We will be speaking about "The 6 Harmonies" as they are outlined in the practice Taiji MeihuaTtang Lang Quan. In our discussion we will address the similarities and differences in Tai Chi model and TLQ model. We will also talk about some of the benefits of the model, and real life scenario's where people can benefit from using the 6 harmonies in their daily life.
In this episode we will be interviewing Stephen McLaughlin of White Cloud Kung Fu Academy as we discuss the practice of lineage succession. Located in Blackburn, Lancashire of the United Kingdom. White Cloud Kung Fu Academy was founded by Sifu Derek Gordon in 1962 and is today guided by 2 of his students, Dave Cowell & Head Coach Bill Keith, both with more than 40 years of Martial Arts experience. Steven McLaughlin is one of 2 senior instructors both with nearly 2 decades of continuous Martial Arts experience under their belt. He currently teaches Long Boxing(Chang Chuan), Wing Chun, Hsing-I , Bagua Zhang and Yang style Taiji Chuan. He began his training in Chinese Gong Fu at the age of 6 and at age 20 he received his 3rd rank of black belt in 2010.
Lineage succession is the practice of grooming specific students to act as a vessel of transmission for a particular martial style. Tai Chi Chuan is one style in particular that uses lineage documentation much like a family tree to trace its roots and origination. These lineage holders are then entrusted to become caretakers of a particular style ensuring their art continues to thrive in its entirety. Lineage succession is predominantly practiced throughout Asia but we are finding that this method of knowledge preservation is also surfacing in the Asian martial arts in the western world.
Although White Cloud Kung Fu Academy does not officially use Lineage succession the principles of personal growth, self-realization, and lifetime cultivation, are carefully fostered and guided. Steven Mclaughlin is now the 3rd generation of instructors at White Cloud Kung Fu academy.
In Tai Chi—The Perfect Exercise: Finding Health, Happiness, Balance, and Strength, tai chi master and Taoist monk Arthur Rosenfeld presents the fundamentals of this martial art, explains how tai chi builds optimal health, and shows how this ancient practice is still relevant and useful in our modern lives. The first Westerner to receive monk's robes at China's Chun Yang Temple, Rosenfeld is one of the foremost experts on tai chi outside of Asia. He explains how Taoist philosophy, Chinese martial arts, and traditional Chinese medicine form the three pillars of tai chi, an ancient art that calms minds, tones muscles, and heals bodies through controlled, strength-building movements paired with guided meditation. Tune in to this segment of The Organic View Radio Show, as host, June Stoyer is joined by Arthur Rosenfeld to talk about his best-selling book, Tai Chi—The Perfect Exercise: Finding Health, Happiness, Balance, and Strength.

Greetings Group Fitness Instructor peeps!
As I finished my tai chi practice this morning, I was inspired to record this show.
What's MindBody fitness? What does that even mean? I describe how I interpret MindBody fitness and why it is important that GFIs pay attention to this essential healing practice.
Questions explored include:
How do we adapt a tai chi class successfully to a group fitness format?
How do instructors create a standard format for teaching tai chi to students
Is tai chi for fighting or healing in the group fitness arena?
Can fitness instructors learn to mimic martial arts forms effectively?
Do instructors need to know the martial (fighting) aspects of tai chi to teach it?
How long will it take before you can start teaching a tai chi class?
How is a tai chi class structured for a 30-minute session?
You can connect to me on my Facebook page as MindBody Group Fitness Arts Foundation.

Health problems, including preventable issues like high blood pressure, obesity, and type-2 diabetes, have become epidemic in our modern world. We are constantly bombarded by the latest healing trends whether it is the newest program, supplement, or drug. Millions of dollars are spent on research, and yet, effective solutions remain elusive for most. As a result, increasing numbers of individuals are discovering and using the principles of an ancient form of mind-body medicine called Ayruveda with great success, and without all of the negative side effects of prescription drugs.
Our CHI FOR YOURSELF guest is Michelle Fondin, author of THE WHEEL OF HEALING WITH AYURVEDA: An Easy Guide to a Healthy Lifestyle. The book offers an in-depth exploration of Ayurveda, which originated in India at least five thousand years ago and has stood the test of time.
