Tai Chi and Qigong are effective disciplines for exploring the connection between mind and body. Through a gentle sequence of movements, along with exercises in meditation, breathing, and physical conditioning you’ll develop increased alignment, balance, and coordination. You’ll move into greater flexibility and relaxation; clarity and calmness of mind; and sensitivity to your own internal world.
In this class, we train in the “Practical Method” Chen style of Tai Chi and Qigong, based on the pragmatic use of movements and a deep, physiological understanding of the practice’s healing and therapeutic potential.
Traditional Chinese martial arts have formed the center of Bruno Ballestrero’s life since 1999. Bruno’s sincere dedication to these practices seeps through everything he does. He engages his students with patience and the confidence that each can progress strongly at their own level. He models his movement practices with precision and a cool inner fire.
Bruno has taught tai chi, chi kung (qigong), and Shaolin kung fu professionally since 2004, and enjoys sharing these centuries-old practices as powerful tools for mental, physical, and spiritual health today. He lived in Hawai‘i from 2012-2019 and directed a martial arts and wellness center in Kailua before returning to his native Argentina. He is currently a student of Chen Zhonghua, founder of the “Practical Method” of Chen style tai chi, with whom he has studied in the U.S., Canada, and China.
