Eight Energy Circle Walking

Classical Chinese physical arts for health and wellbeing

There are eight postures in this walking Qi Gong relate to the eight trigrams in Taoist philosophy, each holding a unique energy. The name Qigong is a relatively modern term, previously known as Daoyin from around 4-5000 years ago. The literal translation means "energy through work".

There are many health benefits of circle walking, from helping to balance emotions, connecting the upper and lower body, increase circulation, help create more energy and harmonise the activities of the brain and heart.

The external movements exercise the whole body, coiling and spiralling to help coordination and balance.  The internal movements help calm the mind, drop tension from the organs and open the energy channels.  Try each posture and experience the difference of each energy.
