Yang Style Taijiquan Training with Master Fukui Yang and Rick Barrett ~ Approved for 12.5 PDA Credits!

About us

Taijiquan is usually taught from the outside in: you learn the choreography, practice for years, and gradually come to understand what’s going on inside. In this seminar, 2 teachers/healers with over 70 years of martial arts/clinical experience teach it from the inside out, showing not just how to feel the qi, but what to do with it.

Taijiquan is a martial art, a practice for health & healing, a moving meditation, and a spiritual practice. In this workshop, Fukui Yang and Rick Barrett will share their extensive knowledge and experience in a loving, understandable way, and also teach students how to get the most out of their taichi practice. Master Yang brings the unbroken tradition of authentic Chinese martial arts and philosophy while Rick Barrett takes us “through the Western Gate” to translate esoteric principles into teachable, experienceable abilities. 

Taijiquan is a martial art, a practice for health and healing, a moving meditation, and a spiritual practice. Each aspect will be explored and discussed, with lots of opportunities to really feel what is going on.

This seminar is for taijiquan teachers and intermediate/advanced students. It is organized around Yang Cheng Fu’s 13 Original Postures, a short powerful Yang style form that Master Fukui Yang learned from his granduncle. Each posture in the form will be explored, analyzed, and tested in the light of key taijiquan principles:

  • Yin/Yang Theory and Practice
  • Insubstantial/Substantial (Xu/Shi)
  • Energetic Coherence (Zheng-ti Jin)
  • Central Equilibrium (Zhong Ding)
  • Five Elements (Wu Xing)
  • Song (Relaxation into essential structure)
  • Song Kua (Release of Hip Tension)
  • Joint Alignment and Sequential Activation
  • Jin (Expression of qi through the body, directed by consciousness)
  • Rooting
  • Shen (Spirit)
