Movements of Power

Advanced Chi Kung Course
with Sifu Thomas

Eight Weeks from 8th February 2024

Live via Zoom

Would you like to deepen your understanding and practice of Chi Kung?

Do you want to improve your health and well-being, and strengthen your inner power?

Are you ready to take your Chi Kung practice to the next level?

Strengthen Your Inner Power

Most Chi Kung students are only familiar with the Yin positions of Zhan Zhuang. These are very popular and have been widely practiced for many decades.

However, for each of the well-known Yin postures, there is also a Yang posture and Shi Li movements that are very effective and are rarely taught.

Sifu Thomas will guide you through these advanced methods and concepts, so that you can continue to practice these exercises on your own after the course.

This course is for you, if you already have a basic understanding of Chi Kung, and want to advance your training.

This powerful system is like a tiger.

Sneaking upon the practitioner, it looks so calm and steady.

Yet so much power is given and returned.

In this course you will learn to

Develop a deeper understanding of Chi Kung principles and practices.

Improve your physical and mental health, and reach a new level of inner power through advanced Chi Kung techniques.

Take your Chi Kung practice to the next level through the conscious interplay of Yin and Yang in the movements of Shi Li.

As a result of this training, you’ll gain a greater sense of balance, focus, and peace of mind.

Of all the different Qi Gong styles, Zhan Zhuang exercises are the most effective for recharging our energy reservoir.

My gratitude goes to Sifu Thomas for bringing this Chi Kung system to Germany many years ago. Through him I discovered my passion for Zhan Zhuang.

Shi Li – Movements of Power

The advanced practice of Shi Li is traditionally translated as “Power Testing”.

Its deeper meaning is Movements of Power.

These slow, careful movements take place on one spot.

They involve the movement of the whole body and are an indispensable part of the martial arts training.

Shi Li is practiced to develop the skillful synchronization of mind and body.”

Master Lam, The Way of Power

Although Zhan Zhuang and Shi Li training are the foundation of any serious martial arts training, the focus of this course is on the health benefits of this highly effective training.

Da Cheng Chuan fighting methods are not part of this course.

Additional Special Exercises

In addition to the Shi Li movements, you’ll learn:

Reverse Breathing

A special practice that is closely related to an advanced form of Shi Li

Yang Postures

Powerful extensions of the standard Yin postures

Yin Yang theory and its relevance to Chi Kung training is rounding off the course.

Yang positions, Movements of Power (Shi Li) and Reverse Breathing are rarely taught.

Sign up for this Advanced Chi Kung course and take the first step towards reaching a new level of inner power.

Don’t let this opportunity pass you by!

Sifu Thomas has provided me a wealth of rewarding aspects and new ideas for my practice.

In Zhan Zhuang I realize the essence of the martial arts:

Inner strength, serenity, calmness and grounding.

Individual Coaching with Sifu Thomas

In addition to the lessons and practicing together with the group, this advanced course includes an individual coaching session with Sifu Thomas.

Metal Shi Li to strengthen the lungs​

Four years ago, Sifu Thomas started teaching Metal Shi Li, an advanced Chi Kung exercise to strengthen the lungs.

The feedback since then has been very positive.

For example, in one case, Metal Shi Li was instrumental in restoring full lung function. The lungs had been compromised by Covid-19 disease.

Although the pandemic is not as dangerous as it was in the early years, this particularly effective exercise is still of great importance to all of us, as the lungs are an essential element of our well-being.

Metal Shi Li is just one example of how Shi Li can be used within the framework of the Five Elements.

The course covers all Five elements as well as Wu Chi.
