For more information select Tai Chi from subjects list. Baduanjin Qigong From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Taught as it was taught to me by my Chinese Master while visiting Hanfi Health and Fitness Center, Ningbo. The Baduanjin qigong(八段錦) is one of the most common forms of Chinese qigong used as exercise. Variously translated as Eight Pieces of Brocade, Eight-Section Brocade, Eight Silken Movements or Eight Silk Weaving, the name of the form generally refers to how the eight individual movements of the form characterize and impart a silken quality (like that of a piece of brocade) to the body and its energy. The Baduanjin is primarily designated as a form of medical qigong, meant to improve health. This is in contrast to religious or martial forms of qigong. However, this categorization does not preclude the form's use by martial artists as a supplementary exercise, and this practice is frequent quite common.

I had my first lesson with Ron today and is exactly what I was looking for! His passion, humility, and desire to help others is evident. I am a Chiropractor and also do Acupuncture, so have been looking for the right person with the knowledgeable background to ensure the teachings were as deeply connected to the root and truth of this wonderful art. I look forward to this journey!

Just had my first individual lesson with Ron. I explained my recent symptoms of knee pain, stiffness and problems moving the joint. Also, swelling, tenderness and a crackling sound when moving. My instinct was to move less but Ron encouraged and guided me through a sequence of physical Tai Chi activities. The session included a combination of exercises to strengthen my muscles and increase my flexibility. After one session I am feeling less stiff. I have a plan to incorporate some regular exercise daily. Thanks Ron and I look forward to seeing you next week :)

THINKING ABOUT TAI CHI? No matter your age, gender or income level, everyone benefits from flexibility, strength and less stress. And there is no better way to improve all three than a regular Tai Chi practice. Whether you’re 18 or 81, Ron will pace you, motivate you and keep you coming back for more. Simple movements like Chinese squats and standing meditation will improve your range of motion, breath control and focus. They can be practiced anywhere and any time with cumulative effects that will last a lifetime. If more than 70 5-star reviews isn’t enough to convince you, with a money-back guarantee what have you got to lose?
