Breathing Techniques for Tai Chi Exercises

Breathing techniques for T'ai Chi are the same as they are for Qigong you are trying to breathe diaphragmatically, without holding or forcing the breath. One way to remember the proper breathing is to think of the martial meaning of the movements. So, when you are Warding Off, or pushing someone away, you are exerting yourself and need to exhale. When you are beginning to step and are drawing your feet together, or are coiling your arm across your body, you are in a defensive mode, so you would then inhale.

Chakral Breathing Technique

Chakral breathing technique is very potent, and the relief is usually immediate for simple ailments. Overdoing the chakral breathing technique may result in pranic congestion in the chakra and its corresponding organs.

Breathing techniques

The five major schools of breathing are medical, Confucian, Buddhist, Taoist and wushu or martial arts. Medical breathing techniques aim at strengthening one's overall health and are mainly preventive. The Confucian school of breathing deals with self-cultivation and temperament. Taoist breathing deals with one's moral character and longevity. The Buddhist breathing exercises are broken into two lines of thought and involve mainly the mind. The first Buddhist school is called 'Samadhi' and claims that everything in the world is illusionary. The other school is that of meditation which deals with the cultivation of the mind and the preservation of all forms of life on earth. The wushu method of breathing is for physical training and good health. All of these schools have one thing in common, that of training of the mind and development of the qi, or ch'i.

Posture and Breathing

Breathing techniques are also similar to the T'ai Chi and Qigong exercises. Especially in a seated meditation, diaphragmatic breathing is the preferred method. Remember to expand the lower abdomen, and then the chest, as you inhale contract first the lower abdomen, and then the chest, as you exhale. The idea is to utilize the diaphragm located below the lungs to ensure a deep, relaxed breath. The breath will be playing yet another role in our meditations here we will be observing the breathing cycle as a means of relaxing and focusing.

As they rise in front of your chest they cross (Figure 3-62), then separate up and out to the sides (Figure 3-63). Inhale deeply as they rise, and exhale as they sink out and to the sides. The Yi and the movement start at the waist and are passed to the limbs. The chest area is especially important in this exercise. The deep breathing and the movement of the arms loosens the muscles around the lungs. While doing this exercise you should also visualize that you are expelling the dirty Chi and air from your body and lungs, and pushing them away from your body. Repeat the movements ten times.

Regulating the Breath

The other side of the coin is that you can use your breathing to control your Yi. When your breathing is uniform, it is as if you were hypnotizing your Yi, which helps to calm it. From this, you can see that Yi and breathing are interdependent, and that they cooperate with each other. Deep and calm breathing relaxes you and keeps your mind clear. It fills your lungs with plenty of air, so that your brain and entire body have an adequate supply of oxygen. In addition, deep and complete breathing enables the diaphragm to move up and down, which massages and stimulates the internal organs. For this reason, deep breathing exercises are also called internal organ exercises.

Inhale deeply, and as you exhale, imagine that you are pushing a heavy object. You will easily see that, when you try to push as strongly as possible, you automatically use reverse breathing.

Flow The Body Tai Chi Chuan

This whole process of Daoist breathing is a form of deep breathing, not because the breathing is heavy, but because it works the lungs to near capacity. While many people who engage in strenuous exercise breathe hard, they do not necessarily breathe deeply. Deep breathing causes the internal organs to vibrate in rhythm with the breath, which stimulates and exercises them. The organs would not receive this type of internal exercise without deep breathing. Many forms of strenuous exercise only condition the external muscles, while doing very little for the vital organs.

After you train this abdominal anus breathing for a period of time, you will feel that when you breathe, the lower part of your body is also breathing with you.

Introduction to Medical Qigong

In the Yin-Yang Theory, all of life is composed of two opposing yet complementary forces the yin (feminine, dark, weak) and the yang (masculine, light, strong). At birth, the human body normally contains equal amounts of both traits. When sickness develops, it can be attributed to a deficiency or excess of either of the two forces. Medical Qigong seeks to restore this balance through movement and breathing exercises.

In the preceding breathing exercises, you have been asked at certain points to circulate the Microcosmic Orbit. Your life-force energy thus must be circulated through specific pathways in the body efficiently and safely to be used for healing and growth.

One of the most effective physiological cleansing modalities is a 30 to 45 minute massage with an equal blend of unrefined olive oil and peanut oil, commencing at the crown, down the spine, over the head, face and shoulders, into the soft tissues of the abdomen and pelvic girdle, proceeding to the limbs, palms and soles of the...

Records that describe breathing exercises exist from about 1000 B.C. The Chinese, like the ancient Greeks, believed in a healthy mind in a healthy body, and discovered many techniques that were supposed to enhance health and well-being. It is not known exactly where or when qigong as we now know it began, but there have been many different styles that have evolved through the years. Chi Kung is a form of internal alchemy that involves mind, Chi power and breathing exercises. It teaches how to detoxify the body in order to stimulate the flow of energy and to pack and condense Chi. Thereafter, to circulate it in the body and to use the breath to pack the organs, glands, muscles and bones with Chi so that they will stay healthy and strong.

