for thousands of years requiring the student to fully engage the mind to remember the forms. This is the most complex class I teach. It is my personal favorite and I find it more beneficial to my own health and well being than any of the other things I teach. I am certified to teach this class by martial arts Grand Master Jeff Cook. The day time class meets outdoors in Gleason Park on Tuesdays and Thursdays; there are also evening sessions that meet indoors in Melbourne (see schedule). Your $5-10 donation per class makes it possible for me to continue teaching these ancient bio-technologies that fortify modern day health. Looking forward to practicing with you soon.

  • QiGong in the Park

    W Lansing Gleason Park

    Heal mind, body and spirit with donation based Qigong outside in Gleason Park. Qigong is a centuries old mindbody practice that is the predecessor of tai chi and quite a bit easier to learn. Gentle enough for those with chronic health issues but powerful enough to engage even seasoned athletes. Qi = breath or life force energy. Gong = work or skill acquired through practice. So Qigong strengthens, balances and attunes us to our own life force energy. For six weeks we will focus on one qigong routine and then change to another routine so we can experience the full range of these powerful forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Qigong uses breathwork, specific flowing movements, visualization and self-massage for a full mindbody workout. We meet outside on the north side of the lake at Gleason Park by the gazebo and picnic tables. 1221 Yacht Club Blvd, Indian Harbor Beach, FL. No mat required, dress weather appropriate. Donations of $5-10 are appreciated. For more information or videos of some of the qigong we do, please visit: www.BeachsideQigong.com.

  • Tai Chi for Arthritis 1

    W Lansing Gleason Park

    Donation based Tai Chi for Arthritis 1 takes place outside in the lovely Gleason Park. Tai Chi for Arthritis 1 is a good beginner level tai chi class this is endorsed by the Arthritis Foundation and numerous other medical experts as a safe and effective form of exercise, even for the health challenged. This medically researched Sun style tai chi form activates our internal chi or energy system to heal us from within on many levels. This tai chi routine has been shown in numerous studies to improve mindbody awareness and reduce falls better than other forms of exercise including modern physical therapy techniques. It is also safe for damaged and frail joints, unlike some other forms of tai chi. It's also a simplified routine making it relatively quick and easy to learn for those brand new to tai chi. Tai chi helps brain functions and memory by requiring us to remember a sequence of steps, just like a dance routine would. This class comes with free, online video tutorials to make learning it as easy as possible. People from around the globe have contacted me saying they used these videos to learn the entire routine on their own. Better to come to class too :) We meet outdoors in Gleason Park on the north side of the lake by the gazebo and picnic tables. Dress weather appropriate. $5-10 donations are appreciated and make it possible for me to continue sharing these healing arts.
