Wind (BaguaZhang) & Water (Tai Chi) = Fire (Qigong) or in Taoist Inner Alchemy, Kan & Li – an exercise and meditation (sitting, standing and moving exercises) process that promotes the release of mental stress while warming and strengthening the internal organs.  This is a known practice to achieve better health, longevity and cultivation of higher levels of consciousness.

I have spent nearly 38 years learning, practicing and teaching this treasure of time-proven methods. These methods can maintain a high level of fitness, maintain chronic pain issues, and prevent injuries or illnesses. These practices are not religious, but can increase your awareness of yourself on many levels. These practices are not age specific; anyone can benefit from deep breathing, stretching and a multitude of core-strengthening exercises.

I have been composing study guides for the last 10 years, as a way of documenting the vast library of knowledge available through Traditional Chinese Medicine, martial arts (Chinese & Korean) as well as other ancient methods of self-improvement and fitness.

Here is a 20 minute class I taught at Florida Hospital's Rehab Center, back in 2013. The focus was to show Parkinson's patients methods to counter some of their side efffects. However, these types of exercises can benefit anyone as the overall theme is regulated breathing (balances the emotions & blood chemistry), increased range of motion (stretches the fascial trains), self-awareness and many other wellness issues.

No need to wait until you have chronic or other health issues to learn this time-proven ancient health care program. No adult is too young, nor too old to benefit.

The 8 Extra Vessels

The 8 Extraordinary Vessels are part of the body’s meridian energy system. These vessels serve as reservoirs for the 12 Regular  meridians.  Above all else, they regulate the excess and lack of energy within the other meridians. These vessels are located in close proximity to the other meridians, often-times intersecting or running parallel with them. Some practices of these exercises fill and pressurize the 8 Vessels and is considered as “hard Qigong” and is somewhat advanced or challenging training.

Regain your stability, mobility & strength all while relieving stress & tension. Yoga & Qigong are very different words that share the same origin. Dao Yin is sometimes referred to as "Yoga in motion". The mind is focused inward on one's thoughts, breathing and posture.

8 Vessels-Opening the Vessels-8 sets8 Vessels-Opening the Vessels-8 setsLegend has it that Bodhidharma spent nine years in meditation in a cave. During years of meditation he discovered that the lack of movement of his body and limbs over a long period of time, plus the bitter cold and wind around his mountain retreat caused fatigue, body aches and pains. His disciples also suffered the same problems and often dozed off during meditation. To combat those hazards Bodhidharma devised a set of exercises based on Indian yoga exercises, Chinese exercises of the time and his own observations of the natural movements of wild animals in their environment. Each movement was transformed into connecting movements for maximum strength and development for specific areas in the human body.
This is a similar set to the original 18 Lohan movements. There are at least 8 Pal Gye sets taught within this system, forming a comprehensive system of progressively more advanced techniques towards gaining mastery of ones Qi (chi), or vital energy.

Taoist Yoga and/or Taoist Qigong https://www.mindandbodyexercises.com/blog/2018/9/taoist-yoga-and/or-taoist-qigong I teach a variety of exercise sets that offer a wide education of Taoist Yoga and/or Taoist Qigong

Dao-yin-chart.png
Sanskrit, Chinese and Korean terminology:
Qi, Chi or Gi = air, energy or breath
Gong or Kung = work or effort
Qigong = energy or breath work
Yoga = to join or unite
Tao Yin / Tao Yi = guide the Qi, stretch the body (sometimes referred to as Taoist Yoga)

 

The origins of Yoga, Qigong and other eastern mind, body and spiritual practices date back thousands of years. Tao Yin is quite possibly a root of Qigong and was practiced in Chinese Taoist monasteries for health and spiritual cultivation. From my research spanning over 35 years, I have found these practices are all greatly intertwined. What I currently find most important is that these methods have passed the test of time and proved their benefits to the human condition on many levels.

The human body is made up of bones, muscles, and organs among other components. Veins, arteries and capillaries carry blood and nutrients throughout to all of the systems and components. Additionally, 12 major energy medians carry the body’s energy, “life force” also known as “Qi”. One’s Qi is stored in the lower Dan Tien. Daily emotional imbalances accumulate tension and stress gradually affecting all of the body’s systems. Each discomfort, nuisance, irritation or grudge continues to tighten and squeeze the flow of the life force. This is where “dis-ease” claims its foothold.

