QI GONG SEQUENCES
THE 8 BROCADES OR THE BADUANJIN
This is one of the most common forms of Chinese qigong used as exercise. The Baduanjin is primarily designated as a form of medical qi gong meant to improve health. As a whole, it is broken down into eight separate exercises, each focusing on a different physical area and qi meridians. This sequence can be incorporated into daily practice and is considered to be 8 steps to healthy living & also used as a preventive medicine.
THE FIVE ANIMAL FORMS: SNAKE,DRAGON,TIGER,LEOPARD & CRANE.
In these forms, we imitate the characteristics and physical movement of each animal in a series of postures. The 5 Animal Forms are closely aligned with the 5 Element theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine; each animal is linked to an element and so to the seasons of the year, to the organs and the emotions. These forms improve respiration, digestion, circulation, flexibility, bone health & overall health and wellbeing.
MA WANG DUI SEQUENCE.
The Ma Wang Dui is a set of 12 movements, each connected to the 12 main meridians.
These easy-to-learn movements work with the flow of vital energy through the meridians and encourage connection between the external movements of the body and the internal activity of the mind. Through rising and squatting, extending and withdrawing the limbs, bending and stretching, the movements help maintain health and cultivate the spirit.
12 STEP DAO YIN.
Formulated by the Chinese Health Qi Gong Foundation, Dao Yin Qigong consists of movements all extensively researched and designed to strengthen different internal organs and their corresponding body systems. Specific benefits include building up the body's immune system and regenerative capacity. It can therefore aid quicker recovery from illness and create a sense of well being.
