Forms are choreographed and repetitive routines that are an essential aspect of Qi Gong practice.
Your nervous system learns through precise repetition and refinement – which is why these practices have been passed down for thousands of years.
Qi Gong Forms you will learn in Level Two
The Ba Duan Jin (8 Pieces of Brocade) is the most popular Qi Gong form in the world. This VERY thorough series of exercises will stretch and tone every muscle, nerve, and joint in your body. It was developed almost 1,000 years ago to keep an entire army fit, flexible, and healthy. This form is so famous because it is easy to remember, has different levels of precision and only takes 15 – 20 minutes to practice.
In Level Two of the Soma Dao Qi Gong Program, you will also learn the Tian Di He Yi Fa – Balancing Heaven and Earth. This form focuses on reintegrating your three Dan Tian (energy Centers) with the Sky and the Land around you.
The Deep Healing Flow – a Yoga-like form of mat work or floor work that involves deep stretching and awareness exercises that help release stress, tension, and trauma from your muscles and fascia. This form will keep you grounded and playful while you take this deep-dive into your embodied experience.
To Balance all of the forms and choreography you will be learning, you will also get to play in the ocean of Free Form Tai Chi.
