Shifu Yan Lei invites you to attend his live Zoom masterclass. He will teach the 8 Treasures Form and show you how to use this form to balance your Yin and Yang, stabilise your energy and make your stamina grow. You will feel a noticeable difference when you go onto train in physical exercise such as running or Kung Fu.
The focus will be on wellness and fitness through Longevity Qigong so that what you learn is suitable for health seekers as well as martial artists. If you’re already a personal trainer or a yoga teacher, you can use these teachings as another strand to help your clients gain total mind and body wellness.
If you already know the movements and Qigong form then these masterclasses will deepen your understanding and you will learn how to pass these valuable teachings to other students. If you’re just beginning and you don’t want to teach, you can use this program to learn and you don’t need to attend the last week where Shifu Yan Lei focuses solely on how to teach.
The Shaolin Temple is a temple of Zen therefore the classes are not theoretical. Theory doesn’t transform. You’ll be taught through body language so that you gain personal experience and muscle memory. This is not about reading a menu, it’s about tasting the food.
If you’ve ever been to China, you’ll see elderly people in the park in the early morning practicing some of these movements. And if you go to the Shaolin Temple in China, you’ll see young disciples practicing the same movements. The elderly people do the movements slower and practice more Qigong where as the young disciples will be fast and do less Qigong. It’s about adapting these time-tested movements so that they are suitable for all ages.
These iconic movements are our foundation. When our foundation is strong we begin our transformation.
