Simple Qigong Exercises for Health and Vitality: The Eight Pieces of Brocade

Strengthen, Energize and Support Robust Health – From the Inside Out!

Qigong (“Chee Kung”) is an ancient form of energy exercise which combines breathing, specific movement patterns, and visualization in a powerful practice that helps you transform stress, center yourself, and improve your health and internal energy. This course introduces you to the Eight Pieces of Brocade, or Ba Duan Jin, Qigong form.

The Eight Pieces of Brocade is a well-known and highly regarded Qi Gong form. Legend has it that Chinese General Yueh Fei developed these exercises in the 12th century to help condition and strengthen his troops. As we discuss in Video 1, this may not be the full story, and exercises within the form are actually a lot older. This form provides a wonderful health practice that stretches and strengthens us physically, uses our movement to induce qi flow, and targets important meridians to support health.

In this course, we will go deep into the movement AND the breathing and energetics of each exercise so you can more fully integrate your Qigong exercises into a powerful health practice. Karen bypasses all the “woo woo” stuff and focuses on the foundational elements of a successful practice, so you can reap the benefits from your first day of learning.

The course is offered in nine weekly installments, affording you detailed instruction and adequate time to learn and perform the exercises. By the conclusion of the nine weeks, you will have learned:

  • Week 1: Two Hands Hold Up the Heavens  
  • Week 2: Drawing the Bow (left and right side)
  • Week 3: Separate Heaven and Earth
  • Week 4: Wise Owl Turns Head
  • Week 5: Sway Head and Shake Tail
  • Week 6: Two Hands Press Up, Hold Feet
  • Week 7: Screw the Fists with Fiery Eyes
  • Week 8: Press Up On Toes
  • Week 9: Finishing Exercise and Integrating Your Practice
  • Time investment: only 15 minutes per day provides significant benefits.

Our goal is to introduce you to a proven health and energy cultivation method impacting body, mind, and spirit, which hopefully becomes an ongoing, consistent practice you will enjoy and benefit from.
