Taiji Yangsheng Zhang (Taiji Stick Qi Gong)
In China’s traditional health culture, it has long been a practices to exercise with an instrument like a stick. A large number of historical records indicate a relationship between body building, breathing exercises and other fitness methods in ancient China.
This modern Taiji Stick regimen is based on the principles of Daoyin – breath control, body and limb movement, concentration of the mind and local massage. It embodies the concept of harmony between Yin and Yang, humans and nature. Movements are soft and slow. This is not a martial art – the stick is not wielded like a weapon.
