Wing Chun / Shaolin Mindfulness Mediation is an effective mental health program that has been part of Shaolin Temple Buddhism for over 1500 years. Si-Fu Leigh has been meditating for over 28 years since his introduction to the world of martial arts and has been training in Wing Chun for over 16 years. The teachings at the Tas Wing Chun Training Centre are that as passed down from Shaolin and via the previous ancestors of the Traditional Wing Chun System. Traditional Wing Chun was officially recognised by Shaolin Temple Venerable Abbot Shi Yongxin in 2013, where a special Return to Shaolin Ceremony was conducted at the Shaolin Temple, Dengfeng, China. See links below.
Si-Fu Leigh teachs authentic Traditional Wing Chun / Shaolin Mediation, Iso-Chi and Chi Gung.
Iso – Chi & Chi Gung
so-Chi is an effective health and fitness program that combines the use of internal energy (chi) and isometric exercises. Iso-Chi is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. The classes start with gentle warm-up meridian stretching exercises, then the Iso-Chi exercises, and finish with meditation.
It is said that, “chi is the son of blood and blood is the mother of Chi. When Chi moves the blood moves and therefore heals.” Improving your circulation is going to help your blood move oxygen and nutrients throughout your body and more efficiently remove waste products from metabolism. This can go a long way to improving your health.
Since ancient times, the Chinese have recognized that our bodies are merely a part of the world as a whole and that makes us part of nature. Man is living under nature’s influence, whether you know it or not. Each human body is a miniature replica of the universe itself, and so is subject to the same laws and rules as nature. There is a principle of constant flow or flux in nature, and it is in accordance with this fundamental principle that our world is constantly changing. In Chinese philosophy this principle is known as the Yin and Yang theory. Our bodies are one with the universe and flow in harmony or discord with the forces of nature. All things are born from the Chi of Yin and Yang.
Moving Chi through meditation is more dependent on the mind, the breath and the polarity of the Meridian points themselves to promote the flow of Chi throughout the body. Chi Meditation is one of the oldest forms of meditation developed in ancient China.
The Iso Chi Program is unique and can only be found in the Traditional Wing Chun System. The Iso Chi Program is a combination of Shaolin Chi Kung/Qi Gong/Chi Gung/Qi Kung combined with Grandmaster Dr William Cheung’s special isometric exercises. The best of both worlds where East meets West.
Our classes are conducted on the first Saturday of every month at Kingston Headquarters, 10:00am to 11:00am. Classes are also available on request in Hobart and other locations. Please contact Si-Fu Leigh on 0429107108 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
