Early-stage Qigong practitioners often find it difficult to establish a daily Qigong practice. This useful handbook teaches simple Qigong exercises that can be easily practiced in the home every day. The book provides guidance for a series of warm-ups and exercises which are easy to learn, very effective and all based on ancient practice. These include refreshing Early Morning Meditations; the classic Eight-Sectioned Brocade; the dynamic Three Circles Posture; the Nine Aggrievement Exercises, which are great for combating bad moods; and the Three Lowerings, an exercise for sound sleep. The author offers advice throughout on important points to remember when practicing Qigong at home and how to deal with any problems that arise in a straightforward and relaxed way. Suitable for young and old, this is the perfect introduction to classic Qigong. The meditations and exercises will be particularly healing for those recovering from illness.
