The Three Keys of Thaichiwa Qigong
The three keys of Thaichiwa, the name of the – Mind, Body, Spirit, Chi exercises, Mick Von Doxtater practices and teaches are: Movement – Meals – Massage. The goal is to achieve and support a state of balance and harmony upon which good health and can rest.
In 1976, Mick was first introduced to the Eastern concept of Chi (Qi) by his first teacher. That teacher was an US Navy Seal Team member who had just returned to the United States after two tours of duty in Vietnam. He opened the first dojo in West Michigan.
This teacher brought back from Southeast Asia – new words, ideas, and moves never seen here before. His movements were proven to be true as they were tested the only way truth can be tested… in life… and these moves were alive and passed on.
Mick formed the idea that the healing arts and the martial arts were two sides of the same coin, a currency that could be trusted if used correctly. Thus, Mick’s mind was made up at a young age and the path to study the power of Vital Energy was set.
Mick’s first lesson is – You must put knowledge into action to gain understanding. The key principles are: You and action.
Benefits of Thaichiwa Qigong
According to Mick, the benefits of Qigong training are genuine and irrefutable. The secret of learning this ancient practice to heal and to stay healthy is simply in the “doing!” So, self-care is the prescription here!
We were born to move. Qigong consists of gentle movements that are repeated. Almost anyone can do these gentle exercises. Aside the benefits of mindfulness, Qigong movements gently strengthen and stretch the body, increase fluid flow (blood, synovial, and lymph). Qigong increases proprioception, the awareness of how the body moves through space and enhances balance.
Join us today to learn this gentle, ancient movement practice for health and vitality. As Mick says
One of the great things about Thaichiwa Qigong training is that the older you get and the longer you train, the smarter, faster, stronger and better looking you get. What else in life can you say that about? Start young, stay young!
