Poetic Qigong. Autumn... the season for reflection on the cycles of nature and the contraction that comes after expansion. As we slow down our rhythm, we are grateful for the treasures of wisdom and strength that we gathered in summer; we now welcome the heavy grey clouds and the chilly winds that mark the debut of the rainy season, so that we can appreciate even more the warm rays of sunshine when they pierce through.
Qigong (Chi Kung) can be defined as "life force cultivation" or energy technique. Shibashi (translated: 18 Forms) is a modern qigong based on elements of Yang style Tai Chi. It was created in 1982 by medical experts from the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Shanghai. If you are looking for a daily routine to perform for health and relaxation, that's it! This form is performed by millions of people throughout Australasia and is considered the national health exercise in several countries of the region.
This is a full form presentation, easy to follow through by beginners. Performed by Dan Stefan. Subtitles: English / Româna