Taoist Yoga, Taoist Qigong breathing exercises, Tao Yi and Tao Yin can adjust the brainwaves to the Alpha state where the mind is relaxed and the body chemistry changes and promotes natural healing. Relaxing of the deep skeletal muscles, working outward. Release of tension accumulated within the muscles, organs and nerves. Whereas conventional physical exercise can deplete energy, Qigong helps to replenish your natural energy.

Benefits of Qigong exercises:
■ Boosts the immune system
■ Reduces stress, anxiety, depression, mood swings
■ Lowers blood pressure
■ Increase the body’s natural healing process
■ Lungs increase their capacity
■ Promotes better respiration and circulation
■ Enhanced self-awareness
■ Helps to change the body’s chemistry for the better
■ Most exercises are performed standing or sitting; a few are performed on the ground but are easily adaptable.
■ Exercises can be practiced almost anywhere requiring no special apparatus, clothing, mats, music, etc. Some of the prior can be used to complement the exercises.

The 8 Pieces of Brocade

8 brocade double (low res).jpg


The 8 Pieces of Brocade is a gentle exercise set that is relaxing and energizing at the same time, with each set of movements designed to activate and cleanse the Dan Tien and particular acupuncture meridians. Training can benefit every internal and external muscle of the body (over 625), all joints and internal organs of the body. The circulatory, respiratory and nervous systems will perform better with proper instruction.

__________

Opening & Filling the 8 Vessels


One method of opening the 9 Gates & Filling of the 8 Vessels, is with the practice of Ship Pal Gye or Ship Par Gay, which is a Korean version of Chinese Shaolin Lohan Qigong, meaning “18 chi movements” or what were supposedly the original 18 drills that Bodhidharma introduced to the Shaolin monks. It is reputed to be the basis for the Shaolin Kung Fu, which in turn, greatly influenced the developments of all branches of Asian fighting arts. For the martial arts student it is essential to appreciate that Lohan Qigong is not just another Chinese exercise to be introduced to the West; it is possibly the original ‘blueprint’ for Shaolin Kung Fu, from which the more familiar Karate, Aikido, Jujitsu, Taekwondo, Tai Chi, Hsing I, Baguazhang, etc. systems evolved or drew inspiration.
There are at least 8 Pal Gye sets taught within this system, forming a comprehensive system of progressively more advanced techniques towards gaining mastery of ones Qi (chi), or vital energy.

Noble Stances

Noble Stances-2Noble Stances-2Noble stances are a combination of various stances from different styles of Chinese martial arts. Stances, in this case, meaning correct placement of the feet, knees, hips, and arm positions relative to ones center of gravity. Executing static positions and holding the particular body positions for anyway from a few seconds to several minutes reaps many benefits foremost being able to cultivate a strong and healthy core.


Noble stances are a combination of various stances from different styles of Chinese martial arts.

Executing static positions and holding the particular body positions for anyway from a few seconds to several minutes reaps many benefits foremost being able to cultivate a strong and healthy core. Some of these Qigong practices require practitioners to hold the postures for a duration of time in order to pressurize the energy that flows through 12 Energy Meridians and 8 Extraordinary Vessels. This method encourages practitioners to build proper structure and posture, allowing them to stand in the positions longer and to increase and store more energy in their body.

Music for Better Health https://www.mindandbodyexercises.com/blog/2018/9/music-for-better-health The average person breathes 12-18 breathes per minute (BPM) during regular activity of standing, sitting & walking. Fitness experts suggest that 6 BPM is optimal for the lungs to properly oxygenate the whole body while also removing toxins. The lungs are responsible for removing 70% of the body’s waste by-products through exhalation. This is best accomplished by mindful breathing patterns through exercises such as mediation, Qigong, Tai Chi and Yoga.

When soft and peaceful music is used with the prior exercises, one can effectively slow and match their breathing pattern to the 4/4 tempo. Regulated breaths taking 4 seconds to inhale, a 4 second pause, and then 4 seconds to inhale results in 5 BPM.  When respiration slows to 10 breaths per minute or slower, the parasympathetic nervous system is activated. Qigong, Tai Chi, Baguazhang, Yoga, etc. are all effective methods of exercise that activate this nervous system. These techniques have proven the test of time in being an option to remove or manage the inner critical dialogue and learn to regulate the fast paced modern existence we all experiencing.

