Below are some select heath benefits of the individual movements of various Qi Gong Sets & Exercises we use. These are merely some of the potential benefits of each posture/movement and there are others.

Of course depending on time etc one can pull only a few individual exercises from a set and perform them as your workout.

One imagines that they are standing at the edge of a beautiful Lake of tranquil water, with the sun shining warmly upon you, a nice gentle breeze in the air, and a gentle smile on your face.

It's encouraed you try to imagine this setting or another nice relaxing setting, such as the beach or mountains.
