Qigong Video: Energy Gates

Opening the Energy Gates of Your Body Qigong develops the water element inside of you. It is composed of a series of six qigong exercises. The first one is standing and incorporates breathing and teaches a person how to become aware of the inside of their body. Through this a person learns the proper alignments so the chi is neither blocked nor dissapateed when doing a practice including other qigong sets or tai chi. You then learn another exercise called Cloud Hands which connects a person to the interior of their body so all the different parts of ourselves that are not integrated join the body into one connected whole. Through that you work the chi flows within that one connected flow.

The next qigong exercise in Energy Gates is a series of three swings. The first gets the flow of energy into the lower internal organs of the body. The next swing gets the energy and chi to the middle part of the body including the internal organs such as the kidneys, liver, heart and lungs. The final swing powerfully develops the ability to get energy up and down the body smoothly and fluidly. The last qigong exercise in Energy Gates shows a person the basic principles of working with the spine in Taoism through a spine stretch. This is particularily useful for anyone who has back problems and anyone wishing to develop a well functioning back. This exercise is also extremely useful in releasing the nervious tension that is the after effect of stress - the most common chronic condition of the age we live.

Opening the Energy Gates of the Body in terms of doing classic Taoist exercises is probably the best foundation program and entry point to learn qigong.
