Qigong exercise for Beginners! Master Yang instructs and demonstrates "The Standing Eight Pieces of Brocade", the most popular set of beginner-friendly Qigong healing exercises. This includes 30 minutes of follow-along exercise and then 30 minutes of detailed explanation of how and why the exercises work. These gentle breathing, stretching and strengthening movements improve the Qi (energy) and blood circulation in your body, stimulate your immune system and make you feel great.
Known in China as the Ba Duan Jin (健身八段錦), The Eight Pieces of Brocade has been practiced for over 1,000 years. Also included are the 'secret words' - poems that have preserved each exercise, which contain the key to each of these ancient medical qigong movements
After you practice along with the easy-to-follow movements, you'll enjoy a fascinating qigong lecture by Master Yang.
The videos are organized into three main sections:
1. "Analysis" - A short demonstration of each qigong exercise with instructional voiceover to introduce each exercise
2. "Demonstration" - A follow-along continuous demonstration section in which Dr. Yang performs each piece with multiple repetitions
3. "Lecture" - A one-on-one class in which Dr. Yang instructs each exercise with more detail and qigong theory
Once you have learned the qigong exercises from the "Analysis and "Lecture" sections, you may simply follow along with Dr. Yang using the the continuous "Demonstration" video.
The standing eight brocades qigong set includes exercises to calm the mind, stretch your body, strengthen the teeth, improve digestion, heal the internal organs, boost your immunity and much more.
Each piece of the Brocades should be practiced by beginners 6 - 8 times to start. When you begin, only perform each exercise for the number of repetitions that feels comfortable. As your health improves, you may increase the number of repetitions up to 12, 24 or even 32 times. Don't skip any of the exercises or practice out of order.
This app gives you sample videos and offers an opportunity to get the full standing qigong video at the lowest possible cost. Now you can practice Master Yang's popular qigong exercises using your phone or tablet. This is a convenient training tool you can bring anywhere, to access this amazingly powerful exercise whenever it fits best into your day.
Whether you are a beginner or a qigong master already, these amazing exercises offer the perfect combination of relaxation and full-body stretching exercise. You'll enjoy reduced stress, a stronger immune system and a deeper awareness of your mind, body and spirit. You will develop important skills for immediate stress-relief to relieve anxiety and/or post-traumatic stress disorder or just relax, rejuvenate and maintain a healthy baseline of a calm and balanced mind and nervous system.
Qi-Gong means "energy-work". Qigong (chi kung) is the ancient art of building the body's Qi (energy) to a higher level and circulating it throughout the body for rejuvenation and health. Some Qigong is practiced sitting or standing still, while other Qigong can be a kind of moving meditation. This gentle stretching Qigong exercise is a highly effective way to enhance healing, raise up your spirit and generally improve your quality of life.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a perfect app to complement Dr. Yang’s book “Simple Qigong.” I found the lectures in the app on each piece of brocade the most helpful. The section with the continuous demonstration of all eight pieces was also quite helpful.
We have been taking classes for over a month, which are wonderful. But, the Dr Jwing-Ming's explanations of why the movements are done and what the goals of the movements are, are fantastic. Only one part of Qigong exercises, but very important ones. A super app. Just get it.
Perfect for Learning Qigong Exercises
What a great way to learn qigong exercises. These standing exercises are not difficult at all. Easy program to follow for effective exercises with less than 20 minutes a day. Nice!
