With roots in Chinese Medicine, philosophy and martial arts, Qigong is a centuries-old system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial-arts training.

 

Ba Duan Jin (The Eight Pieces of Brocade) was developed during the twelfth century by the famous general Yueh Fei as away to strengthen the body, to balance the vital functions and to drive stagnant energy and toxins from the system. Baduanjin is a very popular qigong set, ideal for beginners. Although simple, these exercises have a lot to offer. By involving your mind in your qigong practice you will get their full benefits. But, even by practicing the set as simple physical exercises, the Baduanjin routine will loosen your muscles, improve your posture, enhance your blood circulation, and relax you. Each exercise should be repeated 12 times. You may start off with 6 times each and add more repetitions. The ancient texts recommend 24 to 36 repetitions each.

The exercises can also be done from a seated position, as evidenced ancient texts and drawings.
