Easy Crane Dance (Tai chi)
Crane Dancing Qigong was developed by Tori Fiore in 2007. It is an easy form (sequence) of tai chi that combines ancient Qigong movements with the energy of dance. This mindful and meditative form honors Air, Water, Earth, and Fire.
In Easy Crane Dance, the original Crane Dance sequence is modified for those with balance issues. Forward and backward steps are replaced with stationary moves. Movements that are done standing on one leg are modified to be done using both legs.
Each workshop will provide a brief overview/review of the form and then focus on a section of movements. Each movement (or short sequence of movements) has a name and will be taught individually. Arm and leg actions will be demonstrated and practiced separately before being combined into a single complete movement. Transitions from movement to movement will be taught and practiced as well.
The Easy Crane Dance Workshops are a great workout for both mind and body.
Easy Crane Dance can be done with the assistance of a chair for balance or sitting if needed.