Physician, heal thyself https://www.mindandbodyexercises.com/blog/2018/9/physician-heal-thyself Exercise and thought management can work to fix our health – physically as well as mentally. But you have to do the work. Nobody else is going to do it for you. 50, 100, 1000 repetitions of a specific exercise, executed 2 to 3 times a day, 5-7 days a week, for weeks or months….until YOU fix your issues. Yes, it can require much time, but so can trips to the doctor, therapist or hospital and often the problem still doesn’t improve much. Your time is so valuable but the also the money and effort spent on managing your health issues.

Back & Knee exercisesBack & Knee exercises

I know Qigong, Tai Chi & Baguazhang exercise methods work because I have used them to fix my own physical issues many times over 37 years.  Additionally, I have worked with and helped many people with a wide range of ailments such as:  knee, back, shoulder, neck pain – stress, headaches, stroke patients, hernia, arthritis, and various other issues.

Mind  Body Connection of Tai ChiMind Body Connection of Tai Chi

Not all injuries or illnesses can be fixed with ancient time-proven (alternative methods to some) such as Tai Chi or Qigong, but isn’t it worth looking into before one commits to surgery, other invasive methods or medications with long term side-effects? No one will take as much of an interest in your well being than you can. You can be more of YOUR health care program.

Fitness Study Guides https://www.mindandbodyexercises.com/blog/2018/8/fitness-study-guides When I first started taking fitness classes (martial arts) I realized that what I was learning was quite unique and valuable. So I started taking real good notes to help me remember and practice on my own, which led to little sketches and diagrams. Once I started teaching professionally, I became creative in producing study guides relative to the curriculum and concepts that I was offering. I handed these out for free to my students and then later decided to market and sell them along with booklets, posters and lamented charts. I feel this information is part of the next wave of fitness, that is at the cusp of becoming more mainstream within the United States. More people are pursing alternate methods of fitness as they become more educated that ultimately the individual is responsible for their own health care.

Dit Da Jow & Iron Palm linaments https://www.mindandbodyexercises.com/blog/2018/6/dit-da-jow-iron-palm-linaments

Dit Da Jow and Iron Palm liniments - alternatives to Ben Gay, Icy Hot, Tiger Balm, etc. Ever see a bruise fade away in a day's time?

I started using these herbs over 35 years ago for injuries and martial arts training. Now, after years of research I ferment my own batches. Along with learning Qigong, Tai Chi and other methods, you can take your health care back into your control.

Dit Da Jow Helps with:
- Bone bruises
- Muscle recovery
- Muscular injuries
- Joint pain
- Tissue bruises
- Soreness

Summary of Curriculum - Mind & Body Martial Arts https://www.mindandbodyexercises.com/blog/2018/4/summary-of-curriculum---mind-body-martial-arts I created a series of 16 short videos to offer a better understanding of martial arts for mind & body fitness. Each is 1-2 minutes long. Take a look and maybe learn something new about fitness. I'm 54 and still learning, training & teaching all of these methods.

Qigong, Tai Chi & Baguazhang Info Guide https://www.mindandbodyexercises.com/blog/2018/1/qigong-tai-chi-baguazhang-info-guide Happy New Year Folks!

So a few friends and family have asked me, what exactly is this Qigong & Tai Chi stuff you keep raving about?

So I composed a 16-page info guide explaining some of the theories and benefits to learning some of these time-proven exercise methods.

You can download it here:
http://www.mindandbodymartialarts.com/qigong-tai-chi-baguaz…

Even if you never pursue learning about these options for better health, you might find it a good topic to ponder other health care methods other than hanging out at the doctor's office. Be well All!!

I am looking to expand my class schedule this year with the possibility of new locations, 1/2 day, full day and weekend events.  If you are at all interested in pursuing the basic or advanced education, consider initiating a class. Locations can be churches, hospitals, community centers, businesses or wherever we can gather with some relative privacy for the duration of the class. Study materials are provided for at the various levels of instruction.  My range of travel is within the Orlando metropolitan area, but I am open for other venues if it can work for all.  Contact me with any questions at info@mindandbodymartialarts.com
