Tuesday Lions Bay TQFusion

This “Fusion” class in Lions Bay has been on-going in the community since 2016.  It is called a Fusion class because it combines a great, full body warm-up, which includes stretches and strengthening exercises, with a variety of Chinese Health Qigong forms. That is just the first 1/2 hour. The last 1/2 hour is dedicated to one form that the students will learn over 13 weeks.

In this September-December set of classes, the last 1/2 hour of the class will be dedicated to learning the Taiji Yang Sheng Zhang, also known as the Taiji Stick Health Preservation. This form embodies the concept of Taiji, which emphasizes the harmony of yin and yang, man and nature. The exercises introduce the essence of traditional stick martial art practice, coordinates body movements with stick wielding, guided breath and imagination.

“The Stick” is fun and easy to learn. The benefits of its practice are many: It helps release stress, increase focus and improve strength of bone and muscle, while massaging key acupuncture points to improve health and wellbeing. It also helps improve body flexibility and balance. It is exceptional for the brain-memory-body connection.

Every student will need to purchase a stick for the first class. Once you register you will receive information on its required dimensions and special notches that need to be added. Sticks can be purchased at any hardware store, cut to size, and then we will leave it to you to decorate it. The cost is minimal. Another option is to find the “Stick” online and purchase it direct. There are even collapsible versions. For more details feel free to contact us.
