Yoga and Qigong

Recommended Posts



I have recently come across Dr Yang Jwing Ming's book: Chikung -Health and Martials arts-. In this book, some hatha-yoga like exercises are described under Waidan qigong. Dr Yang says that the reader should not be surprised to find yoga postures falling under qigong practice because Chinese people have always considered India as a source of inspiration.


My shallow perception of Qigong is that it's very different both in theory and practice from hatha-yoga but I may have missed something.


Do you have any thoughts?
