What we're about

We want to welcome you to our Qi Gong Rising weekly Workshops where we will facilitate mainly Iron Shirt Chi Kung and Eight Pieces of Brocade combined with other Ancient Taoists Practices.

Iron Shirt Chi Kung is a method of Kung Fu that has been adapted by Mantak Chia at Universal Tao System. It was taught as a protective training, one that provided internal power through the practice of external techniques. In ancient times, the Iron Shirt practitioner was protected against of blows to his vital organs and glands, the primary places where life-force energy, or chi, is produced. There were many other benefits as well, internal power improved general health and is thought to have maintained youthfulness. The development of internal power also helped to perfect mental faculties, enabling the practitioner to have knowledge of many things.

“Iron Shirt once the Martial Art. Now, the Practice that Strengthens the Internal Organs, Roots Oneself Solidly, and Unifies Physical, Mental and Spiritual Health” Mantak Chia

Eight Pieces of Brocade as well known as, Eight Treasures are a set of dynamic exercises for health preservation composed of eight parts. This soft Chi Kung has had many variations throughout ancient time by different Taoists Practitioners and Chinese Dynasties. At a time, these practices were taught and practiced by the devotees at theShaolin Temple in hard style martial arts.

Longevity and fitness instructors, and some doctors, throughout China prescribed specific exercises to help prevent or heal injuries, improve health, or cure various illnesses, along with other curative methods of traditional Chinese medicine.

“Aligning the body by Pressing up Heaven, breathing in and out like an Archer, opening up by Separating Heaven and Earth, stretching the neck like a Wise Owl, walking like a Big Bear, spitting out the old with Angry Gaze, taking in the new like a Monkey and activating the brain with Brain Bounce” Elena Álvarez
