Hey, people! Here’s a great qi gong warm up exercise that can be done as a practice all by itself. This has numerous benefits: 1. It gets your blood flowing. 2. It helps with lymphatic drainage. 3. It gives your energy. 4. It improves circulation to the extremities. It can be done before the main qi gong form, as a stand alone practice or as a break in the middle of your day. It takes about 5 minutes.
This is an excellent exercise for ending your qi gong practice. These exercises will improve the health and vitality of your hair and nails. They also work on all the organ systems by stimulating points on the channels of the body that are found on your face, scalp and neck. This can also be done as a stand alone practice for healthy, radiant skin on your face and healthier hair.
Here’s a terrific qi gong exercise I learned from a medical qi gong teacher named Merle Morgan-Drennan. She is a student of master Hong Liu who taught her this form. His life story can be found in the book, The Healing Art of Qi Gong. It’s a great read. As the name implies this form has 8 parts. Each exercise has specific benefits which are mentioned in the video. Enjoy!
