“Yi Jin Jing” Qigong

This course is now closed

7:00pm 24 February 2023 - 4:00pm 26 February 2023

Cost: £63.00

Venue: Samye Ling


This weekend, we will explore and practice Qigong employing the Buddhist Classic “Yi Jin Jing” as our vehicle.

Yi Jin Jing is an exercise consisting of 12 movements that are performed in a standing position. This is one of the most renowned and popular of all the classic Qigong exercises derived from and credence given to the monk Bodhidharma at the Shaolin Temple (5th or 6th century).

Throughout time, the system became revised and perfected to form what’s internationally known as Yi Jin Jing. That is, “change of sinews” or “muscle tendon change”, exercise where “Yi” means change, “ Jin” means bones and muscles and “Jing” means method.

This system  is well known for muscular pain relief, improvement in the ligaments and tendons in the neck, shoulders and back. 

In this course, Bob will endeavour to address:

  • The ideology and philosophy of Qigong
  • Acupuncture points related to Qigong exercise
  • The relative meridians (channels of energy in the body) relative to the exercise
  • Contra – indications in teaching Qigong
  • The Qigong exercise itself.

 We hope you'll enjoy and learn from the program that Bob will provide during this workshop.
