This Qigong Video, also known as Taoist Yoga, was designed for improving health and wellness. It is my daily Qi Gong routine and ever since I started it in 2016 I feel more energised, relaxed, focused and happy. My overall health is great and all thanks to these simple movements that are proved to effectively boost health.
Dating back to over 2.500 years, used by Chinese Medicine, Buddhism, Taoism and Martial Arts, Qi Gong is the act of nurturing health, nourishing life force energy by coordinating body movement with breathing. It is meditative and it both cleanses and strengthens, stimulating the circulation of energy. Qi Gong improves overall health and contributes to longevity, creating a peaceful state of mind.
Some of the main scientifically proven benefits of having a regular practice of Qigong are:
– Ease stress and promote balance
– Improve immunity and cancer-protection
– Improve cardio-pulmonary function
– Strengthen the organs
– Prevent injury of joints, ligaments and bones
– Loosen the muscles and build athletic power
– Speed recovery time from injuries and operations
– Improve longevity and vitality
The 8 Brocade Qigong is known as the 8 Silken Movements and it was primarily designed as a form of medical Qi Gong to improve health by harmonizing the function of the organs and glands (energy centers).
These exercises can be done daily or every other day to promote health and balance. Qigong is a wonderful activity to incorporate in your daily routine suitable for any individual of any age.
“Qigong cultivates our bodies through physical movement and develop in us acute mental awareness. We can also engage in regular meditation to nurture our insight. With a consistent meditation practice that can be as simple as breathing exercises, we can cultivate mindfulness and clarity to deal with our emotions in a healthy way. Through meditation we develop the equanimity to accept the unsatisfactory circumstances of our lives with compassion and loving kindness.”
