Anonymous More than 1 year ago
While, I think there is a little too much history for a health book, I thought this was a good introduction to Qigong.  Qigong I have heard from other people is very relaxing.    I liked the fact that the author tried to explain some of the concepts of Chinese Medicine.   I have taken a couple of classes in Tai Chi where they did not explain the theory behind chi (energy) and  I think it made the class confusing for Westerners.  Also these instructors did not explain the mind/body connection of these exercises. Unlike many exercise books, the exercise program the author presents seems very easy to do for busy people.   I did not have the DVD/Video so I will need to go online to see some of the exercises performed.     I am somewhat familiar with Yoga.   The exercises in Qigong (and Tai Chi) seem much gentler than Yoga.   Also they seem easier to incorporate into day to day life.   I once had a very dedicated Yoga teacher from India who spent two hours every day practicing yoga and  she said people there spent all day doing Yoga.   While I appreciate these people's dedication and believe  it might have very positive results in terms of health both physical and mental, it is hard for people to do in the USA. I wish the author better explained the connection between the different branches of Chinese Medicine/Practices such as  acupuncture, Tai Chi, and Kung Fu.  I received a free copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
