A Guide to Spring Forest Qigong Active Exercises

Active Exercises form a crucial component of many courses at the Spring Forest Qigong Center. These exercises are not what you might think though. They are as helpful as any other exercises and can do amazing things for your mind and body, but they are so easy to perform and literally anyone can practice them. That’s what makes Active Exercises so special and in this article we’ll tell you why they are an essential part of your daily practice as a Spring Forest Qigong student.

What Are Active Exercises?

The term “Active Exercises” may conjure images of strenuous effort, profuse sweating, and overwhelming exhaustion. However, this perception is not aligned with Qigong practices.

Qigong, being inclusive to all, doesn’t require excessive physical stress. Regulating the body’s energy flow is the key to achieving optimal health, and this is the goal of Spring Forest Qigong.

Active Exercises, characterized by slow, methodical movements, are accessible to individuals of all ages and fitness levels. These exercises serve to regulate energy flow, contributing to balanced and freely flowing energies when integrated with SFQ meditations and techniques.

SFQ Fundamentals Active Exercises

One of the most popular courses at the Spring Forest Qigong Centre is SFQ Fundamentals. This has been taken by hundreds of thousands of people over the years and it was the first course that many experts took. This course includes many elements and is a complete practice in itself, with meditations, healing techniques and several active exercises.

These include a trio of exercises that are designed to be taken together, exercises that take just a few minutes (or as long as you want) but work wonders for your physical and mental health. These exercises are:

  • Moving of Yin and Yang: Shake up the energy in your body, get it moving up and down your torso and prepare it for the exercises that follow.
  • Breathing of the Universe: Open yourself up, embrace the energy of the universe and get ready to accept it, while relinquishing control of energy that you no longer need.
  • Joining of Yin and Yang: Complete this set of exercises with one that gives you energy that has been transformed, energy that can work wonders for your body.

They are also incredible easy to follow. Just replicate the movements performed by Master Lin on the DVD provided, and make sure you listen to his instructions as well. By the time you finish these exercises you will feel like a different person.

Where to Find Active Exercises

Active Exercises are featured in most primary courses at the Spring Forest Qigong Center. The SFQ Fundamentals course is the initial point of introduction, recommended for new students. Completion of this course allows progression to subsequent levels, such as Qigong for Healing and Qigong for Advanced Healing.

Moreover, Active Exercises are discussed at many annual retreats hosted by the SFQ Center, held both onsite and at various locations across North America. Online courses are available as alternatives.
