少林八式 SHAOLIN BASHI
Shaolin Eight Movement Qigong
The legendary Shaolin eight-movement qigong was created and passed down by the founder of Chan (Zen) Buddhism, Bodhidharma.
Through its eight powerful movements, Shaolin Bashi works to harmonise both Yin and Yang Qi, strengthening the internal organs, external muscles, tendons and bones.
Ziran Qigong Shaolin Bashi
- Traditionally described as 养内壮外,内外合一 ‘nourishing the internal to strengthen the external, and harmonising both as one’, this practice enhances great internal power as your training progresses. Shaolin Bashi can improve the function of the cardiovascular, respiratory
and digestive systems. It is also said to balance moods and lessen anxiety and depression.
When the essence and qi are strong and full, the foundation for conversion to spirit is formed. Once achieved, the following benefits are also possible: clarity of thought, vigour, glowing health and radiant vitality; embodying the full expression of martial power, inner consciousness and intuition are awakened.
