Other Qigong practised in our club

Shibashi – 18 Taiji Qigong sets: in 1979 Lin Housheng combined elements of qigong and simplified Yang style tai chi to create his first set of eighteen movements, also know as Shibashi (Shibashi means 18 movements in Chinese). The second set was created in 1988, based with elements inspired from Chen style tai chi and tai chi sword. Other sets were later created in the 1990’s and in the new century.

‘Winter Brocade’ with Richard Bertschinger

A simple Qigong practice to strengthen and renew vitality during cold days. In this new video version Richard has added tapping the body after drawing the bow, jumping into horse stance and making sounds when looking over the shoulder which he did not originally do when first teaching it, so don’t feel you need to add this in your practice.

“Aromatic Qigong”

In 1988 an unusual form of Qigong, called “Aromatic or Fragrant Qigong”, kept secret by monks for centuries, began to be taught openly in China by Tian Ruisheng who was cured by it’s practice. Due to its simplicity and incredible healing effects, it very quickly spread all over China.
