Hua Shan Taoist Qigong Introductory Four-Week Series
Would you like to explore an ancient system used to promote vitality and energy while aiding in preventing illness and dis-ease? Who wouldn’t, especially in our challenging times, right? Please join Robin Rosario for a four-series to introduce you to the Hua Shan Taoist Qigong system. It is a life-changing personal journey to promote health and wellness through regular practice. This is a rare and powerful form of Qigong that incorporates dynamic and vigorous breath work. Because it is a daily practice, the depth of benefits builds upon itself to make you stronger and healthier.
Virtual and In-PersonTai Chi and Qigong Classes
I offer ongoing classes in Wu Style Tai Chi and Taoist Qigong. While you are welcome to drop in, you will benefit from attending weekly, as the classes build upon one another.
Tai Chi is a practice that creates resilience in both body and mind. The physical movements of Tai Chi and Qigong allow us to develop strength, flexibility and circulate blood and Qi (life energy). The practices teach us how to train our attention, to become an observer and let go of conditioned habits that hinder our growth. We all naturally seek to achieve a sense of wellness and balance.
Too often our daily lives create feelings of stress, anxiety, impatience and a myriad of other thoughts and feelings that aren’t necessarily conducive to bringing a sense of calm. By developing daily practices of Tai Chi and Qigong we build our awareness so that we can more easily return to and live from our center. Tai Chi and Qigong are a gateway that helps protect us from the stress of daily life. It is our own little medicine path.

The Best of Tai Chi & Qigong
Based on the theory of Yin and Yang, Tai Chi is like having your own personal medicine bag, a treasure trove from which you can use its many tools to recharge yourself and improve your overall well-being. It is gentle yet powerful. The beauty of Tai Chi is that you never stop learning.
Tai Chi is an effective way to get in touch with your physical self. Learning to move and enjoy your body can feel luxurious. Whether you want to improve your health, are recovering from an injury, or have chronic pain Tai Chi is an incredible method to regain a sense of fluid mobility.
Tai Chi is said to be one of the best practices for helping to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. A regular dose of mindful movement can do wonders to improve your mood and help you build a reservoir of stability so that you can better cope with your daily stresses.
Tai Chi is an important key in the ability to relax. Learning Tai Chi brings awareness to how you hold tension in both your mind and body. This gives you the freedom to change it. When you learn to release tension, you can experience a greater source of energy.
Tai Chi is a martial art and often called a meditation in motion. The soft movements in Tai Chi are deceptive as you learn to use your body in new ways. This creates suppleness and flexibility and builds strength and tone.
Mind & Body
Tai Chi combines subtle, gentle movements with the focus of meditation. It teaches you awareness so that you are more present in the moment. This has tremendous value far beyond the time spent doing the practice. Tai Chi is a tool for resiliency both in body and mind.
