Dear Qi friends,
Sadana Center is so excited to announce that we're opening a new Qigong & Tai Chi Beginner Group on Monday, April 5th at 7:15 PM
Thank you so much to the people that called to be placed on the waiting list!
We are in the registration process, and we only have 2 spots left!
If you would like to be part of this new group, please call us right away at (727) 458-9123
It is known that Qigong has a history that goes back over 5,000 years. Now the modern world is opening to investigate the ancient tradition of Qigong and its wonderful benefits connected with Chinese medicine.
New Beginner Class
In this beginner-level class, students will practice the Turtle Qigong or Taoist water exercises to open the joints of the body such as the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles. This kind of exercise is performed with deep breathing to release stagnation, emotions, and frustrations that we accumulate in the joints.
Qigong Breathing Exercises
Taoist Abdominal Breathing
How many emotions do we accumulate in our stomach in our daily life and when do you release them?. We live in a fast-paced world where there are no pauses and no one teaches us to release our emotions.
According to Taoist medicine, the stomach is the second brain. In this class, we will do Taoist Abdominal Breathing to help to release those emotions.
Also, the participants will have the opportunity to practice other types of breathing techniques: QiGong Fire breathing exercises to energize the heart, and Qigong Water breathing exercises to nourish the bones, tendons, and internal organs.
During classes with Shifu Orlando, students also practice sound healing to restore internal organs (liver, heart, lungs, spleen, and kidneys).
Tai Chi of the Wudang Mountain
In addition, our beginner-level class includes the ancient Tai Chi of the Wudang Mountain, which is connected with the eight forces: Heaven, Lake, Fire, Thunder, wind, water, mountain, and earth.
Master Shifu Orlando
You will be in good hands with Master Shifu Orlando Schiaffino.
