One of the main purposes of Qigong practice is to re-balance our body and stop it burning itself out. Qigong is the reason why at 43, I still train as hard as I did when I was 14. But how do we get the most benefit from our Qigong?
3 Keys To Unlocking The Power Of Qigong
- Keep it Simple – The beauty of Qigong is its simplicity. At the Shaolin Temple, we don’t learn complex Qi theory, neither do we focus on one area of our body such as the Dan Tian. We just focus on our breath and movement together. We always learn The 8 Treasures Qigong form first. These precious teachings are passed down from the founder of Zen, Bodhidharma. He was a great master and didn’t gain anything from teaching these treasures. This gives us trust that what our teachers and ancestors have passed down to us is authentic.
- Practice Consistently – We’ve been given the key to optimal health but the only way to open the door is through consistent practice. Minimum, half an hour, four days a week.
