These exercises are so easy you don’t even have to get out of bed to do them. In fact, Dr. Yang designed these exercises for your bed!
The Meridian Qigong – Combined Qigong, Yoga & Acupressure (YMAA) by Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming three-hour DVD features mostly 38 exercises. Dr. Yang combined these exercises from qigong movements, yoga stretches, and acupressure techniques.
In one section, he both explains the theory behind the exercises and demonstrates the move. Then, he does another section in which you follow along with him.
It’s perfect for the DVD player in your bedroom. Just pop this sucker in, and you’re good to go.
Dr. Yang also provides a great overview of general concepts – including qigong, the five regulatings, the network of qi vessels and meridians, and the theory behind 12-meridian qigong and yoga.
YMAA lists this at an intermediate skill level, but I believe Dr. Yang provides enough information here even for beginners. I certainly don’t pretend to have any expertise in qigong, and this DVD was helpful in explaining some concepts that have been otherwise fuzzy to me.
Full disclosure: I received a free review copy of this DVD.
