INTERNAL ARTS TRAINING IN CURAÇAO
With Luigi Kwas

Introduction: Why do we need to practice?

When we talk about the health we do not only talk about nutrition. We also talk about the muscles and organs, the joints, tendons, ligaments, blood & oxygen flow through the vanes, energy flow through the meridians, the nervous system, spinal column, brain, mind or spirit.
There are 5 systems that I practiced intensively for years that I consider the top 5 best exercise systems. These are:
1. Meditation
2. Taijiwuxigong Spontaneous Movement System
3. Walking, including Daoist Circle Walking
4. Taijiquan (Taichi Chuan)
5. Qigong (ChiKung) Daoyin
In the Internal Arts school (Chinese: Nèijiā 內家), we practice to develop our internal strength & health. We work on above mentioned aspects to increase, vitality, longevity, relaxation, flexibility, mental and spiritual development, self-confidence, concentration and will-power. The counterpart is the External Arts school (Chinese: Wàijiā 外家), like fitness, Kung Fu, Kick Boxing etc. where the approach is focused on physiological aspects. External and internal bodywork can provide you with a more complete training.

1. Why should you practice Meditation?
Meditation is good for calming the mind and to wake up the consciousness and self-awareness. It helps your body and mind to relax with a minimum of distractions. Nowadays we are confronted with many challenges in life that cause a lot of stress and insecurity.

With regular practice of Meditation you can help yourself achieve more calmness of the mind and spirit. You can deal with the daily problems in a clear and effective way.

In the training I offer, you learn techniques to prepare you for meditation. The preparations are followed by breathing and energetic exercises. Finally you will learn standing, sitting and lying down meditations. You can use the classes to learn, to get feedback and to improve your daily training at home. Join the workshops and see what it can do for you.

2. What is Taijiwuxigong Spontaneous Movement all about?
Taijiwuxigong is a simple but profound system for self-healing. The benefits can be experienced by everyone even after a short period of practice. It is a synergy of Bodywork, Energy, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual work.

By practicing Taijiwuxigong you can stay young and healthy, improve your mental, athletic and artistic abilities and even cure yourself from illnesses.

Spontaneous movement allows the practitioner to connect to the vibrational force of the earth. It is used to activate the energy center in the lower abdomen (the Dantian). This creates spontaneous movements in the body. Spontaneous movement is the most natural of all movements, because it is generated from the body itself in alignment with the Earth (Di) and Heaven (Tian) force. Join the workshop to experience more of this unique system.

3. What can Daoist Circle Walking do for you?
The general requirements of the Daoist practice is to walk with the body in a natural way and do the movements in a comfortably. The practitioner strive to achieve a feeling of harmony while moving slowly. He walks balanced, smooth and gently in such a manner that the mind can remain undisturbed by the movement.

The Ba Gua Zhang Circle Walking practitioner employs numerous methods in changing the direction of the circle walk like the Tai Ji diagram pattern as seen in the picture above.

Circle Walking helps you to lose weight, get more energy and calm down your mind. If you had a rough day at work, you can do this technique to relax and feel energized again. You will learn basic principles and some variations during this workshop, that is mostly held outside or on the sea-side. Join us and achieve more.

4. What makes Taijiquan (Taichi Chuan) so special?
With Taijiquan you learn to integrate body, mind and spirit and gain full control of your body movements. You can learn how to use your body to distribute inner power and become more flexible both mentally as physically. You can also improve the coordination of your limbs and hip, root better to the ground and improve your health, vitality and concentration.

Taijiquan has many areas of exercise besides forms, like body posture training, mental training, energetic training and Taiji Pushing hands.

Researchers have found that intensive Taiji practice shows favorable effects on the promotion of balance control, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness. It has shown to reduce the risk of falls in both healthy elderly patients and those recovering from chronic stroke, heart failure, high blood pressure, sclerosis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and fibromyalgia. The younger you start practicing Taiji the better. Join us on the workshops.

5. What makes Qigong (ChiKung) different?
Qigong consists of internal stretching (Daoyin) and an energetic part (Xie Qi). Daoyin 導literally means “guiding and stretching”. It is a 5000 year old traditional Chinese form of “calisthenics” (Beauty Strength) and sometimes referred to as Taoist Yoga. Postures and soft stretching movements are combined with breathing, concentration, visualization, massage and body tapping techniques to release excessive stress, emotions, heat and cold out of your body. It detoxifies the muscles and connective tissue.

The energetic part focusses on the meridians (energy channels of the body) in order to keep the energy flowing. As long as the energy can flow easily you can be healthy.
The benefits of Qigong are extensive if you practice regularly. Join to experience more of these benefits.
