Spring Qigong Workshop:  With Qigong Grandmaster Kenneth Cohen (Gao Han)


Learn the complete Yi Jin Jing 易筋经  “Transforming the Muscles and Tendons Qigong”

Yi Jin Jing is a famous series of easy to learn postures practiced with isometric tension and dynamic breathing.

This qigong system of ancient healing exercises is so important that it is one of the few styles officially approved in China’s modern health care system. You will learn the original method from the Fujian Province Shaolin Temple. As Grandmaster Cohen is one of the leading western authorities on Chinese qigong and it's history, he will surely teach you about the real history of these famous exercises.  If you want to learn some of it's rich history you can read about it on wikipedia.

What you will learn in this workshop:

  • How to turn flacid and weak tendons and muscles into strong, flexible and healthy tissues.
  • How to unblock fascia constrictions and knots in tissues using these techniques to drive Qi through your tendon, muscle and fascia networks. 
  • Powerful vitality and strength exercises from the 18 Lohan Monks System. 
  • Breathing meditations and healing light visualizations for tranquility and inner peace. These rare meditations are the legacy of the great 4th century Buddhist pilgrim Kumarajiva. They form part of the spiritual, mind-awakening root of qigong.
  • There will also be time for Q&A and discussion of qigong philosophy and science. 

The course is open to all levels, including beginners.

Testimonials

 

“I can honestly say that the floodgates of qi opened for the first time and it has been an experience without words.”

--M.W. student

 

“I am the student with Parkinson’s from the recent workshop. I want to tell you that I have been significantly better since the weekend. My movements are easier and quicker. I feel well, rather than ill, and have more energy!”

--R.L. nurse

 

“For five years I have been seeing blood specialists because of an extremely low WBC (white blood cell count). Yesterday I went for my six-month check up. I could hardly believe it when the doctor told me that my WBC was normal! The improvement is not just a little, but substantial. The main thing that was different was that I have been consistently doing primordial qigong. What else could explain this?  I am so grateful and happy. Thank you.” 

--S.J. psychotherapist

 

“Thanks to your qigong instruction, my post-polio syndrome is under control. For the first time in thirty years, I am able to walk free of pain. There are no words to express my gratitude.

—M.G. retired Spanish teacher

 

“Without actually being in Ken Cohen’s presence, it would be very hard to believe that an American could have such profound and detailed understanding of traditional Chinese culture. His Qigong movements express true mastery and a deep cultivation of the spirit of China. Professor Kenneth Cohen’s dissemination of Chinese culture to the Western World is an enormous work and a glorious achievement.”

– Tu Xinshi, Editor-in-Chief, Chinese American Post
