Understanding Qigong DVD 1—What is Qigong? & The Human Qi Circulatory System
The Chinese word Qigong (chee • kung) means 'energy work'. Qigong is the ancient art of using the mind to naturally develop the body's Qi (energy) for improved health and longevity. Some Qigong is practiced sitting or standing still, while other Qigong can be a kind of moving meditation.
As millions of people worldwide are turning to Chinese medicine and healing practices such as Qigong and Tai Chi, it is important to understand what Qigong is and how it works. In these two video courses, renowned Qigong expert and author Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming explains the concepts of Qigong and the human energetic circulatory system. Dr. Yang's systematic approach to teaching offers deep insight into the subject of Qigong with modern scientific data to support his theory from both an Eastern and Western perspective.
Drawing on his 35 years of training in Qigong and his Western scientific background in Physics and Mechanical Engineering, Dr. Yang presents a clear and fascinating explanation of his Qigong theory, and offers a simple Qigong exercise for students to begin experiencing their Qi. This program is a must for Qigong practitioners, acupuncturists, energy healers, and anyone interested in understanding exactly of how and why Qigong works.

Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming is truly one of the most gifted martial artists to-date and his depth of knowledge concerning martial arts is second to none. The principles discussed here are highly advanced and merely referring to Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming as a martial artist is limiting as he is a man of science and highly educated, as you'll see him relate Chi to electrical engineering principles and other deep concepts. Just to add, all of his videos show an enormous attention to detail so anything produced by him on DVD is always of the highest quality and recommended.Like Haing Your Tai Chi Teacher in your Back Pocket, Gregory T. Candy (Amazon reviewer) July, 2000
A clear and scholarly presentation of the all different aspects of qigong. I appreciate the fact that Dr. Yang is both a high level practitioner of this art and also a hard core scientist. Highly recommended!
