Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi is a form of qigong, based on the philosophy of taijiquan (tai chi), which extracts movements from the traditional yang-style taijiquan. Lin Housheng, professor at the university for Chinese medicine in Shanghai developped the system in 1979.

Shibashi emphasizes the diligent harmonisation of movements and breath.

It is a form of great beauty, which is not only a joy to perform, but which also helps to develop deep relaxation. Bones, joints and muscles are being mobilised softly, and their litheness and strengh is preserved to high age. By constant, but calm stimulation of blood circuit and metabolism, organic illness can be prevented.

We teach three sets and integrate parts of the fourth set into our curricula.

Since 2009 master Wing Cheung annually comes to Baden-Baden for his "Instructor Training Course"!
