Program Development

My spir­i­tu­al path start­ed with my emi­gra­tion to the USA. There I was intro­duced to yoga and med­i­ta­tion for the first time. I took up Hatha Yoga, attend­ed var­i­ous class­es and prac­ticed almost every day. After dis­cov­er­ing Parama­hansa Yoganan­da I stayed for retreats in Encen­i­tas Cal­i­for­nia where I was taught some new exer­cis­es. Upon return­ing to Aus­tria I start­ed train­ing in Kine­si­ol­o­gy in Graz, Aus­tria. The new knowl­edge helped me keep my chil­dren and myself healthy for years to come.

Since I had gone back to my for­mer job as a teacher I decid­ed to do some of the exer­cis­es with my stu­dents in ele­men­tary school. Every morn­ing we spend the first ten to fif­teen min­utes to go through a pro­gram that I had designed espe­cial­ly for them and which enabled them to not only feel good about them­selves but also jump start­ed their mind. Test results and love of learn­ing soared to new heights. Par­ents request­ed to get to know the exer­cis­es as well and prac­ticed them togeth­er with their chil­dren at home.

After being trans­ferred from ele­men­tary to sec­ondary school I end­ed up in a sit­u­a­tion that was tough. In order to sur­vive this new teach­ing sit­u­a­tion I prac­ticed var­i­ous exer­cis­es and med­i­tat­ed every morn­ing. Years lat­er dur­ing my stud­ies in the Unit­ed States I dis­cov­ered Falun Dafa exer­cis­es (Falun Gong) which I taught myself with pic­tures from the web. After a year I met a group in Mainz, Ger­many and was able to learn some more details and the phi­los­o­phy behind it.

About two years ago after some tur­moil in my rela­tion­ship left me feel­ing pow­er­less and far from con­tent which prompt­ed my health to dete­ri­o­rate. I turned to the web for help and got some online train­ing in QiGong. It took me a while to learn the exer­cis­es. Grad­u­al­ly I start­ed to put togeth­er a pro­gram that com­bined the new exer­cis­es with many of the things that I had learned through­out my life. Faith­ful­ly prac­tic­ing it every day I had to change things again and again until I was sat­is­fied with my new cre­ation.

My youngest son after see­ing my new­ly devel­oped pro­gram told me that I had done what Bruce Lee many years ago did. He took the view that tra­di­tion­al mar­tial art tech­niques were too rigid and for­mal­is­tic to be prac­ti­cal. Lee decid­ed to devel­op a sys­tem with an empha­sis on prac­ti­ca­bil­i­ty, flex­i­bil­i­ty, speed and effi­cien­cy. Lee empha­sized what he called “The Style of no Style”. I remem­bered that once when research­ing Tai Chi on the web I dis­cov­ered a branch of Tai Chi that called itself the no style.

My new and unique pro­gram ulti­mate­ly is not a mat­ter of pet­ty rigid tech­niques but of high­ly devel­oped spir­i­tu­al­i­ty and physique. Learn the exer­cis­es, lis­ten to your body and feel your way into maybe doing things dif­fer­ent­ly or incor­po­rat­ing oth­er move­ments that feel good to your body. Remem­ber that there are no good or bad exer­cis­es; your per­for­mance of them is either good, bet­ter or best. The only author­i­ty in regard to your vital­i­ty and health is your own body. It will tell you what is good for you. Do not for­get that thoughts cre­ate your real­i­ty; learn to trust your own feel­ings and lis­ten to your body.

Program Basics

Ener­gy is the basis for a ful­filled life. It pro­vides body and mind with strength, con­nects us to our soul and helps us cre­ate joy, love, and har­mo­ny in life. Our body is an amaz­ing tool that enables us to sup­port its self-heal­ing pow­ers with exer­cise, breath­ing and healthy nutri­tion. Tai Chi tells us that if there is har­mo­ny in our move­ments there is also har­mo­ny in our mind.

