    Our two-story house is built on a concrete slab. Is it true that one should not practice directly over concrete?



    I work in the basement too and have carpet with and plastic air barrier, and wonder about this set up too. Thanks.



    Hi Holly and Mary Ann,

    Bruce says that practicing on a concrete floor isn’t the best, because the concrete will pull energy out of you. So it’s best not to stand directly on the concrete. Anything you can put between you and the concrete will help. For example, a wood floor works well.

    The nice thing about Dragon & Tiger is you don’t need a lot of room to do the movements. You are pretty much standing in one place. So you can put down something between you and the floor that covers just the space you need.

    Also, the bottom line is it’s better to practice on a concrete floor than not to practice. It’s just a bit better to avoid contact directly with the concrete.




    Hi Biil,

    At first, I would like to say that I am enjoying the course very much. Here in my country (Brazil) it is not easy to find a so technical and clear explanation of any kind of qiqong on line.

    So, thank you very much for this.

    I am a little bit late in this course, and I am just begining Week 1. Is there any problem with it?

    Second, I have a question;

    I’ve beeng studying and practcing Tai Chi for the last six years and my teacher always told me to do energy practices with any kind of shoes, but never bare footed. However, you suggest other way and this causes me some kind of confusion. I know some kind of floor can pull energy from us.

    Could you please explain it better to me?

    Once more, thank you!!!!
