Qigong Basics: Five Element Practices for Health and Wellbeing 

Warmups for Joints and Organs + Five Elements Qigong + Five Element Mudras and Finishing Forms 

Qigong (chi kung) is an energy and intention-based practice that works with the principles of xing ming shuang xiu, meaning ‘the body and spirit are equally cultivated and refined’. Qi means ‘life force’ and gong means ‘to cultivate or build’. Thus qigong is the cultivation of life energy. While sometimes our qi can be healthy, balanced and flowing, when we are stressed, tense, or unwell, it can become stuck, stagnant, deficient or excessive. Regular practice of the sequences in this element-based qigong series can help maintain or rebalance the flow of energy in your body, supporting its innate ability to abide in a more balanced, healthy, natural state. 

Qigong Flow: The Eighteen Forms and Eight Brocades for Organ and Meridian Health 

Eight Brocades (Ba Duan Jin 八段锦) + Eighteen Forms (Shibashi 十八式) 

In this qigong video, Mimi presents two well-known and accessible forms of qigong practice: the Eight Brocades (Ba Duan Jin), and the Eighteen Forms (Shibashi). Both sequences are excellent routines for beginner and advanced students of qigong. They work with qualities of meditative awareness while building strength and flexibility. They also are designed to promote health and balance in the body’s organ and meridian systems. 

Eight Brocades: This section includes the Eight Brocades practices that works specifically to increase health and vitality in the organs, meridians and their associated emotional qualities. 

Eighteen Forms: Mimi presents these eighteen Forms using fluid, unbroken movements and visualisations that help us connect more intimately to the elements of the natural world and its harmonious state of balance.

Delightful and Robust


First being introduced to QiGong in high school by a friend, I have accumulated many direct teachings and videos. This DVD is among my favorites! Mimi balances information with instruction and guidance very well. (And such a nice voice to boot!)

I'm not a QiGong expert or anything, but this DVD goes beyond the usual "8 brocades" and introduces yet more wonderful routines(some more simple, some more complex). I personally feel very happy doing them.

Great Addition to my Qi Gong Collection


Whenever I finish a routine led by Mimi, I feel calmer, more centered, and peacefully energized. These dvds are great--easy to follow, full of information, beautiful to look at (especially when it's winter!), and with so much content it provides plenty of variety for my Qi Gong practices. Glad to have these in my library.
