The Theory and Practice of Taiji Qigong, 3rd edition
Methods of Qigong are many, and the variations within these methods are endless. Even within Taiji Qigong Shibashi there are at least six different ‘styles’ that the author has come across; which means there must be even more.
Generally though, this method of Qigong, and its variations are practiced as a very simple, easy to learn system that is ideal for beginners. However, many people also use it as a serious core practice, or as an adjunct to yet deeper methods.
This book is constructed so that you can take from it the necessary information and techniques to suit your goals and acts as an in-depth instruction manual for the practice of the 18 stances of Taiji Qigong. The reader can use the book as either a basic Qigong health or as a well-being maintenance programme.
The late Chris Jarmey MCSP DS MRSS taught shiatsu, qigong, bodywork therapy and anatomy, and founded the European Shiatsu School. He was the author of many books on anatomy and bodywork, including The Concise Book of Muscles and Shiatsu—The Complete Guide.
