Moon’s Healthy Journey….
I love any practice that truly combines the mind, body and soul, so I met with JoAnna Schoon, a Tai Chi and Qigong expert! Barely 5 feet, she is so tiny but her powerful energies are tall in stature. Because she is so humble (a very Asian trait I might add), she feels very uncomfortable when anyone calls her a Master.
Having been taught by the great Tai Chi & Qigong Master Hui Lui of the Wen Wu School, JoAnna has been teaching and practicing Tai Chi and Qi Gong for over 30 years, so I would say she’s a master. While there are many schools of Tai Chi, JoAnna is especially well versed in the “Dayan” or Wild Goose Qigong, which is one of the major Qigong styles and practices.
Over the years, JoAnna has provided many Tai Chi and Qigong classes for free, so it is apparent that she has a passion and love for what she does. As our purpose in this life is to serve others, JoAnna’s willingness to teach these classes for free is her own wonderful way of doing so. Given her warmth and willingness to share information, I really enjoyed spending time with her and learning about the long traditions of Qigong.
We will be shooting video shows with JoAnna, who will demonstrate meditation and massage in preparation for and to optimize Qigong, as well as Qigong movements for sitting, standing and just for the hands. So stay tuned for these amazing shows with JoAnna! In the interim, for more information about JoAnna and her classes, please visit her website.
JoAnna in her Qigong element… I just think she’s so adorable and a master in her own right…
