Iron Shirt Chi Kung (Qi Gong) 1

Iron Shirt Chi Kung( Qi Gong), once a martial art, is now a health practice that strengthens the internal organs, roots oneself solidly and unifies physical, mental and spiritual health. Join us for our 2-day workshop with Senior Instructor Olivier Barré.

Iron Shirt 1 uses powerful rooting techniques to create structural alignment and allow energy to flow. With good posture and grounding, you can avoid the effects of tension that eventually deplete your body and mind.

Iron Shirt Chi Kung also develops internal pressure – an important Taoist concept that allows the body to maintain its vitality and tone. Increasing internal pressure allows you to withstand the external pressure the world exerts on you – protecting yourself from stress and physical/mental tension. Internal pressure techniques are used to increase energy and blood flow – to regenerate, strengthen and protect the body. In this workshop, we focus specifically on the waist – known as the Chi Belt – as well as strengthening the organs and bones.Sexual organs and the kidneys store part of the Jing, the essence of the primordial force. Learn how to conserve and store it. More sexual energy will help to attract and multiply the primordial chi. Men learn how to control ejaculation and to transform the sexual energy into Chi (life force) and then transform it up to spirit force. Women learn how to control menstruation and transform the blood into chi and likewise transform it up to spirit force. Eventually, there will be less blood lost and more will be converted into chi.

Men and women have different sexual energies – and too often this leads to disharmony, preventing us from fully exploring our sexual potential. By harnessing the power of an ancient tradition of sexual wisdom you and your partner can learn to use physical and psychological techniques to experience the bliss of a whole body sexual experience with orgasm after orgasm. 

The art that has evolved over centuries of Taoist understanding can be brought to life again today to further expand the healing power for lovers. Couples will find and increase their sexual energy potential, and deepen their physical compatibility, as well as develop an ecstatic form of acupressure. Sexuality taught as a way for health and healing, spiritual growth and longevity.



Iron Shirt 2

Iron Shirt 2 moves on to tendon power and strengthening the ligaments and fasciae. The old Taoist sages observed that by strengthening our fasciae we can avoid many health concerns. The fasciae provides a holding of the body’s structures and facilitates the flow of chi/qi or energy. Unlike exercising a muscle, which degenerates with age, by working the tendons, ligaments and fasciae, you can achieve flexibility and free movement into old age. We will also learn how to use bamboo sticks to release toxins accumulated in the body – a longevity practice specific to the Tao.
