HOW IS THE AKNANDA METHOD PRACTICED?

An interior and exterior training. WEI DAN – NEI DAN

Postures and sequence of movements that require the training of equilibrium and balance of all the structure as well as flexibility and strength of the base and spinal cord.

Core and Dantien center are developed significantly both on an internal and external level.

In all the proposed exercises, we stimulate the “Qi” energy flow, vitality through our meridians, seeking for mind- body- Yin Yang equilibrium, fostering a present time consciousness, a joyful and contemplative spirit.

COMPONENTS

Aknanda methodology is a new form of the QiGong discipline based on the combination of different traditional styles and ways of Qi Gong – Gong Fu (Taiji Quan, Bagua Zhang, 5 Animals), Medical Qi Gong, meditation and breathing techniques. This method takes from each systems the different aspects and skills proposed and highlighted to consolidate physical (Jing), energetic (Qi) and mind/spirit (Shen) harmonization in only one training.

EDUCATION- “THROUGH THE JOURNEY”

The training is divided into 3 levels. The trainee will gradually acquire both the techniques and knowledge of each phase.

STEP BY STEP: all levels are interconnected, the trainee will experience each step in a particular way, focusing on acknowledging that step only, to continue learning more skills every time.

It comes a time when all these phases are only one, a single matrix that flows and grows “through the journey”.

PHYSICAL- ENERGY- MIND

LEVEL 1 – PHYSICAL
The dimension of our essence (Jing) is responsible to set our structure. Getting physically prepared requires coordination, postures, movements and equilibrium, which are all necessary to become mechanically healthy, to promote the flow of energy, to become more vital and to raise our level of awareness.
LEVEL 2 – ENERGY “Qi”
Once the previous step has been undergone: setting up, alignment, central training, the objective will be to join our movements with breathing techniques, consolidating our integrated, stable and relaxed positions. To work connected (feet, legs, center, arms, palms) opens our path to grow and control our Qi (vital energy). During this phase, we further work on opening the meridians (canals of energy) flowing into a deeper field of the training and self-meditation.
LEVEL 3 – MIND/SPIRIT
This third level consolidates levels 1 and 2 fostering the “mind´s emptiness”, getting to the deepest part of the training. “Shen” symbolizes the spirit/mind/intention (Yi). The energy is guided by the mind. A “water mind” is a bright, calm, cool, flexible and strong spirit that has the power to create, transform and heal.
