Qi Gong exercise
« on: April 16, 2007, 05:34:24 PM »
The Circle of Qi
This exercise is part of a routine to help circulate Qi throughout the body, replenish depleted Qi and calm the Shen.

Sit on the floor with legs crossed in lotus or cross-legged style. This is important so that Qi does not stagnate in the lower body, but follows the breathing path through the torso and the head.
Inhale to a count of four to eight, depending on what you are comfortable with.
For Buddha’s Breath, inhale, extending your belly as you fill it up with air from the bottom of your lungs upward; exhale by pushing the air out from the bottom of your lungs first, contracting the lower rib cage and abdominal muscles, then the upper torso.
For Taoist’s Breath, inhale, contracting your abdomen, exhale letting your abdomen relax outward. You may practice these breathing techniques on alternate days.
As you inhale imagine the air — and your Qi — flowing evenly along the pathways of the Channels.
Become aware of the air as it enters through your nostrils and moves down the center of your chest to a spot in your abdomen about 1 to 2 inches below the navel. This is the dan-tien. (Women should not concentrate on it during their periods. Concentrate on the solar plexus, instead.)
Now breath out slowly and evenly, releasing the breath from the abdomen, up through the lungs and out your slightly open mouth.
As you exhale image that the Qi which was at the dan-tien is moving down through your pelvis, through your crotch and then up your tailbone to your lower back.
Keep your exhaling breath in a slow, steady, smooth stream passing gently over your lips.
Now as you inhale again, follow the Qi as it moves up along your back to your shoulders.
Exhale and move the Qi up the back of the head, over the top of your head, down your forehead, returning to the nose.
At first it may be difficult to follow the flow of Qi through its cycle. Be patient and keep your breathing calm and your mind relaxed while focusing on your inhale and exhale.
