What You’ll Learn During “Yi Quan Qigong” with Ken Cohen

Ken Cohen is a Qigong and Tai Chi grandmaster, and winner of a Lifetime Achievement Award in Energy Medicine who has practiced Chinese healing, plus contemplative and martial arts, since 1968…

He is one of the most significant ambassadors of the Taoist perspective in our generation, known for his friendly and engaging teaching style which makes ancient healing arts easy to understand and a joy to practice.

Join Ken for this hour-long immersion in exploring and experiencing the stillpoint-tapping power of a Yi Quan Qigong standing meditation.

Yi Quan (pronounced YEE-CHUEN) consists of brief, easy-to-learn postures, exercises, and meditations that improve skills used in Tai Chi, Qigong, sports and everyday life.

Like Tai Chi, Yi Quan is both a healing art and a vocabulary of martial arts skills. Yet, unlike Tai Chi, it does not require learning a long and complex choreography. Rather, the founder of Yi Quan, Wang Xiangzhai, took a radical approach to healing, body energy management, and athletic training by asking a simple question:

What is the quickest and most direct way to help people realize their innate potential, without imposing a “system” or a new form of conditioning that might limit awareness and expression?

How Yi Quan Gigong Is Unique

Through strategic and powerful standing and walking meditations, animal movements based on the bear and the turtle, and other simple flowing exercises, you release dysfunctional habits, preserve the health of your joints, improve balance and coordination, deepen your breath, and mobilize hidden resources of strength.

However, body training is only half the answer. Yi Quan includes sophisticated methods of healing imagery to train mental focus, relaxation, inner peace, and connection with nature.

Ken will introduce this dynamic system to you with a blend of story, Qigong insights, and standing meditation exercises to refine your posture, align your breathing patterns, and replenish your energy reserves.
