Exploring Shibashi Qigong Set 1, while Seated

 

Not available via Flexible Learning

This module explores the necessity to adapt the Shibashi Qigong Set 1 movements to enable attendees, who need to sit for part or all of the session, to receive the maximum benefit of the movements.

This is NOT  a 'Seated Set' for people who choose to sit to relax. It is aimed at people who wish to take responsibility for their own health and integrate the learning onto their daily life.

The correct seated posture is explored along with the constraints and limitations of performing the Shibashi Set 1 while seated. The standing versions of the movements are revisited and the benefits explored. Each movement is then practiced while seated to understand the benefits that are not possible but most importantly, the benefits which are very possible.

This training module also covers the practical aspects such as the integration of this information into sessions.

We offer, post module, on-line or face to face support sessions, once you have started to deliver the movements.

The support includes course notes, detailed videos of the individual movements, a video of the whole set and a dedicated Facebook group.

8 Pieces of Brocade

8 Pieces of the Brocade, also known as Ba Duan Jin, was created around 1140 AD, during the Song dynasty, by the army general Marshal Yue Fei to keep his soldiers strong and in good shape for harsh, long battles.

Ba Duan Jin has a history of over 800 years and would have been originally passed down by word of mouth, resulting in the variations seen movements today.

 

During this module we will explore the structure, essence and principles behind the movements and explore some of the variations. 

This set is physically demanding and contains complex techniques. The information delivered, practically and theoretically, within this module will complement and enhance what you have already learned in previous Qigong instructor courses and modules, developing your understanding to a deeper level.

To help you to achieve this certification, we offer individual on-line or face to face support sessions between course days, detailed videos of the individual movements, a video of the whole set and a dedicated Facebook group.

We also offer, post module, on-line or face to face support sessions, once you have started to deliver the movements.

Shibashi Qigong Set 2

 

The movements of Shibashi Qigong Set 2 are very different to Set 1. There are different stances which are more complex and challenging.  These Set 2 movements require knowledge of Tai Chi Qigong techniques to enable safe practice while helping to develop the body and legs. 

This 4 day module explores these interesting and enjoyable movements and ways that some of the more complex movements can be adapted to allow more people to enjoy this set.

To help you to achieve this certification, we offer individual on-line or face to face support sessions between course days, detailed videos of the individual movements, a video of the whole set and a dedicated Facebook group.

Lee-Form Qigong Set 

 

Anyone who has experienced the flow of a Tai Chi Form will know how beautiful it is to watch as well as to perform. However Tai Chi Forms are complex and require years of dedicated practice.

We, at the Shibashi Training Academy, have taken the beautiful flowing movements of the Lee Family Tai Chi Form and combined them with the principles of Qigong to create the Lee-Form Qigong Set.

This 4 day module explores these interesting and enjoyable movements and ways that some of the more complex movements can be adapted to allow more people to enjoy this set.

To help you to achieve this certification, we offer individual on-line or face to face support sessions between course days, detailed videos of the individual movements, a video of the whole set and a dedicated Facebook group.
