Tai Chi Ball Qigong

for Everyone!


Online Workshop with Allison Deputy via Zoom



 Saturday, August 22nd, 2020


2:00-3:30 PM   Fee $28



A FUN and INVIGORATING workout using solid wooden balls (one pictured above is made of solid poplar and weighs about 4 pounds. Beginner balls start at 2-3 pounds). Tai Chi wooden balls were used in ancient times to increase strength and flexibility for weapons training. Now a resurrected practice for us in the modern world, MoonWillow is offering Tai Chi Ball Qigong to enhance anyone's physical health and well-being. This workshop will cover circling, rocking, walking, silk reeling, and rotating movements with breathing techniques. Strengthen your joints and spine, and get a great upper body workout to go with the lower! Join us for this beautiful, meditative practice, like holding a planet in your hands! Don't have a ball? Contact MoonWillow for more information to order one of your own. If you prefer something lighter and less pricey, a plastic ball from any big box store will do nicely, too!


Note: MoonWillow Enhanced Members get 20% off - only $22.40! Must pay direct via PayPal, Venmo, Zelle, or check to MoonWillow, P.O. Box 1943, Crystal Lake, IL 60039-1943.

Reeling


with Jarett Sanchez


DATE & TIME TBA


Silk Reeling (Chan Si Jin) is the most universal body mechanic in all of Tai Chi.  Silk Reeling exercises involve simple, continuous, whole body movements that emphasize the spiraling nature of this skill. The continuous flow of these exercises, common to all Tai Chi styles, allows you to focus on Dan Tien rotation, rooting, and relaxation of the upper body. Join instructor Jarett Sanchez in this workshop that will add new dimensions to your regular form practice. You will also learn how this energy can be applied in everyday life.
All levels welcome! Be prepared to expand your Tai Chi horizons!


Fee: $40/session ($32 Enhanced Members)


Call or Register Online to Reserve Your Spot Today! Space is Limited!

Push Hands:

An Exploration


Date TBA - 2:00-4:00 PM  $40*


Pushing Hands (Tui Shou) improves health and martial prowess through two-person training techniques that teach leverage, reflex, sensitivity, timing, coordination and positioning. Pushing hands teaches the body to yield to force and redirect it, rather than resist it. Training with a partner allows a student to develop ting jing (listening power), the sensitivity to feel the direction and strength of a partner's intention. Join Allison Deputy in this introductory workshop and experience the fundamental techniques of this ancient practice – all levels welcome! Wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring bottled water.
