Nei Yang Gong Qigong Foundation Level Exercise Routine

The Nei Yang Gong Qigong Foundation level is a short and easy to learn Qigong routine that is often used as a ‘warm up’ prior to the main Nei Yang Gong Qigong exercises.

As with all Nei Yang Gong Qigong exercises the focus is on soft, flowing and relaxed movement and breathing and the foundation level not only prepares the body and mind for the exercises to follow but can be used as a simple and easy to learn method of Qigong by itself.
