Legit channels/videos?

Recommended Posts

I was browsing YT and found a few videos/channels that I wanted to know if the stuff they're teaching is legit or if they are "making it up".

Be as it may, online stuff is the only way(for now) for me to get anything related to qigong and such, and of those I can only get either what's cheap or what's free so I do have a habit of(once starting to learn something) searching for and "acquiring"(saving) what I find to see it later all together.

 

The videos/channels in question are:

I tried the movement from the 2nd video of Swimming Dragon Qigong. Back in the day i experimented with it as a way of sublimating sexual energy. I found it to be quite effective. 

 

Ba Duan Jin or 8 Brocades is a set i experimented with when i first began training. Good for health....but i have not heard of anyone using it as a tool of deeper cultivation. 

 

Don't know anything about the rest of the videos.

Yeah, my question was more on the people teaching these things than the content of their teaching per se.

Do they seem legit?Or are they mixing legit knowledge with fake stuff?

 

This is what I am in doubt.Their legitimacy to be teaching what they are teaching.

Few people are skilled enough to teach Qigong beyond just doing the motions. Here's a few names that i believe are reputable. 

 

-Jenny Lamb 

-Tao Semko 

-Michael Lomax 

-Chunyi Lin

Many thanks.

 

I'll search for them and see what I can find.

EDIT: Now that I realized one of the names if from the guy of SFQ

I do not know about the other teachers you posted but I am on Nick Loffree's patreon and I find his practices to be very good.

They are better than his YT ones in some ways as they are basically his unlisted youtube videos( you get 6-8 a month for about $5) and you dont get as as distracted by the wonderful scenery !

I have to try that  Swimming Dragon form, looks very nice
