Traditional Chinese Qigong: Tendon-Changing & Marrow-Washing Intensive
Eva Wong and Acharya Dale Asrael
August 13–15, 2014
This program will be led by Eva Wong and assisted by Dale Asreal.
This intermediate qigong program focuses on further strengthening of the musculoskeletal system—tendons, bones, joints, muscles, ligaments, and spine. We will learn how to build musculoskeletal strength and endurance for the practice of the martial arts through the Eight Basic Wudang Warrior Qigong forms; how to regain tendon strength and elasticity, revitalize bone marrow, and build endurance by enhancing bone and tendon strength through the 12 Devas and Animals forms; and how to direct internal energy toward healing and enhancing the musculoskeletal system using the Immortals’ Guide to Self-Massage and Breath Regulation and Red Phoenix Calisthenics.
This program is a prerequisite for the four other intensives (Animal Forms, Breath Regulation, Standing Qigong and Wudangshan Animals Long Form) and Traditional Chinese Qigong Level VI.
