Beginning with Balancing Gong 平衡功
Back in 1992, we have a demonstration in Manchester. I knew that afterwards I would be teaching a simple introduction to Qigong. I realised I could not teach Wild Goose Qigong, as it is very complicated and takes a lot of time to pick up. So I created three exercises. These were Big Bear Stretches巨熊伸腰, Roc Extends大鵬展 its Wings and Supporting the Sky 托天雙舉. Later I created more exercises to make 9 stationary exercises and 2 waking exercises and these are what make up Balancing Gong.
In 1995 I wrote the book, Qigong for Health and Vitality. In this book I introduced Balancing Gong to everyone. Then in 2012 I rewrote the descriptions and put them on the book Balancing Gong, together with our level I warm up exercises. This is to help all beginners who are learning Balancing Gong to understand the concepts of Qigong. Throughout my life I have introduced Qigong and pointed out that it is for good health. This is the most important thing as without good health, no matter what style of Qigong or how long you have been studying, it has no meaning.
So in order to have good health Balancing Gong teaches the basic movements and relaxation and how to relate then all to the Dantian.
