Sets of Qigong Exercises

Recommended Posts

So, as I read more and more qigong books, I see all kinds of exercises I can do. It's got me wondering what kinds of exercises I can do back-to-back. Like, if in a gym workout, you can do chest, back, legs. Can I do the same kind of thing with qigong? Like do micro/macro orbit. Then do transport training. End with something else.

 

Anyone got qigong training regimes like this? I'm curious what one looks like.

I do 8 brocades followed by Yi Jin Jing. This is after 20 minutes of meditation.

Any legit qigong system will have a prescribed order of exercises. It isnt like lifting--you cant just do a bunch of random things in a row. Its more like building a tower, brick by brick--you cant work on the 3rd floor coffee room till you get to the 3rd floor.

 

So its best not to look at isolated exercises, but at whole systems. Depending on your needs and goals, a systematic program might begin with active exercises (like baduanjin) and finish with static postures (standing post or meditation) or vice versa.
