Excellent book.

Although the movements are simple, there is a lot to them and it does require a lot of practise and study. I have had the book about 1 month and feel that i now have the first movement down accurately. So for me , at my practise rate it will take me about 6 months to progress to the whole form.

That said, you can feel it working almost immediately.

The instructions are laid out really well and the method used to learn the steps has clearly been well thought out and tested to exhaustion. Basically you learn small components at a time, and then put them all together to make the whole movement. The system is forgiving enough that you dont need to do each move perfectly to gain benefit

I would recomend this book to anyone interested in Chikung. Once the set is learned you will have a skill for life which you will always be able to call upon and use.

Seeing is believing?

Well, how about trying it and see?

I sent for this nearly two years ago, directly from the States and, even though it cost me something like three times the price you'll be paying, it was money well spent.

It has to be the the most comprehensively explained Qi Gong set available, full of stuff you might wish your Tai Chi teacher(s) had explained. Once you've learned the moves, it really is quite easy. It definately helps with chi awareness, not to mention, body awareness.

My personal tip would be: do it slowly. I found it better that way.

Finally, I would mention that you can access demonstrations of Dragon and Tiger on Taichimaster[], Bruce Frantzis' webpage.

Enjoy.

Format: Paperback
This book was a weird one. The introductory text was just wonderful but it didn't really match up well with the practical sections.

The author gave great explanations of Qigong and his own life experiences with it. He seemed to really understand the need for some of us battling illness to take it really slow and easy and not to push ourselves to more than 70% of our capacity. He also talked about the need to do some of the exercises lying down if you were seriously ill. This made me really excited, as what he was saying seemed to be just what I needed. After I had read the introduction I was really looking forward to getting started.

I have a disease with some similarities to M.S. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, or M.E.) I'm housebound and 98% bedbound and so I really hoped this book might give some instructions on how to do Qigong lying down or some up to 5 minute simple and gentle standing ones - seeing as how the author had said how important not overexerting was.

But sadly with the exception of maybe a breathing exercise at the start, all there were were exercises that you needed to do standing and which also required far FAR FAR more balance, flexibility, strength and physical and mental stamina and ability than I have. Despite the opening text going on and on about how the author understood physical limitations and the need to lie down to do some exercises to start with, the exercises all seemed to be aimed at elite athletes or professional dancers.

I got 4 very well reviewed books on Qigong out from my local library and read them all over a two week period:

1. Qigong illustrated
2. Heal yourself with qigong : gentle practices to increase energy, restore health, and relax the mind
3.

I ordered the DVD of this and the book has proved very helpful in refining the movements and finding out how they help and helpful tips on breathing etc
Feel great for the day after performing these 7 simple exercises and I notice when I haven't done them
