The Pearl of our School - HUA SHAN PAI TAOIST CHI GUNG
For thousands of years, Taoists in China practiced and developed various techniques of breathing to improve and heal sicknesses of various systems and vital organs in the human body. They dwelled in mountains and forests to observe, listen and meditate, gathering greater knowledge and deeper understanding of the universe. In search of immortality they moved from observation of nature to experimentation and practice. To accomplish this goal, a healthy body is essential.
We depend on air to live. The basic Taoist theory focuses on the importance of breathing and circulating the air within the human body. Mastering various breathing techniques gives us strength and more blood in the body. With plenty of air circulating within our body, our energy and vitality are enhanced. The right combination of air, blood and body fluid within our body will prevent sickness and is conductive to good health and longevity.
Consistent practice of the exercises will eliminate fat and strengthen the stomach and abdomen. Air is concentrated in the abdomen and directed to circulate within the body to nourish the five major organs; heart, lungs, liver, kidney and spleen. It will also strengthen the bone and muscles of the arms and legs and improve the color and tone of the skin.
The systematic breathing exercise plan is developed in three (3) Levels. Each level consists of 36 movements. Exercising the First Level movements will help prevent sickness and prolong a healthy life by detoxifying the organs and systems. The Second Level movements and exercises will help to return one's youthfulness from old age as it is based in hormonal manipulation. The Third Level is aimed at harmonizing the mind and body to realize man's potential as a spiritual being.
