Qi and Body Awareness: Week Four

Video 1: 4 Tips to Improve Our Qigong Practice

The Three Rules for Qigong were to study the physical movement, understand the internal application of each movement, and to apply the internal and external awareness to the practice. Now we further refine our Qigong practice by understanding some concepts that we may apply for developing flowing Qigong movement. This in turn promotes greater Qi flow.

Video 8: Shifting Left and Right / Waving Head & Tail

“Waving Head & Tail” and also “Looking at the Opposite Heel” practice are two of the “Eight Great Movements for Health”. “Looking at the Opposite Heel” practice strengthens the flow of Qi in our legs and feet and it also trains us to shift left and right in a way that we can protect our knees from damage. “Waving Head & Tail” practice is stated to have a powerful effect on the nervous system and the circulation of blood and Qi. It is said to help relieve heartburn, stimulate the power of the kidneys, and strengthens the eyeballs, the muscles of the neck, and the muscles of the shoulders. It is also said to be excellent for alleviating high blood pressure.
