Human Harmonies programs are based on low-impact movements from internal martial arts (or healing arts) such as Tai Chi, QiGong and Bagua. Our programs are designed to help individuals reach their health and fitness goals, while taking into account each person’s unique physical needs and abilities. The mind/body benefits reported from practicing these healing arts is supported by a large body of scientific evidence and clinical studies. (Visit our Resources page for more information.)
The Qi Fit program is a restoration program that focuses on QiGong movement and breath work. The goal of this program is to restore and improve stability, flexibility, mobility and overall health. The movements taught in the Qi Fit program are appropriate for adults with a wide range of physical abilities, and is a good entry point for individuals with significant health or physical concerns. Many participants report health improvements within a short period of time, and choose to further their development with the Body Awakening and Full Body programs.
The Body Awakening program is designed to provide an introduction to Tai Chi movement and principles. Tai Chi is an excellent form of exercise for low impact strengthening, flexibility, and balance. Consistent practice has been shown to promote well-being, and helps develop the body’s natural healing abilities.
Students in this program are welcome to attend unlimited Body Awakening and Qigong classes each month. Students generally participate in this program for one to three months before they are ready to move on to the Full Body Program (below).
The Full Body program is our main program. It is designed to provide students with a more in-depth and personalized understanding of internal martial arts and mindful movement practices, with a focus on Tai Chi and Bagua. Full Body Program movements are designed to develop external (muscles, bones, joints) and internal (organ health, immune system, peace of mind) strength and vitality.
Students learn how to integrate the movements into their lifestyle to gain more control over their health, well-being, and quality of life. Students in the Full Body program are welcome to attend unlimited Full Body, Body Awakening and Qi Fit classes.
