Taiji Qigong is a gentle, easy-to-learn system of energy-enhancing exercises that coordinate movement with mindful breathing and inner awareness, which, when practiced regularly, will give you more energy, improve health, and help prevent illness.

This book is designed to inform all levels and depths of practice. Regardless of whether you are completely new to the subject or are looking to enrich your current understanding, you will find a treasure trove of information from which to build a practice specific to your own goals, such as improving flexibility, cultivating mindfulness, or getting a better night’s sleep.

Part I provides a thorough grounding in the theory and practice of Qi and Qigong. Part II discusses the general principles of Qigong practice, clarifying common questions about how to practice (15 minutes a day is a good starting point; 30 minutes will provide a marked increase in vitality and serenity), how to achieve an optimum stance, and what breathing techniques should be used (natural breathing, abdominal breathing, and reverse abdominal breathing). Part III examines the 18 movements of Taiji Qigong with step-by-step illustrated instructions, detailed information on the benefits of each stance, additional technique tips, and insights into how movement flow can be enhanced through the power of the mind. At the back of the book is a handy reference chart for quick practice reminders. Practice the full 18 movements or simply pick and choose the ones you like best!
