Nei Kung Improvement. For Nei Kung practitioners who have been through the Introductory Workshop, this 10-week class will help you to better understand the 10 postures of Grandmaster Chu's system. Classes will consist of discussion, demonstration and correction of each posture, one at a time, over 10 weeks. Instructor: Master Harris.
Eternal Spring Chi Kung Improvement is another class that has not been taught in awhile. In class, we practice; in workshop we go into more details; in special classes; we go even further. If you are an Eternal Spring practitioner, or would like to be, consider taking this class. We will investigate all 24 postures, taking a close look at the 4 key principles: relaxation, alignment, mind-body, and deep breathing. We will spend time discussing how to train Eternal Spring, improve your chi, and use Eternal Spring to improve your tai chi and your life. 10 weeks.
Instructor: Jeremy Hubbell.
