EXPERIENCE & LEARN:  The Yuen Method  | Energetic Ki Healing | Vibrational Ki Fitness

At this workshop, you will:

  • Experience peace, neutrality, relaxation as a result of instant releases of negative thoughts, emotions, stress, tension, and more…
  • Energize your mind, body, cells & systems, in-turn healing your body of pain & dis-ease
  • Use Vibrational Fitness Bars to activate internal and external fitness
  • Learn & understand the basics of how to apply the Yuen Method in your life for Health, Fitness, Relationship, Prosperity & more…


The Yuen Method teaches us to energetically identify underlying weaknesses (root causes) of our issues, ailments and challenges. And then, to change those weaknesses to strengths with a focus on the midline, or connecting to (KI, QI, CHI) which in turn release or eliminate our issues, ailments or challenges.

The Yuen Method is the result of ancient Chinese Shaolin temple energy-harnessing methods, combined with the knowledge that anatomy, physiology, structural analysis, energetic techniques, quantum physics, Qi and Shen Gong collectively offer. The method was created by Dr. Kam Yuen, as a result of his lifelong study and experience with martial arts, nutritional therapy, homeopathy and in-depth experience as both a structural engineer and doctor of chiropractic.


Yuen Method Vibrational Fitness was engineered and implemented by Dr. Kam Yuen, D.C., Grandmaster of Shaolin Kung Fu and Aerospace Engineer to increase physical intelligence to maximize physical functions, physical performance, reduction of body weight, aging appearance, and quality of life as you age and to increase life expectancy.

You can have a healthier, more fit and rejuvenated body in just a few minutes using the Yuen Method Fitness Bar. As you shake the Yuen Method Fitness Bar, it creates a vibration throughout your entire body, deleting pain, stress, fatigue, fat, improving muscle strength, stimulating bone growth, increasing circulation of the blood and lymph and radically vibrating all your cells, molecules, atoms and quantum particles, all the way up and down your body structure so that you vibrate with greatly increased vitality.

We are made up of literally nothing more than vibrating energy. Humans are made of cells, which are made of atoms, which are made of particles, and those so-called particles are actually just vibrating energy. This should help you understand why VIBRATIONAL FITNESS is so important, not only to our body, mind and spirit, but to everything in the Universe.


tai njio photoTai Njio (Alexander Shanti’s Aunti/Mom) will introduce and facilitate the Yuen Method and Vibrational Fitness.

Trained and Certified by Dr. Kam Yuen, in 2003, Tai Njio has since then facilitated amazing shifts in over 2800 individuals internationally with the Yuen Method. She has taught Dr. Kam Yuen’s work in the US and Canada, leading over 75 classes and seminars.

Tai is now re-introducing his work locally as she knows it is the fastest and most effective way to shift out of the negative, be strengthened to support what you want, and to keep mind, body and spirit balanced throughout your day.

27 April 2015 BKA Community Newsletter

April was full of exciting ki aikido events. We started the month with a well-attended 15th Annual Aikido Summit Denver. Villacorta Sensei represented Rocky Mountain Ki Society and led more than 70 enthusiastic Colorado aikidoka at this popular aikido friendship seminar.

We followed this up with a Ki Aikido Demonstration at CU Boulder’s International Festival, where BKA families, students and instructors, ages 6-60, got a chance to perform their arts in front of thousands of iFest attendees. We even got to sing Satya, who turned 6 that day, a “Happy Birthday” on stage!

We start out this week with our Spring Children’s Test. Nearly 20 children from BKA have been practicing diligently for months to prepare for this rank advancement opportunity. Congratulations to them (and their parents) for their dedication and hard work! Please come and support them! Especially if you have children of your own or have been considering coming to class for a while, this is a great opportunity to see what young children can accomplish through continued practice at BKA.

Course work will include practice of the relaxed taiso, hitori waza exercises, Ki testing, Ki exploration partner exercises, Ki breathing and Ki meditation. Participants may wear regular, comfortable clothes for this class (traditional Ki Aikido uniform is not required). Students will not be required to sit seiza (on their knees) during the class. Please pass this on to someone who may be interested in only Ki training!
