New Ziran Qigong Level 1 DVD available in the Shop
Ziran Qigong is a unique Chinese excercise system designed to exercise both the body, as well as prepare the mind, for day to day trials and stress.
Qigong draws on three main elements. It includes "Regulating the Body", through specific postures, self massage, and the movement of the limbs. "Regulating the Mind" through quiet relaxation and concentrations of one's mental activity; and "Regulating the Qi" by developing and strengthining the harmony between both mind and body.
