Workshop Details

July 13, 2001,  July 13, 2001, Friday, 2:00Pm - 6:00PM, 4-hour Workshop," Craniosacral Dragon Regimen", a set of ancient Chi Kung (Qigong) exercises.-  Chi Festival 2001 - Chapman University, Orange, CA.

The dragon "loong," a mythical creature that represents ferocity, power, and magnificence, was the symbol of the emporors throughout ancient Chinese history. Chinese legion has it that this set, known as "Loong Kung", was designed exclusively for royalty, for their maintenance of good health, longevity, and virility.  The ancient Chinese Qigong masters created "Loong Kung" to generate, nurture, and encourage the flow of chi throughout the spine, including that which is now known as the "craniosacral system".  This set of seven exercises gently limbers, stretches, stimulates, and tones practically every joint and muscle in the body, invigorating and strengthening the entire system, encouraging it to function at its peak.  This regimen has been described as "The most beautiful movements I've ever seen!  Craniosacral Dragon Regimen will give you the grace of a swan, the power of a panther, the flexibility of a baby, and the focus of a saint." 

Nancy Zi will begin this workshop by teaching the basics of "The Art of Breathing," her abdominal deep breathing technique, to facilitate the learning of this Chi Kung regimen. Shallow breathing, disrupts the flow of the breath and chi, thus frequently causes uneasiness and discomfort, especially while practicing Chi Kung.  A sound breathing technique is not only the building block for learning this regimen, but for learning many
other worthwhile disciplines as well.
