YMCA instructors visits china

Two woman instructors visit china to learn the art of qigong and tai chi. They are qualified and respected instructors that go to china for a trip of thier lives. They go site seeing aswell as traveling to remote places, all in the name of learning qigong.

Tai chi is a ancient martial art, that teaches you meditation while moving, and it encourages inner strength and well being. You learn to to control your balance and have improve endurance.

Qigong is the ancient art of slow movement and meditation. You will get sense of control and inner power that radiates through out your body. Also It'll bring you and your spirit closer together, which creates a natural harmony.

Jane Kiester and Carla Bottalla are instructors at the YMCA , in which they teach yoga, tai chi, and qigong. Also, they are residents of Marco island. I'm already liking these ladies and to find out that they go to china in search for qi gong masters is encouraging for the rest of us.

They do this every year as a annual trip that's usually organized by 2 gentlemen, Yinong Chong and Shawn Cartwright, and they are located in Washington D.C. This is also a good way to travel to any remote place, and it will save you allot of hassles.

Bottalla states that along the way she visits ancient temples, Beijing, and shrines. She has such a wonderful time that she says she is going every year from now on. China has many wonderful places to travel and their culture is rich and vibrant.

Keister and Bottalla main goal is to find the tai chi and qi gong masters, which they do, and their experience was profound. They went to the Xi'an and Wudang mountains in search of these masters. They ended up learning allot and its something that they will never forget. They mention the the practice was elegant and beautiful.

From the looks of it these ladies had a great time and its one that I will soon embark for myself. Because its better to learn qigong from its source and that's in china, were its been used for over 5000 years. Learning from a qigong master is a good way to achiveing the highest level of qigong.

Like in karate qi gong for longevity has levels and level 4 would be equivalent of a black belt in karate. Furthermore, don't let this discourage you because the good news is you don't haft to go to china to learn qigong. Hence, an online instructional course is good enough for most people.
