The exercises of qigong were carefully designed and refined over hundreds of years to counter the effects of age while creating a surplus of energy in the body. Physical and psychological health and spiritual growth are the benefits.

The tension related to physical and psychological problems and many conditions of ill health may also improve or be completely cured with the accumulation of inner eneregy. There are many styles of qigong associated with taiji training.

My course incorporates the eight pieces of brocade, the eighteen taiji/qigong shibashi, various BaGua and Wudang exercises as an adjunct to the tai chi training sessions. Qigong classes offer an opportunity to experience this ancient and holistic method of improving health and energy, equipping each learner with the basic skills for continued study.

Qigong has at its primary aim the cultivation of the qi (or chi) and has evolved into a set of soft slow movements co-ordinated with the concentration of the mind and breath.

Taiji is a refined method of qigong. Developed over hundreds of years, it is continuous, flowing and brings relaxation, health, meditation and inner harmony as the elements of well-being. Students wishing to continue training only qigong are encouraged to look at dedicated qigong schools.

Healing the body and mind through qigong exercises is thousands of years old.

Through healthy breathing (both natural and reversed), Dan Tien breathing, relaxation and sinking (Fang Song Gong), opening and closing of joints, meditation (including the Great Heavenly Circulation or Macrocosmic Orbit) qi is directed up and down through the body's meridians to remove blockages).

Qigong is known to rid the mind of mental cobwebs and clear meridians. Alternate nostril breathing, Microcosmic meditation (Xiao Zhou Tian or the Small Heavenly Circulation) help the body, mind and spirit in a more balanced, centred calm and healthy disposition.

Qigong exercises and methods of training assist in healing internal organs (lungs, liver, kidneys, heart, spleen and triple burner) and have been proven successful in curing cancers through visualising the light energy passing through the diseased organs.

Qigong is said to be an ‘inner alchemy’ where qi circulates through the opened joints to transform and heal tired, locked, or damaged joints and re-align the whole body.

As one part of the body changes, so does the whole.
Advanced stages of qigong methods, both active and passive, involve leading the body by using the mind to direct qi.

When both body and mind are relaxed, clarity and peace are experienced.
Relaxation is achieved through the tensing and relaxing via the myriad of qigong exercises.

‘Heal Thyself,’ begins with reading a qigong book, finding a teacher whose practice resonates, or just practising some of the fantastic exercises from the various qigong schools and qigong methods that exist

Qi or chi refinement The method and principles relating to the refinement of qi differ from person to person, with a variety of training exercises designed to suit personal life situations Qi is life energy which flows through all living things as well as nature. Gong is the work you put in.

Dynamic qigong is exercise and is the most practiced method, passive qigong is tranquil and includes meditation, visualisation and precise breathing methods. Here the focus is on a clear and tranquil state of no-mind wih a deeper connection and harmony with nature. Qi training may include a wide range of exercises designed to boost or increase energy flow, regenerate, repair and rejuvenate bad, negetive, lost or dissipated energy. Here the emphasis is on connection to the dao, to harmonise with nature and gain a clearer understanding of the universal qi. There are at least 7 major sources of qi:-

breath qi (respiration); food qi (from your diet);original qi (inherited from parents); internal qi (emanates inside the body); external qi (qi emanating from outside the body); nutritive qi (flowing through the meridians); and protective qi (energy barrier against external pernicious influences and pathogens. Qi or chi energy circulation. Breathing, shaking, meditation, joint alignment, pressure, muscle changes, heat, light, love all contribute towards inner spiritual growth with an increase of energy resulting, a heightened sense of awareness with more focus on the here and now. Anger, resentment, fear, pain are alchemically transformed using the body-mind, mind-body, deep-mind, celestial, astral and etheric planes which govern most of who we are and who we think we are. These are three methods of building the body's energy field:-

a) Through deep breathing methods b) By moving the mind through the body using a deep intention. c) By increasing the blood and lymphatic fluid circulation through the gentle pressure changes created by the the contant lifting and sinking of the body with it's gentle movements. Qi / Chi movement

Taiji is an advanced method of qi movement however there are also wudang and shaolin (north and south qigong) styles, some harder to practice than others. Different training exercises are implemeted to allow for imparting the fastest and most efficient method in the shortest possible time thereby allowing for each persons own practice routine to guide and determine the result.
Inner listening is a vital aspect to the training. There are interesting methods designed to create a meditative and quiet approach to 'mind' and a control of one's emotions - A state of 'no mind' or emptiness which allows deep internal processes to occur. Inner listening is a vital aspect to this method of training.

While in "theory" practicing martial arts of whatever 'style' is meant to:

- path the way to a heightened state of awareness - produce a calm approach to life, a philosophical and spiritual introspection - a reduction of ego related distractions - a way free of body/mind earthly appetites

This is not always the case and many side affects may occur if incorrectly instructed- distress, (unbalanced emotions, ego, feeling of misguided power may result). Nothing is guaranteed without patience, persistence and constant practice of meditation, a pure heart and struggle with ego related distractions.

A state of remembering is important - what the sufis refer to as Zikr.

The effect of lifetime training especially where guided by an experienced teacher can open the doors of perception to an inner reality.

Listening to subtle body, muscle, pressure, joint and pain sensations, the student is guided constantly within to a point where mind stops and oneness with existence is deeply experienced.

To experience stillness during activity is a heightened state of awareness which trains us to be still even in the most extreme situations.
