I have been practicing internal arts for almost 3 decades so I'm not a novice to Qi Gong exercise. Always open to exploring other Qi Gong systems, I bought Bruce's Dragon & Tiger books (both volumes) and put them to use learning the form. Looking to improve & check my form I enrolled in Bill Ryan's online course.I found this program to be well structured,with excellent content including many warm-ups,specific exercises to build each of the 7 movements fundamentals as well as important Qi Gong Principles.As a result, I have smoothed out and tweaked my performance of the set which has helped to release stubborn tension in my back & neck.
Bill has an easygoing videoland presence which really helps to encourage students along the path.I believe Dragon & Tiger Qi Gong is an excellent example of a simple yet sophisticated energy exercise. I wholeheartedly recommend taking this online course, it is of great benefit for the novice as well as experienced student alike! I will continue to circle around this course for years to come.
Finally, I want to give my thanks to Bruce Frantzis for bringing this piece of Qi Gong wisdom to the west and to Bill Ryan for assisting in spreading this knowledge.
This tai chi training was a tranformational experience, breaking through one's sense of expectations, releasing stagnant areas in the body, mind and spirit.
