12-Routine Sitting Exercises
by Chinese Health Qigong Association
Suitable for experienced qigong practitioners as well as beginners, and for all ages and abilities, including people with mobility restrictions, this set of movements involves systematic exercises of the head, neck, shoulders, back, waist, arms, legs, chest and abdomen. Its graceful movements and smooth transitions are safe, reliable and easy to learn. The book provides step-by-step, fully-illustrated instruction on the exercises, together with detailed learning tips and information about the health benefits of each movement, and includes a brief account of the origins of the movements and guidance for practice. An accompanying DVD features a video demonstrating the form and additional information on its history and origins, and a CD provides options for verbal instructions to lead the practitioner through the exercises, or music to accompany them.
This simple and accessible regime is perfect for anyone wishing to learn the potent traditional forms, and for teachers looking for effective exercises to teach both individually and in groups, including children, people with disabilities and older people.
