Brendan will present us with a variety of exercise drills designed to develop our relaxation skills. This workshop will help both beginners and advanced students of any art to improve their understanding of weight transfer, balance, using effortless power and how to be a body.
Brendan uses humor and warmth to take others on the journey that is Cheng Hsin. Regardless of where you are starting, or the discipline you are working with (martial arts, or some other area such as playing a sport, or even music), there is something here for you to help you do it better.
Cheng Hsin which was created by Peter Ralston is a seminal study of mind, movement, function and effectiveness. Through a thorough study and practice on the principles put forth in Cheng Hsin, one can become more grounded and more efficient in most any physical and mental activity.
Brendan Lea is a long time practitioner of Cheng Hsin, beginning with his introduction at the Rochester T’ai Chi Ch’uan Center and continuing through his multi-year apprenticeship working directly and intensely with Peter at his residence in Texas. He has risen to become one of only ten level 4 Cheng Hsin practitioners in the world.
Brendan returns to Rochester to help people learn about the “how” of Cheng Hsin and its benefits not only in the martial area, but in a surprising number of areas. He shows how and helps others find out how to make grounding, balance, relaxation and being present in the moment real activities. This provides a base to work from in improving how one moves and even how one thinks.
Come join Brendan in this informative workshop at the T’ai Chi Center.
