The physical and mental benefits of Qigong

Qigong (pronounced chee gung), is the Chinese art and science of using breathing techniques, gentle movement and meditation to cleanse, strengthen and circulate qi, the life energy.

Qigong Illustrated is a step-by-step guide complete with detailed instructions and colour photo sequences of the most effective movements, exercises and traditional routines, including Daoist Five, Eight Silk Brocade and Turning and Winding the Belt Vessel.

Centered on the three essential components of qigong (body, mind and breath), Qigong Illustrated’s straightforward, highly visual approach is the quickest and most effective way to experience the physical and mental benefits of each routine, such as improving your posture, strengthening your body, and reducing tension.

You will also learn to put together an effective qigong flow and combine routines to address your health and fitness needs.

Whether you are completely new to qigong or have practised for years, Qigong Illustrated will accompany you every step of the way to better health and self-awareness.
