Am not sure the kind of practice these exercises are based on? Does not seem to be like yoga.

Yes.  I do know what it is.  They are slow motion burpees.

 

Hearing of burpees for the first time.

"burpees are basically a combination of three individual strength moves: a plank, a push-up, and a squat."

" The burpee, a squat thrust with an additional stand between reps, is a full body exercise used in strength training. "

 

The above exercises don't seem to include planks, push-ups or squats though it is seems to be a full-body routine.

:lol:

 

I'm so sorry, Bhathen.  It was a joke, a very bad one apparently.  Burpees was something they used to make us do in gym class in school.  You're right, he's missing the squats....

 

(but they are doing slow motion jumping jacks)

 @manitou, u just told it to the wrong person .... it usually takes me ages to understand some of them. :)

 

The above exercise has been practiced for about 30 years in Master Thich Naht Hanh's monastery. They have two more - Ba Dua Jin and staff work based on Qigong. Came across this light and relaxed routine ... just want to make sure it was not qigong or something like that.

Why is it important that it is not qigong based, just out of curiosity?  Are you giving a class?

I had injured my knee muscle or nerve while doing the exercises advised by the physiotherapist. Over the last two months, there has been no improvement from therapy, resulting in a significant loss of energy. Tried acupuncture once and am now waiting for it to heal on its own. Joint-loosening type of exercises have been good for now but the above exercise feels better.

 

Qigong appears to be incompatible with my practice or it might be that one of them amplifies the other by a thousand times. Began practicing qigong for health reasons and experience taught me that it was a universe unto itself. It was the reason for me joining the wonderful TDB community and has led to a deeper understanding in many aspects.

Looks like a form of qigong to me :)

The 'Ten Mindful Movements' are apparently derived from Yoga and Tai Chi:

https://www.amazon.com/Mindful-Movements-Ten-Exercises-Well-Being/dp/1888375795/

 

The video reminded me of the Eight-form Moving Meditation introduced by the late Chan Master Sheng Yen in Taiwan.

 

 

There seems to be a long tradition of Chan and Zen masters introducing exercises for the benefit of their students, who spend long periods sitting. These appear to be adapted from warmup exercises, calisthenics and qigong.

@Shevek  Thank you for sharing the video...looks like the simple routines taught to me by a yoga cum holistic teacher seems to be related to the video you shared as well as this one:
