Book Description

30 Sep 2011
Taiji Qigong is an easy-to-learn system of energy-enhancing exercises, which coordinates movement with breathing and inner concentration. If practiced regularly, it will give you more energy, improve health and help prevent illness. Taiji Qigong is widely practiced throughout the Far East and increasingly throughout the Western world. Research indicates that Qigong relaxes the muscles and nervous system (so improving the function of the body systems) and benefits posture, balance and flexibility of joints. This book acts as an in-depth instruction manual for the practice of the 18 Stances of Taiji Qigong (Taiji Qigong Shibashi), which is widely practiced throughout the Far East and increasingly throughout the Western world. Many of the exercises are loosely based on the movements and stances of Taiji Quan. Broken into 3 parts, the book covers: the theory and practice of Qi and Qigong; the general principles of Qigong practice, and the 18 Movements of Taiji Qigong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unusually clear and straightforward. 7 May 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book gave me a deep insight into Qigong theory and practice; beyond that found in most other books. The illustrations are clear and straightforward. the text is descriptive without being burdoned by unnecessary jargon. All technical terms are explained fully. Hence, I suspect this book will be of use to beginners and exponents alike.

As a practitioner of daoist meditation and qigong, I found this book by far the most well laid out and comprehensive text on the subject. Not so complex as to lose the reader, but a perfect balance between practical advice and theoretical background. Great stuff.

Format:Paperback
Taiji Qigong by Chris Jarmey has really had an impact on me. For the first time here is a book which really explains how to do Taiji Qigong, with no ambiguity. Clearly destined to become the benchmark.
