How Many Times a Day Should We Practise – Part 2
We can also practise three times a day. To be able to do this means that our work allows us to be in control of our time. The times to practise are morning, evening and sunset.
When we wake up, we should practise for half an hour in the morning. Then when we come home after work, we can practise for another half an hour and then we can do another half an hour before bed. This makes a total of one and a half hours. If we can practise our Qìgōng 氣功 following this schedule for one year, our level of Qìgōng will be very good, and we will want to keep practising for the rest of our lives. This is because we feel so good after practise, and we do not want to feel bad or ill. However, if we want to practise three time a day, but do not have as much time in the morning or at sunset, then we can do just 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes at sunset. We should still start with a warm up and then choose three to five forms, from more dynamic, like Chùn Yuén Quán 俊元拳, Tàijíquán 太極拳, to gentler Qìgōng forms and then finish with one to two minutes of Horse Stance to end. Then in the evening, we can practise for an hour and we should do the forms that we did not do in the morning or at sunset. Of course, we can swap when we the long practise to the morning, sunset or the evening.
