  • Early Morning: Qigong
  • Morning: Solo Exercises
  • Afternoon: Partner Exercises
  • Evening: Preparation for Grading

Qigong: Every day before breakfast you will have the opportunity to open your body and still your mind with an hour of training, the ideal environment to develop the right quality of attention required to train for the rest of the day.

Solo Exercises: Instructors will train to guide your attention towards specific reference points, developing your concentration and honing your observation skills to allow you to recognize different qualities and their limits in movement.

Partner Exercises: Working with a partner will allow you to train to maintain your balance and harmony in application. Instructors will train to “feed” the correct energy so that you may hold your attention and observe each mechanism in action.

Preparation for Grading: Exam preparation will help you to recognize your progress and focus on the essential aspects of each exercise, and to consolidate the training from earlier in the day. Instructors will train to be able to assess students as well as be able to communicate the grading criteria for each level.
