Our primary focus at Tian Yo is on the fundamental principals of good Taiji and Qigong practice. Ongoing attention to these fundamentals is maintained regardless of the particular forms being taught. Below are listed the major Qigong forms utilized in Tian Yo classes.
The types of Qigong classes usually taught at Tian Yo come from the "general health and well-being" category of Qigong forms.
Qigong forms can roughly be divided up into four major categories
1. General health and well-being
Medical Qigong forms usually come into being by means of medical practitioners focusing Qigong principles on fairly specific health challenges that have become chronic.
Martial forms usually come into being when masters of the martial arts apply Qigong principles to martial applications or to support martial training.
Some types of Qigong practices have been developed over time by leaders of various spiritual disciplines that are finely focused on areas of spiritual development.
The focus of general health and well-being forms is to promote over-all wellness - a preventative and broad-based approach to health.
Obviously, the four categories overlap in many areas and the categories are not meant to be mutually exclusive.
Below are listed the current forms of Qigong taught at Tian Yo along with learning and practice aids offered:
