Primordial Qigong

• Description

• The Exercises

Primordial Qigong performed by Grandmaster Feng Zhiqiang. 

Meditation and Qigong are the foundation of Tai Chi practice, whether one is interested in health and vitality, self-defense, or mind/body integration. Grandmaster Feng learned Taoist Qigong and meditation from 

Grandmaster Hu Yaozhen, the "Father of Modern Qigong," and combined that art with Chen Style Tai Chi to create "Chenshi Xinyi Hunyuan Taijiquan" — Hunyuan Tai Chi for short. 

Hunyuan Primordial Qigong


• Hunyuan, pronounced hun-yu'en, meaning "primordial" 

• Qigong, pronounced chi-gung, "vital energy cultivation" 

• For beginners, the best introduction to the energy body  

• For advanced students, the best way to develop higher-level skills

• Our most popular class 

Qigong is the ancient art of cultivating internal energy for health and vitality, relaxation and peace of mind, and, when applied to Tai Chi, self-defense skills. Qigong is very popular in China, where millions of people practice various types of Qigong daily. Although ancient, Qigong is a living art, and grows and evolves all the time. During our Sunday morning sessions, we will practice the Hunyuan Qigong developed by Grandmaster Feng Zhiqiang, which focuses on replenishing the body with vital energy, opening and expanding the energy channels, relaxing and healing any injuries or chronic conditions, and building a reserve of energy to protect the body against illness and daily stress. The exercises are gentle, but powerful, and leave you feeling refreshed, renewed, and peaceful. The class also includes a short session of Wuji Zhan Zhuang 'Standing Post' meditation.
