Description

This nine-day wellness course provides a comprehensive introduction to Taiji, held at a renowned martial arts school near Mt. Qingcheng, west of Chengdu. Taiji is practiced by people all over China as a way to achieve wellness and combat chronic physical complaints. You will practice the four major forms of Qingcheng Taiji at the Qingcheng Martial Arts School: basic, circular, standing, and exercises with six movements. Through these slow but meticulous movements, participants will learn to relax their joints and release their stress. Your lessons at the Qingcheng Martial Arts School will be taught by Liu Suibin, the 36th Chief Master of the school and Ambassador of the International Chinese Health Forum. You'll also do some sightseeing in the afternoons after your lessons; highlights include the surrounding Mt. Qingcheng, an ancient irrigation system, and the Panda Research Base in Chengdu. Mt. Qingcheng itself is an important site for Taoism as it is one of the birthplaces of the religion. The mountain boasts diverse flora and fauna, stone carvings, and the sacred Tianshi Cave where, according to Taoist history, a hermit named Zhang Ling lived and founded an ancient Taoist movement.
