Our Dana Point Qigong classes for adults use standing postures and slow, mindful movement to develop higher levels of awareness in the mind and body. Practiced for their proven mental and physical health benefits as well as for longevity, qigong focuses your mind, strengthens your body and revitalize your energy.
Our Qigong classes are for people of all ages looking to improve the quality of their lives. We have practitioners in their 20s and others well into their late 60s.
Origins of Dana Point Qigong
Our Dana Point Qigong (aka “Dragon Family Qigong”) practice is based largely on the internal principals of the traditional Chinese Taoist internal arts. Created by Sifu Adam Williss, Dragon Family Qigong is largely based upon the soft, internal, elements hidden from within the art of Wing Chun (AKA Yong Chun Chuan).
Our non-combative classes unify the traditional internal principles of body alignment with a philosophy that embodies the inherent connection between ourselves and the environment. They encompass a vision of oneness in which each person is seen as part of a whole and directs a return to our natural and more innate sense of living.
Peace of Mind
The Dragon Institute’s classes offer peace of mind through mental and philosophical applications to modern life. Within each class, there are life-changing lessons that have the ability to revolutionize the way people look at things. Students learn to look at things in a whole new way…more balanced, simplifying issues, clarifying opportunites, prioritizing tasks, operating in the present, becoming more efficient, confident and self assured, relaxed and calm, focused and aware, and much more!
Everything students learn is in complete harmony with Traditional Chinese Medicine. Students learn powerful healing movement and preventive medicine using deep breathing, moving meditation, postural healing and energy sensitivity drills to cleanse, balance, and circulate the body’s vital energy (qi). Make no mistake, The Dragon Institute’s classes lead to improved health, vitality and a more relaxed mind and body!
