Ch’i Kung (Qi Gong) is an ancient Chinese system of self-cultivation developed specifically for protecting health and promoting vitality, while heightening spiritual awareness and insight. It consists of a series of fluid movements coordinated with the breath to increase flow of energy throughout the body and the mind while standing, sitting or reclining.
The Ch’i Kung Track incorporates the following elements:
Eight Pieces of Brocade: The most widely practiced form of Ch’i Kung, to be performed sitting, standing, or in a chair. This gives overall stretch of the body and coordination of breath and movement.
22-set Ch’i Kung: A balanced set of warm-ups, standing meditation, movement exercise and reclining meditation created by Master Wang Sheng-Zhi, senior disciple of Great Grandmaster Wang Shu-Jin.
Five Animal Frolics: An ancient style of Ch’i Kung in which the movements of five animals (Crane, Bear, Monkey, Deer, and Tiger) are copied for their martial arts and therapeutic value. Crane and Bear have stationary and walking movements, and Monkey, Deer, and Tiger have walking movements.
Incense Ch’i Kung I: A set of 15 postures requiring simple upper body movement to be performed sitting or standing. Good for beginners and the elderly.
Incense Ch’i Kung II: A set of 15 postures requiring simple upper body movement with small hip movement. Movements are simple but generate tremendous amount of Ch’i (Qi). Prerequisite: Incense Ch’i Kung I.
15-set T’ai Chi Ch’i Kung: Developed by Master Li Tian-Ji in Beijing, China. Movements are based on T’ai Chi and require flowing movements coordinated with breath and intention.
