Eight Simple Qigong Exercises For Health: The Eight Pieces of Brocade

I think the 8 Pieces of Brocade is a great form for everyone to learn, because it is super easy to learn and offers some great benefits. It is so short that this Qi Gong form can be practiced even if you only have 5 minutes to spare. I especially like the seated version he teaches, which is rarely taught.

Perfect for beginners! In this bestselling video, Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming instructs and demonstrates the most popular set of Chinese healing exercises, the Eight Brocades. These gentle breathing, stretching and strengthening movements activate the Qi energy and blood circulation in your body, helping to stimulate your immune system, strengthen your internal organs, and give you abundant energy.
