Workshop Details

Master Yang is a traditionally trained, internationally recognized taiji and qigong grandmaster who has distilled essential aspects of these arts into an easy-to-learn program suitable for people of all ages and physical abilities. His Evidence-Based Taiji and Qigong (EBT and EBQ) programs were originally designed for research interventions to yield maximum benefit in the shortest amount of time. During this weekend workshop, participants will be shown static and dynamic qigong exercises and taiji form movements designed to nurture energy, develop the mind-body connection, and enhance well-being, tranquility, and positive thinking in daily life. Master Yang’s teachings embody the ultimate purpose of taiji and qigong practice: With your whole being, develop your life. Integrated with Master Yang's teachings will be one-hour presentations by special guest instructor Robert Sheeler, MD. Dr. Sheeler, editor of the Mayo Clinic Health Letter, will discuss the pragmatic aspects of mind-body medicine.
