Taiji Qigong is an easy-to-learn system of energy-enhancing exercises which co-ordinates movement with breathing and inner concentration. If practiced regularly, it will give you more energy, improve health and help prevent illness. Taiji Qigong is widely practiced throughout the Far East and increasingly throughout the Western world. Research indicates that Qigong relaxes the muscles and nervous system (so improving the function of other body systems) and benefits posture, balance and flexibility of joints. This book acts as an in-depth instruction manual for the practice of the 18 Stances of Taiji Qigong. The book is written with all levels and depths of practice in mind, and is constructed so that you can take from it the necessary information and techniques to suite your own individual goals. The book is broken into three parts and covers the theory of Qi and Qigong; the general principles of Qigong practice; and the 18 movements of Taiji Qigong in detail.
