Qi is an important element to all kind of disciplines among Chinese cultures. In term of the body condition, qi plays a very important role as well according to traditional Chinese medicine. If the body has no qi, it is but a corpse. If the qi is not strong, the body is in a fragile condition, the immunity is weak and one is vulnerable. Therefore, the best method to have a healthy body is to accumulate more qi by qigong exercise. In this series, all classes and instructions are center on qi accumulation with clear, detail information and step by step instruction for the novel students in mind.