Common benefit

The smooth flow of Chi through­out our body strength­ens our immune sys­tem, teach­es inter­nal relax­ation and coor­di­nates body, mind, breath, and ener­gy flow. The exer­cis­es help us to detox­i­fy the body, improve blood cir­cu­la­tion, release block­ages, increase ener­gy, restore vital­i­ty, and there­fore pro­mote longevi­ty and our gen­er­al well-being. At the same time we are able to bal­ance our emo­tions, clear aware­ness and redis­cov­er our intu­ition and cre­ativ­i­ty. Part 1 and 2 for the morn­ing are geared towards strength­en­ing and har­mo­niz­ing the ener­gy in our body. Part 3 for the evening will bal­ance us and help to relax and calm down.

Breathing

As impor­tant as the smooth, slow and har­mo­nious move­ments is breath­ing. Breath­ing lets us feel alive. Exter­nal ener­gy becomes inter­nal ener­gy. Be atten­tive with your breath­ing because it con­nects – as with­out so with­in. If the move­ment is extend­ing parts of your body breathe in, if it con­tracts breathe out. This enables you to keep a slow pace. After you learned the exer­cis­es and know the sequence you might want to close your eyes because it keeps your atten­tion focused on how your body feels.

Program Overview

The pro­gram con­sists of 3 parts. Part 1 has the focus to acti­vate most acu­pres­sure points and merid­i­ans (there is no graph­ic because you can eas­i­ly find that on the web) and ends with some of the most impor­tant exer­cis­es from QiGong and Tai Chi.

 

The exer­cis­es in Part 2 are grouped in threes with the same focus. This way it is eas­i­er to remem­ber the sequence. After each group of three we hold the hands about 2 inch­es apart over the navel. Wpmen have the left hand on the out­side, men the right one. This anchors the new ener­gy in our body. After a short while the hands go down and form a cir­cle. Palms face upward and rest above each oth­er. The hands form the Dhyana Mudra which rep­re­sents the spir­i­tu­al pow­er of the fire which trans­forms all impu­ri­ties. It is a calm­ing ges­ture of med­i­ta­tion that forms the per­fect bal­ance between body, mind and soul and is at the same time also a sym­bol for peace and inner strength.

Part 3 shows slow med­i­ta­tive move­ments which decrease stress and calm and har­mo­nize the ener­gy field at the end of the day. They bring your focus back to your­self and help you relax and unwind.

 

Posture

We stand com­plete­ly relaxed with legs apart. Knees are always slight­ly bent as are the arms. Fin­gers slight­ly spread but relaxed. This pos­ture enhances the flow of ener­gy. Stretched arms and legs block the flow. The pelvis con­trols move­ment and is the basis for vital ener­gy. The spine is the ener­gy gen­er­a­tor.

Demo

Ener­gy Con­nec­tion offers an easy to learn pro­gram for acti­vat­ing your ener­gy by using knowl­edge and wis­dom of east­ern tra­di­tions. The pro­gram con­sists of 3 parts with move­ments from QiGong, TaiChi, Yoga, Falun Gong and Kine­si­ol­o­gy woven into a holis­tic for­mat which acti­vates and enhances our body’s ener­gy, cre­ates a bet­ter flow and har­mo­nizes it.

 

Slow and unin­hib­it­ed flow of Qi in our body strength­ens the immune sys­tem, bal­ances emo­tions, decreas­es feel­ings of stress and inner rest­less­ness and cre­ates har­mo­ny and flex­i­bil­i­ty in body and mind. Because of this we expe­ri­ence clear­er more focused aware­ness which in turn opens the gate­way to intu­ition and cre­ativ­i­ty.

 

Move­ments like this not only enhance your body’s ener­gy but at the same time your mind’s. There­fore it is per­fect for stressed employ­ees, world trav­el­ers, seniors who want to stay healthy, and for all peo­ple who strive for joie de vivre and men­tal clar­i­ty.
