Dr. Shen's Tai Chi Chi Kung
This is a wonderful video. If you are a Tai Chi
practitioner you will not only recognize the slow,
circular movements, but you will learn the energy
principles that lie behind Tai Chi forms you practice.
If you are looking to improve your health, this
video is also for you.
You will learn a twelve movement set of Tai Chi
Kung. For those with physical limitations, it
can also be practiced seated or lying down. Also
explained on the video is chi circulation –
how it is guided by your mind and path taken in
each move of the exercise set – a process
that will balance, regulate and stimulate your
underlying energy system. You will experience
a profound sense of tranquility and spiritual
peace – a process that releases tension
and anxiety accumulated in the joints and musculature
of the body.
The great insight of Traditional Chinese Medicine
(TCM) is that on a deeper level, energy underlies
all body processes and systems. And just as your
outer muscles can be stimulated by physical exercise,
internal Chi Kung exercise can stimulate and improve
your internal health.
Chi Kung (also spelled Qigong) means “energy
work” -- Chi meaning energy or breathe while
Kung is translated as discipline or work. This
exercise set focuses on the body’s extra
meridians, or energy pathways. These pathways
are understood to act as energy reservoirs --
sending, storing and absorbing energies from the
body’s other organ pathways of energy, which
can stimulate health and regulate energy. The
effects are profound. The whole body becomes more
relaxed and supple, more flexible as well as strong
while balance is improved.
