During the initial instructor course we introduce the stances, principles, body alignment, breath and energy for a 18 movements Qigong Set, based on the Shibashi Qigong Set 1. However, the main emphasis of the course was for the instructor to become familiar with the essence of each of the Qigong movements and how to adapt and deliver a safe set to people of all ages and abilities who wish to de-stress and relax.
Once an instructor feels comfortable and familiar with all of the 19 Qigong movements in this set then the next level of understanding can be introduced.
Shibashi Training Academy Qigong Module B explores the true nature of Tai Chi Qigong, how the breath and tantien lead to create movement which connects the whole body so that the breath, body and mind harmonise in true moving meditation.
This module is powerful energetically but also takes the physical aspects to a deeper level to develop control, stamina, muscle strength and flexibility while applying all of the usual Tai Chi Qigong principles such as moving softly.
The aim of the initial instructor course is to deliver a Qigong session to help people to relax and generally feel better but Module B is aimed at those who want to improve their physical body, open their energy channels, explore moving meditation to find inner peace.
In this module we explore:
*The transitions between the 18 Shibashi movements
*The strength of rooted but relaxed stances
* The yin and yang palm positions.
* The unification of breath, body and mind and how the breath leads the movements.
Instructors can repeat this training module as many times as the wish and each repetition will also count as part of their annual further training requirement.
