Learn the methods of how to cultivate your neigong (internal energy), the inner power through tai chi Qigong practice to achieve better health and gain self-defense skills. There are many different tai chi forms or routines in the world today. No matter what styles you are learning, this seminar/retreat will teach you the core concepts to enhance your practice. We will also introduce you to our Partnered Tai Chi Qigong method, an innovative approach to teaching. It focuses on opening energy channels, supplementing ones energy surplus or deficit with a partner, and channeling universal energy to each other for effective inner power cultivation. No need to practice with a partner, you can imagine the universe is your practice partner, but it is a lot of fun with a partner. Though the philosophy is 3,000 yrs old, presenting this technique is new.

Objectives of the course:

- Understand the basic knowledge on how to cultivate your internal energy.

- Balance your inner yin and yang subtle energies.

- Learn techniques to channel energy with universe or a partner.

- Identify the self-defense aspect of Tai Chi poses presented in course.

- Learn that martial art applications are hidden in every Tai Chi move.

- Martial arts applications are better executed with neigong, the inner power.

4. We also have an option to add an additional week to go through Wudang Mountain, Wuhan, and Kunming, China before flying to Bangkok on April 21st. We will have two flights inside of China. After the 2nd flight to Kunming, we are very close to Bangkok (only a little over 2 hours flight to Bangkok). So we can take advantage of one international long flight to cover both China and Thailand.

It is a must for tai chi people to have some tai chi pose pictures there for a souvenir. Wudang Mountain is where the legendary story of Taoist Zhang Sanfeng created tai chi practice based on observing crane and snake fighting. Non-tai chi people can explore and take pictures of the scenery. Lunch at a local Chinese restaurant.

Afternoon tour to Crown Prince Slope and Golden Summit with dinner at local Chinese restaurant.(BLD)

Event List


Tai Chi Healthways Association has been developing Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for group exercise leader/instructor and personal trainer through its national and worldwide workshop/seminar program, publication and research. Led by Master Jesse Tsao, Ph.D.,the CEUs created by Tai Chi Healthways are recognized by learners, group exercise instructors, and employers. A CEU is defined as ten contact hour of participation in a recognized continuing education program, with qualified instruction and sponsorship. CEU records are widely used to provide evidence of completion of continuing education requirements mandated by certification bodies, professional societies, or governmental licensing boards. The records also provide employers with information on training pertinent to particular occupations. Not all CEUs are created equal. The term CEU is in the public domain. Any organization may award a traditional CEU without requiring accreditation. That’s why it is important to look for Tai Chi Healthways CEUs so that an individual can assure employers, credentialing associations, licensing bodies and others that he has completed a quality program.
*Additional document fee for the CEU certificate is $20.
