Soaring Crane Qigong

Soaring Crane Qigong was introduced to the world in 1979 by Master Zhao Jin-Xiang. With thousands of qigong forms available, Soaring Crane Qigong rapidly became (and remains) one of the most popular forms in China, with well over 20,000,000 people practicing. The reasons are many: The Five Routines of Soaring Crane Qigong are easily learned, students begin to notice changes in mind, body, and spirit shortly after beginning practice, and it is one of the most effective forms of medical qigong practiced today.

5 Animals Qigong

The animal sets are among the oldest registered qigong sets and can be dated back to Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220). The creation of Wu Qin Xi was attributed the famous Chinese Physician and Surgeon Hua Tuo (110-207) who had great skills as a surgeon, acupuncturist, herbalist and knowledge of human anatomy.

Baduanjin Qigong

Baduanjin Qigong, (also called Eight-Section Brocades/Eight Silk Weaving, etc.), is along with the 5-animal sets, probably one of the oldest qigong sets, with illustrations dating back thousands of years.

Emei Qigong

Emei Qigong combines both Buddhist and Daoist thought and practices, with the Daoist elements addressing the health of the physical body and the Buddhist elements focusing on spiritual advancement.

Hunyuan Qigong

Hunyuan Qigong is a system of qigong created by Taijiquan Master Feng Zhiqiang. Master Feng received transmission from two of the titans of twentieth century internal martial arts, Chen Family Taijiquan Grandmaster Chen Fake and Xinyi Liuhequan Grandmaster Hu Yaozhen (considered by many to be the father of modern qigong).

Buy the Book!

This book is a book about Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Standing Meditation. The book is both an introduction to, and an in-depth presentation. The book addresses the beginner, the more experienced student, and the teacher. It covers the Martial, as well as the Civil art of Tai Chi.There are many training systems that are focused on strengthening the body, but that have very little or no relevance to the strengthening and development of the mind.

In reverse there exist many meditative practices, which are focused on the strengthening and development of the mind, but in the same way neglect the body. Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Standing Meditation are training systems which both strengthen the mind, the ability to use the body more appropriately, as well as strengthening the internal organs. They will help you find tranquility, balance, rest, and regeneration, and help the individual to become better at exactly what he or she yearns for.
