About the Wudangshan Qigong Workshop:

Wudangshan qigong is known for its effectiveness in training the muscular-skeletal 7 stars im 1system. Enhanced articulation of joints, elasticity of tendons and, ligaments, strength of bones, and sophisticated movement of the spine - are the results of a qigong based on the Wudang martial arts tradition. The key to Wudangshan training lies in using the 5 Animals Forms for cross-training purposes. The tiger’s strength in the bones trains the mobility of the spine of the dragon. The spinal movement of the dragon trains the tendons of the leopard. The tendons of the leopard trains the lateral movement of the spine in the snake. Training in the tiger, dragon, leopard, and snake culminates in the crane, where bones, tendons, and spine are used jointly to channel qi to the top of the head. In this program, participants will learn how to use the Wudangshan Five Animals to build a foundation for cultivating physical health that is necessary for the circulation of internal energy and the practice of the martial arts.

Requirement - Qigong 1-5
