On Howard Choy’s Lecture “Unlocking the Mystery of Qi in Taijiquan and Qigong”
by Dr. Khoo Cheng Choo
Howard Choy , the Principal of Berlin-based Shou Yi Taijiquan and Qigong, is an internationally recognised Taiji, Qigong & Feng Shui expert. On 12 June 2018, he presented a most intriguing and engaging lecture on “Unlocking the Mystery of Qi in Taijiquan & Qigong” at Macquarie University, Sydney.
Howard, who has been a Tai Chi practitioner and instructor with over fifty years of experience spoke about the interrelationships of the Dao, the intertwined Yin and Yang and the mysterious Qi which impact our daily lives and yet which are difficult to define and quantify. He also demonstrated practices in the Chen and Yang styles that would help to cultivate Qi internally for health, self-defence and even Feng Shui.
The audience in the almost full capacity lecture theatre listened, spellbound, as Howard explained and demonstrated his ideas about internalising Qi in Tai Chi and Qigong practices.
The lecture generated and raised many interesting questions about Qi that were enthusiastically debated by Howard and amongst the participants who were remained in the theatre till 9.00 pm well after the lecture was finished.
It is hoped that, when Howard visits Australia next time, he will continue with another extended and stimulating lecture on the mystery of Qi in Tai Chi & Qigong.
