本课程教授太极拳道的入门功法:无极桩功。无极桩功既是入门功法,又是太极修为中最重要的功法。传统的太极拳教学不是从拳架和套路开始的。古时太极大师们教门内弟子,从无极桩功开始。后来皇族权贵们以习练太极拳为时尚,但又没有耐心练习无极桩功,大师们无奈才从开始就教拳架和套路,这就是太极操的起源。无极桩功以培养太极内功为目的。而有无内功,是真正传统太极拳和太极操之间的根本区别。在勤练无极桩的过程中,学生们学会达到身体真正松静自然的状态,同时学会用“意”达到大脑专注、灵敏和警醒的状态。身心松静了,就会开始自我调整,所以持之以恒常练无极桩的学生都会体会到身体健康和心情的显著改善。修炼无极桩如同在身体里铺一条畅通的路,为进一步学习太极内功并用于养生或者武术技击打下了好的基础。李光昭老师从2006年之后一直致力于把过去太极门里不外传的理法,功法和心法传授给有缘人, 以造福大众。对于无极桩功而言,这就是如何正确地用“意”去摆正全身18个部位: 头顶,足,颈,下颌,齿,肩,肘,腕,手指,胸,背,腹,腰,胯,臀,膝,踝,裆。本课程使用李老师独特的“看,听,摸,悟”教学法,让每个学生都有机会体会老师的姿势和用劲。学生们在习练无极桩功的过程中会加深对阴阳之理的体会和认识,这可以帮助他(她)们学习传统中医。学生在本课程中不仅学到无极桩这个可以随时随地锻炼身心的功法,还学到如何使用太极拳道的心法去处理人生中的三大关系:人与自然的关系;人与人的关系;人与自己的关系。无极桩功(Level 1)通过练形求意,为下一阶段的浑圆桩功(Level 2)以意导气打下坚实的基础。

Bilingual Class (English and Chinese): Taichi Neigong Standing Meditation Level 2 (Hun Yuan Zhuang) 太极内功浑圆桩

Please note that this bilingual class will be offered in both Chinese and English.

In this two-day class, students learn Hun Yuan Zhuang, the second level in Taichi Standing Meditation. Traditional Taichi training starts from Standing Meditation instead of Taichi forms/postures, to cultivate Neigong, or Inner Power. This is how Taichi masters taught Taichi within their own families. In Level 1 Wuji Standing Meditation, students learn the true meaning of “relaxation” for the body and “awareness and concentration” for the mind.

Level 2 Hun Yuan Standing Meditation builds on top of the relaxation technique of Level 1. In Level 2 Huan Yuan Standing Meditation, the instructors will further teach the students how to integrate the relaxed 18 body parts to form a coherent and integral body, and to cultivate a healthy and natural relationship between the body and the mind. Students are taught how to use posture and “Yi” (roughly means the mind) to cultivate “Qi” (or “Chi”) to flow throughout the body. Every student will get chance to feel the instructors when the techniques are demonstrated. Students gain deeper understanding of the forces of Yin and Yang that will benefit their TCM study. Students acquire valuable skills to heal themselves through mind and body exercises. Hun Yuan Standing Meditation is also a key training technique to acquire Martial Arts skills. Students that did not take the Level 1 course can take the Level 2 course, because the Level 1 contents will be reviewed, and they can take a full Level 1 course later on.
