I know many people -- maybe even you -- who want to do their Qi Gong exercises daily. But there are many reasons why that is not happening. Many (especially beginners) simply do not remember the moves from the class.
Well, you can just start with what you remember or you can try one of the Qi Gong videos I found for you. They take only about 5 minutes each! (You’ll find another list with 10 minutes Qi Gong videos here)
I selected them so you can start right away. No further introduction needed, no special equipment. Just get up, get some space around you and enjoy the Qi Gong videos! NOW!
Start with a small warm up video with rotations for the head, shoulders, hips, and knees:
And her “Golden Ball” Qi Gong exercise video intrigues me. I find it hard to match my own breathing pattern to it, but I enjoy it though:
If you liked the woman in these videos, check out her playlist with more Qi Gong exercises.
This next session is actually only 4 minutes long, but easy to follow. It is good Qi Gong for beginners.
Here is a great Qi Gong exercise for the morning. It is easy to do and easy to remember, so you won’t need to have to look at your screen all the time!
These exercises you could even do at the office (close your door, though). It is a bit bizarre, but I enjoyed it:
For this Qi Gong video you can even remain seated! I think there are actually more videos from this teacher, maybe a DVD if you prefer that. And even if you are an absolute Qi Gong beginner, you can surely do this:
This Qi Gong set of cloud hands can be done seated, too:
This is a video with easy Qi Gong exercises for the spine. He presents more than one exercise, so if you have more time you might want to stop, repeat that one exercise and then hit play for the next exercise etc.
This is another Qi Gong move for the spine (be careful though, because it involves bending to the front:
And if you like that last video, check out their other videos!
Within the next video, there is no introduction or explanation, unfortunately. But if you have a little bit experience in Qi Gong, you can surely follow this exercise. You will soon memorize it and might even continue after the video is over!
Now another video with no further information -- it is definitely for the more advanced Qi Gong people. However, I really like to follow that routine. I mean, that’s really the problem about doing Qi Gong from a video: sometimes you simply don’t know what you’re doing there. But somehow this set intrigues me and I like to practice it. Maybe one day I will learn more about it.
Can there be a list ofQi Gong videos without a Chinese man clad in a silk suit? Surely not! So if you are interested in Chen Style Tai Chi, enjoy a little bit of Silk Reeling:
I hope you had a wonderful time while you practiced Qi Gong at least for some minutes! If you happen to have 10 more minutes, check out the list of 10 minutes Qi Gong videos.
And the next time you get to your class: just take a piece of paper with you. Try to remember that one Qi Gong exercise that you really like. Ask your teacher for the name of it and after the class talk to him about that exercise. Then try it at home until you know how to do it!
Note: I am not a doctor. So if you have any health issues, go see your doctor. Qi Gong exercises (from Qi Gong videos) are usually harmless when done correctly, still they can be very effective. Just make sure to never go past the point of pain and take care of your health.
