14-Series Sinew-Transforming Exercises by Chang Weizhen

£16.99

Product description

Qigong (meaning literally internal energy exercises) is a general term for many different forms of meditational and therapeutic exercises, popular in China since ancient times. The Sinew-Transforming Exercises, a literal translation from the Chinese name Yijin Jing, are a traditional form of such Qigong exercises for overcoming disease and prolonging life of very ancient origin.

Characterized by graceful movements just like those of Taiji Quan and Shaolin Quan which are better known to the outside world, the Sinew-Transforming Exercises have a style as robust as Shaolin and yet as supple as Taiji. They differ from modern free exercises in that they integrate the exercise of the body and extremities with a conscious control of movement by the mind.

This traditional form of physical culture has since ancient times been popular among the Chinese and become a precious heritage of China's ancient civilization. Chang Weizhen, author of the book, is himself a master of Qigong exercises.

A good copy with some bumps to corners and a little peeling of the protective plastic film, neither of which affect the reading.
