In this two-day workshop intensive, you will be introduced to the Silk Reeling skill. Silk Reeling is a skill found in Chinese Internal Arts. It teaches the practitioner to utilize the whole body in one, whole unit and moving in a round, smooth, even manner that makes use of the body’s architecture in the most efficient way possible. Whether it’s for martial arts, energy work, or moving meditation, Silk Reeling is an amazing skill practice to help make the most out of combining all facets of mind, body, and energy.
In this workshop, we will show the basic foundations of breathing, posture, and movement that will be able to be used in all traditional Chinese Internal Arts let alone being extremely helpful when integrated into daily life. We will also practice with moving the body in a coordinated and relaxed, but not devoid, manner through the three spheres of movement all combined with correct breathing methods.
The first session will be building basics while the second class will be more focused on routines of Silk Reeling practice created by masters of Chen Style Taijiquan (Tai Chi).
