Deepen Your Taiji with Taiji Ball Qigong
Taiji Ball training can strengthen the torso, condition the muscles, and teach the practitioner to use the mind to lead the Qi. In Taijiquan, Taiji Ball training was once a major training tool to enhance Pushing Hands ability, but it is rarely taught in modern times. Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming teaches more advanced Taiji Ball techniques, building upon the foundation taught in Tai Chi Ball Qigong DVD 1.
In Course 3, Dr Yang teaches 16 patterns of Taiji Ball Wrap-Coiling, including vertical and horizontal.
Course 4 focuses on solo and partner applications, which improve coiling and neutralizing taiji skills, and develop “listening jing", or sensitivity. Dr. Yang offers detailed instruction as you follow along with the demonstration, including:
- Self-practice Exercises
- Flying Dragon Plays with the Ball
- Taiji Ball Along the Edge
- 2-person Matching Drills.
Regular Qigong practice accelerates the health benefits of Taiji. You'll enjoy reduced stress, a stronger immune system, and a deeper awareness of breath and body coordination. This authoritative guide can be used with any style of Taijiquan, and it is a great way for anyone to energize the body, raise the spirit, and deepen your understanding of Qigong and Taiji.
