Thanks for finding this. I have been looking for some movements I can use with the chair yoga
class I teach. I think this will help a lot.

Lovely! Thanks for posting this! I twisted my knee yesterday and was bummed that I wasn't really going to be able to do a good yoga routine today (on day 20 of the 21-day challenge!) so I did this instead. I'm not proficient enough to get to feel the qi in my hands ;-) But it was very calming and still a wonderful way to work on breath and focusing the mind! I'm planning to try to do this on lunch breaks at work this week.

First thanks for the article which addresses the issue from the Western perspective and so makes it easy to share with a skeptical public.
I know yoga makes a difference in my life, but I that as yoga practices varies from one practitioner to another, the choice of healing modalities may vary as well in their efficacy.

Hmm, any ideas on how to know if you're getting a "good" teacher? I mean, I know everyone has a different fit with a teacher that they'll click with - but knowing you're getting an authentic experience, and not a wanna-be?

It's real. I don't practice but a friend does, she looked into it when she found out her ND teaches a class that is a specific style to help cancer survivors. I know there are different styles just like in yoga and is another ancient style of discipline. It's not known well outside of Asia but slowly is getting to be known here.

I have only dabbled a little bit into qigong. My good friend who in earlier years was a serious dancer and has been a body/movement type therapist for many years now, practices qigong regularly and deeply. Probably like many things and definitely like yoga, one's teachers and guides make all the difference in the experience. I know of many who are firm believers in this practice. I used qigong when my health was extremely fragile. It felt good.

Has anyone else heard of/practiced Qigong? I'm interested in learning more about it if it's legitimate!
