Tai Chi Gong and the Life in Motion program give you pain-free quality of life, and the ability to move gracefully and effortlessly, and participate in various activities without the dreaded "day-after pain”. Gadi has designed a program made out of energy patterns and Circular Training, a scientific Qi Gong system that can operate as a preventative approach for Health and Longevity.
This program is designed in a genetically-programmed sequence of lubricating each joint, one after another, starting with the ankles, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows and wrists, and of course the spine. It recharges the body with energy; cleanses the energetic system, until the entire body becomes fully flushed with nutrition.
The gentle movements are easily learned, and once they release the body of stress and tension, the process helps prevent daily aches and pains.
The simple breathing exercises manage stress at a biochemical level while increasing energy, core strength and improving health.
Even if you practice ONLY twice a week for 45 minutes you will still receive most of the benefits of the exercise. While most people channel STRESS throughout the day, YOU can refresh with an energetic workout of pain-free, gentle mobility, thus losing weight and accumulating Qi, your life force, and improving your lifestyle and wellbeing!
