How our qigong instructions are organised:-
We have lots of individual qigong exercise instructions. To make life easier we have split them into groups according to how they could be used in a qigong set.
Then we were asked if there was a single list of all the qigong exercises there is now!
So, this is simply an alphabetical list of the qigong exercise instructions with a tiny overview of what is involved.
We hope you find something you would like to try.

involves bending forward form waist and turning the neck to gaze over your shoulder - a good qigong back strengthening exercise and great for balance.
