Promoting good health is easy when you use Tai Chi Easy™
for managing stress, and cultivating and nourishing your vital energy.
Tai Chi Easy™ is a carefully developed method and approach to Tai Chi and Qi (Chi) Cultivation that makes it easy, beneficial and fun from the very beginning.The student does not have to devote years to learning the traditional 108 movement form or even the shortened (24, 36, 42 movement) form to enjoy the calming emotional and health benefits of Tai Chi (Taiji).
Tai Chi Easy™ is not "just" an exercise program that uses gentle activities to increase joint flexibility, circulation, range of motion and to maintain muscle strength. As a practice that Harvard calls "medication in motion," the slow movements and mindset of Tai Chi can be used to manage stress levels by creating a a heightened sense of self awareness, mindfulness, empowerment and choice. The mind-body practices of Tai Chi Easy™ soothe and rewire the nervous system and increase cognitive and brain plasticity. Learn more about the actual practice and components of Tai Chi Easy™.
Research is confirming that Tai Chi and Qigong, Chinese wellness practices for Mind-Body health, prevent and heal disease and relieve pain.

Summer Solstice Tai Chi Qigong Hike

THE HIKE ON JUNE 20, 2017 HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED FOR JUNE 27, 2017 AT 7pm. Same location.

Please join us Tuesday June 20th at 7pm at Neff's Canyon Trailhead for Chi Hiking & walking meditation. Click on Tai Chi Qigong on this website for more details:
Summer is the season of longer days of sunlight and abundant of life-force energy (Qi). In Chinese Medicine, Summer is the most YANG or ACTIVE aspect of Nature - where plant life grows, flourishes and bears fruit. 

Take advantage of Nature's Summer Qi Power to support you! 

In the Northern Hemisphere, we experience Summer Solstice -- the longest day of light, on June 21st. 

You may like to do a Qigong Solstice Day Ritual 

  1. Stand barefoot on the earth or your patio and out stretch your arms to the sky. 
  2. Now imagine, or feel if you can, pulling in the sunlight — super Yang Qi -- while tracing your hands down over your head, your heart and your entire body down to legs to your feet — infusing your organs and energy centers with fresh Qi of nature. 
  3. Fill, bask and bath yourself in Light Qi! Take in and release huge deep breaths. 
  4. Repeat this 2 or more times. 
  5. Now the most important part — notice with great focus — what are you feeling?
  6. Linger, celebrate!
Shen
Now, Looking at your Circle of Life
What area of your life would benefit from more Light and Energy? 
What would support you to THRIVE -- rather than just survive? 
What is one action step you're willing to commit to that would expand your Joy, Life Fulfillment or Well-Being? 
Best to schedule your ONE action step --Right NOW!

Choose Foods to Clear the Heat

Summer is the perfect time for cooling Yin foods. Chinese Medicine classifies food according to energetic qualities of temperature, taste, and the ability to strengthen the body. Food with cool/cold properties can clear heat, reduce toxins, and generate body fluids. Fish and seafood are cooling, while red meat and chicken are warming.
Select fresh fruits and vegetables from your local farmers market or your backyard garden, such as watermelon, peaches, cantaloupes, radishes, lettuce, kale, celery, tomatoes and spinach. Avoid spicy foods, alcohol, or caffeine as they are heating to the system. Drink plenty of cooling fluids, especially hydrating drinks such as coconut water or water with lemon or cucumber slices added. Watermelon is also very hydrating and cooling.
