The Ba Duan Jin (“Eight pieces of brocade”) is a Taoist medical qigong set of eight therapeutic practices that dates back over 1,000 years and offers great health benefits. Over the centuries, many have experienced its numerous benefits, and it is one of the most famous of all qigong forms. Ba Duan Jin increases strength and flexibility, improves posture, and can benefit the respiratory, circulatory, nervous, digestive, and lymphatic systems. There are several variations of each exercise that combine gentle movements with breath coordination. The practices are simple to learn, and easily modified for people of varying fitness levels, and one begins to feel profound benefits after only a few weeks of practice. You will feel energized, calm, and balanced after each session.
Note: Wear comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement and flat-soled shoes.
