Luohan Gong

Qigong gentle moving forms and meditation classes are beneficial to all levels. These are ongoing weekly classes where we focus on grounding the body and nervous system, getting out of the body’s stress response, clearing out the lymphatic system, improving blood flow and circulation, boosting the immune system, clearing the mind and body of worry, fear, and stuck or imbalanced emotions that weaken the body’s natural ability to heal. 

 

Ready to get started? Come join us and treat yourself to an hour of getting to know the magic of you a little more. One of the primary forms we focus on in our level 1 class is the first form “The Hands of the 18 Luohan” within the Luohan Gong system.

 

The Hands of the 18 Luohan was originally developed for the first monks of the Shaolin temple during the 6th century by Bodhidarma who has come to be known as the founder of Chen Buddhism or Zen. Choy Fook, a surviving monk to escape the destruction of the Shaolin temple in 1723 passed the Luohan Gong system on to Chan Heung; who’s family became the heirs of the Shaolin tradition. The Hands of the 18 Luohan is one of four forms that never left the inner circle of the Chan family until taught to Sifu Gasper Garcia. It is known as the origin, the pattern from which many of our modern day martial arts have stemmed.
