Qigong is a special form of traditional Chinese exercises for cultivating internal energy (Qi). Qi can be translated as breath or energy and gong as training or practice. These kind of exercises promote harmony and balance between body and mind.
Taiji Ruler qigong is an extension of Zhan Zhuang practice. It uses the (light) weight of the ruler to guide and stimulate deeper awareness in the body. It is used to enhance the sensation of whole-body connection and helps to facilitate the whole-body movement co-ordination.
Taiji Bang gigong expands on the Taiji Ruler set by using the ruler as a lever to provide wider and deeper range of movement and stimuli.
For these qigongs you will need a wooden stick about 5 cm in diameter and about 30 - 40 cm; a rolling pin (used for rolling dough!) is quite adequate (and cheap). We shall have a number of taiji rulers/rolling pins available for those who do not have their own.
