The First Principle of Qigong

Try to Practice Everyday

The first principle of Qigong is regular practice. It might seem obvious that you need to practice, but I have found that practicing regularly is a rock in the path of health that most people stumble over. There is something about getting into a Qigong practice and sticking with it that most North Americanos seem to have difficulties with. I have heard from hundreds of people about this issue of not being able to keep up their practice. Maybe it is because everyone is so busy that one more activity seems overwhelming. Let me assure you that Qigong is worth the little extra time it takes, it is money in your healthiness bank.

Keep at it and You will Reap the Benefits

I have also heard from scores of people that once they re-began a practice after laying it aside for a while, they instantly noticed the difference in how they felt. By starting, stopping, then starting a regular practice again, the uptick in their energy levels and general health was obvious. I recall one lady who had had spinal fusion back surgery some years before. She told me that when she invested the time to practice 10 minutes of an exercise called Swimming Dragon each morning, her back didn’t hurt that day. If she skipped her Swimming Dragon session, her back hurt.

    I have only recently found Fun With Qigong, and in my opinion it is golden. I take qigong and tai chi classes, but the Bates approach is the best in my opinion. Your postings are absolutely chock full of helpful tidbits on the whole health and qigong arena. I just ordered your DVD. Thanks for being there.

    What a great resource for a beginner like me! I have been practicing for about 5 weeks, but I started feeling the benefits right away. Now the movements are more familiar to me and so the flows are becoming more natural and I can enter in to a more focused experience which is what it’s all about. I love that this stuff is free, I can take it anywhere, and it’s so amazingly beneficial! Bless you for sharing your experience with the rest of us.
