Product description

Review

In this well-illustrated, succinct, and easy to read manual, these qigong exercises are described in clear language and simple step-by-step pictures of each form are provided in the proper sequences... You will not go wrong by adding this and the other books in these series to your martial arts or qigong library, and you will be pleasantly surprised in all that you will learn from doing so. --Journal of Asian Martial Arts

Taken together, and done properly, the movements described here comprise a system of exercise that emphasizes grace and strength. Each focuses on a different part of the body to coordinate breathing patterns with movement; each exercise is easy to do and quiets the mind as well as stabilizes the body. Includes full illustrations, instructions and explanations, including the important reasons why these exercises should be conducted together rather than "cafeteria style." Safe for all age groups and very useful to those who practice Tai Chi and martial arts. --Booknews.com

With these books the Chinese Health Qigong Association have come close to providing everyone with their own personal qiqong instructor. --Tai Chi Finder Limited
