Shaolin Institute New Orleans will offer a two-hour Tai Chi & Tai Gong special class, plus healthy food, for the local health conscious community to improve their life style for a healthier living. The event will be held at 9:30 AM-11:30 PM on Saturday, April 28th, 2012 at Audubon Park across Tulane University on St. Charles.

Anyone coming to the event on that day or coming to the Shaolin Institute on any day in April will also have the opportunity to get a special one month package of Tai Chi-Qi Gong or Tai Gong classes (8-12 sessions) for a special fee of only $30, as well as a Free T-Shirt.

The same programs will be offered, at the same time, in Norcross, GA, at Norcross Pinckneyville Park by the Family Pavilion Lawn or Shaoolin Institute in Norcross about 20 miles from downtown Atlanta; the program will also be held at Cathedral Square in downtown Mobile and Pelpier Park in Thibodaux, LA.

The grandmaster Shi DeRu will conduct the program in Norcross, GA and his top instructors Chen Zhe and Li Qiang will respectively conduct the programs in New Orleans, Mobile as well as Thibodaux, LA.

This is a global health & healing event which will unfold across the planet, promoting peace and healing worldwide.

It is true indeed, as one of the staff members stated, that many of modern working people, especially company executives are often confined behind desk in endless work, seemingly without ever getting out. We often think about being free–for even a day–of a truly happier life. This is that day.”

Everyone who comes to the park will start the program together, learning special breathing and stretching Tai Gong Yi Jin Jing, developing a calm and peaceful mind for 20 minutes. Then they will take a 15-minute break watching a short live presentation of Tai Chi and Tai Gong.

They will then be in two groups according to interests: one group will learn the basics and essence of Tai Chi; another group will learn Tai Gong for natural healing. Before the end of the lessons, the two groups will exchange classes, covering the other group’s lessons. The healthy food will be served at the end of the lessons, to let each participant have a smoothie and a healthy feel for the day.

Tai Gong is a combination of Tai Chi and Qi Gong, based on ancient Shaolin Chan and medical exercise therapy practices. It focuses on Qi (energy) empowerment and body/mind cleansing, as well as Qi redirecting.

Tai Chi and Tai Gong programs are internal mind-body exercises which not only make any stressed individual see the true value of mind-body freedom, but assist each individual for a better health and well-being.

Researchers at Harvard University have found growing evidence that this mind-body practice, which originated in China as an internal martial art exercise, has value in treating or preventing many health problems such as high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

Combined with traditional treatment, Tai Chi appears to be valuable for several medical conditions such as: anxiety, depression, back pain, arthritis, low bone density, breast cancer, heart disease, hypertension, Parkinson's disease, sleep problems, and stroke. Participating in Tai Chi can help to boost immune system function and improve respiratory-circulatory function.

A National Institutes of Health recently article stated, “Tai Chi, a traditional Chinese form of exercise, may help older adults avoid getting shingles by increasing immunity to varicella-zoster virus (VZV) and boosting the immune response to varicella vaccine in older adults.
