CALENDAR OF EVENTS QI DAO PRACTITIONER CERTIFICATION PROGRAM Knowing how challenging it can be to try learning Qigong from books and DVDs, we created a program dedicated to helping you learn how to use your body and energy more efficiently by mastering Harmonious Culture of Movement of the top Qigong masters. During the three month long basic program starting in October, you will also discover for yourself how to enhance your physical and mental flexibility, how to send the waves of Qi through different parts of your body, as well as to release various chronic tensions that may be causing some energy blockages in the body. Not only will you find a greater sense of physical health and wellness, but also enjoy inner peace and explore several profound meditation practices based on the Tibetan Dream Yoga. The culmination of this program - the initiation into the practice of Empowerment given during the final weekend workshop - will also serve as the corner stone for a number of more advanced practices. And the best thing about this program is that you will not have to move to Portland, Oregon, because the weekend workshops at the end of the basic, intermediate and advanced programs are the only events you would need to attend in person. Just like the hundreds of people from all over the world have done by now, you will be able to study at Academy of Qi Dao by using the state-of-the-art methodology of Qigong Coaching and modern communication technology, which allows us to see each other in real time and explore the aspects of our practices associated with body awareness, alignments, movements, etc. If you are not a spring chicken, have any health challenges, or simply do not wish to spend years memorizing Chinese Qigong forms, you will especially love this opportunity to master Energy Arts through Qigong Coaching. By joining our upcoming program, you will be able to enjoy one of the best long-distance learning opportunities in the field of Qigong and receive the following benefits: • Improve your flexibility and range of motion; • Learn to send waves of Qi through your body; • Become more Centered, Grounded and Rooted; • Manage and prevent chronic stress and tension; • Develop the Harmonious Culture of Movement; • Enhance your balance through Kinesthetic awareness; • Embark on the path of self-realization and spiritual awakening. By participating in this Qi Dao program, you will be able to learn the quintessential principles of Energy Awareness, develop a new, more efficient culture of movement and discover ways to be in the flow, which can empower and improve every aspect of your life. You will also learn the most effective meditation practices, methods of self-healing and ways to improve your mental and physical flexibility and balance. Qi Dao practitioners are known for being really energetic, centered and spiritually awake as a result of doing the practices specifically dedicated to developing such qualities. If you want to gain these skills and abilities, you owe yourself an opportunity to become a Certified Qi Dao Practitioner.

This inevitably makes them less stable than they could be if they followed the principle of Stabilization. This principle is defined as turning the Centerline in the direction of the kneecap and toes of the weight-bearing leg. Try squatting or lunging while shifting most of your weight on one leg or the other and notice the amount of effort required to support your body with and without aligning your Centerline with the weight-bearing leg. Notice the amount of strength the weight-bearing leg has with and without Stabilization. As you deepen your stance, this difference will become more obvious.
