Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi is one of the most popular styles of qigong around the world because it is effective and easy to learn. The demand for tai chi qigong instructors is increasing as baby boomers start to age and as more people become aware of the benefits of qigong.
In this course, students will learn:
all 3 major types of qigong, namely the moving qigong, standing qigong and sitting qigong. The first set of Shibashi, the Wuji & Taiji Stances and the basic Internal Alchemy technique will be taught respectively for each type. Time will be devoted to Individual form correction;
the theory of qi and the health benefits of qigong from both Eastern and Western perspectives;
the details surrounding and reasoning behind each qigong movement;
abdominal and reverse breathing techniques;
about the physiological changes when the one enters qigong mode (as seen on biofeedback machines);
about the feelings to be expected after practicing qigong and the meaning behind each of these feelings and
about the common mistakes students make when practicing Shibashi.
By the end of the course, students will know how to:
check if others are relaxed by assessing their physical and mental state;
maximize the benefits of Shibashi by adding extra elements to certain movements;
incorporate some simple yet powerful stances into Shibashi;
increase their sensitivity to qi;
modify movements when teaching seniors and those with special needs;
create a qi field to magnify the benefits of group practice and
detect and defend themselves from sick qi.
Even though the theme of this instructor training course focuses on Shibashi, the knowledge imparted and skills developed during this course could be applied to many different styles of qigong. Those that do not intend to teach but would like to make qigong a part of their lives will also find this course very helpful.
A certificate will be issued to those who successfully complete this course. Graduates have the option of listing their names and contact information on the instructor page alongside other qualified tai chi qigong instructors worldwide.