The Development of Qigong

The Qin (221-207 b.c.) and Han (206 B. C.-a.d. 220) dynasties saw a rapid development of medical skills, which in turn enhanced Qigong theory and practice. The Yellow Emperor's Canon of Internal Medicine, the earliest medical classic extant in China, described Daoyin, Guidance of Qi, and An Qiao as important curative measures that could also preserve life. It also offered the following advice, which besides offering a general life philosophy, describes the state of mind necessary for successful Qigong practice Be indifferent to fame or gain, be alone in repose, and take the various parts of the body as an organic whole. There is an account of Daoyin found in Plain Questions On Acupuncture (Su Wen Yi Pian Ci Fa Lun) that says, Patients with lingering kidney disease may face south from 3 to 5 a.m., concentrate the mind, hold back the breath, crane the neck and swallow Qi as if swallowing a hard object seven times. After that, there would be a great amount of fluid welling up from under...

The Universe and I combine together

Qigong is a study of the energy ot the whole universe, which includes physics, chemistry, psychology, biology, astrology, electricity, and medicine. We focus on medical Qigong, the cornerstone of traditional Chinese medicine. Qigong has been practiced in China for over five thousand years and has been shown effective in the prevention and cure of many diseases. Today tens of millions of people in China practice Qigong because of its great power of healing. Yet unlike acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine, or tai chi, Qigong remains a mystery to most Americans. This ancient discipline combines mental concentration, breathing technique, and body movements to activate and cultivate our vital energy as it flows through the invisible channels of the body.

All kinds of amazing psych abilities developed because they practised Qigong

Kate Britton Qigong

Chen Wangting devoted himself to self cultivation and developed Taijiquan by combining his knowledge of martial arts with the Daoshu movement and breathing exercises known as Daoyin and Tuna. The earliest textual source of Tuna is the name of a breathing technique which literally translates as 'spitting out and taking in'. During the Period of Disunity (221 - 589 AD) Tuna became a common collective term for a wide variety of breathing techniques. The basic theory is that by breathing you live. When you breathe in you take in Yuan Qi (original heaven Qi) from the atmosphere or universe around you. This strengthens and replenishes your own body's Qi. The deeper and slower the breath the more Yuan Qi that can be absorbed.

Like all popular traditions in any culture, the origins of these exercises are shrouded in myth and legend. Some say the exercises began several thousand years ago. There are historical records of similar types of exercise dating back 4000 years to the time of the Yao settlements, when regulated body exercises and special breathing techniques were said to be used to cure disease. The most recent evidence of the long history of these movements comes from a silk book unearthed in 1979, known as the Dao Ying Xing Qi Fa (Method of Inducing Freeflow of Chi). The book dates from the Western Han dynasty, which ran from 206BC to AD24, and bears 44 drawings of men and women in exercise positions resembling those in this chapter.

Regulation of Breathing

Regulation of breathing, also called inhaling and exhaling, breathing method, venting or taking in, is an important link in Qigong exercise. The ancients attached great importance to breathing exercises and described a great number of methods including inhaling (Fu-Qi), eating (Shi-Qi), entering (Jin-Qi), swallowing (Yan-Qt), circulating (Xing-Qi), taking in (Cai-Qi), upper breathing (Shang-Xi), lower breathing (Xia-Xi), full breathing (Mun-Xi), blurted breathing (Chong-Xi), lasted breathing (Chi-Xi), long breathing (Chang-Xi), and deep breathing (Shen-Xi). The breathing methods described in the following sections are the ones most commonly used in Qigong practice. Natural respiration is the ordinary breathing pattern that occurs under normal physical conditions. Because of the difference in physiology between male and female and the difference in the breathing habits of individuals, natural respiration can be further divided into natural thoracic respiration, natural abdominal...

Thus deep breathing has a cooling and calming effect and balances the Fire when it gets too excited. The Water element is activated when excess heat of the heart is brought down through the spine to warm up the kidneys. The Water energy of the kidneys can be guided upward to cool the heart.

Swimming Experiencing the Ultimate Flow

One of the profoundest means of enhancing overall health, swimming in fresh - and particularly salt - water is second to none in purifying, strengthening and energizing the energy field. The total polymorphous stimulation of the water, rich in the broken-bonded negative ions which thrive wherever water breaks over itself, such as seashores, running brooks and streams, and heavily rained upon areas, provides maximum cleansing effect to the human system, mobilizing total lymphatic circulation, intense peripheral blood flow, and spontaneous, sustained deep breathing. Both physiological and energetic stagnation are completely dissolved, with resultant penetration of chi into the deepest recesses and the furthermost extremities of the body, particularly as the alternating currents of air, wind and water rhythmically play over the body.

The mechanics of mingjing just described stimulate the meridian and energetic system of the body and encourage the development of huajing, or hidden power. Huajing is unique to internal martial arts and is based on Taoist yogic alchemy. It involves the movement and transformation of the body's qi. For the student, huajing is an exciting stage of development since it is where he or she learns to feel the flow of internal energy in his or her body. Most report that it feels like currents of heat, pressure, and or electricity. It is developed and controlled through Taoist breathing exercises, qi gong posture, and

Return to the Great Primordial Qi

Adjust your breathing to be slow, smooth, deep, and even. There should be no noise from your breathing. in Chinese, this breathing technique is called Mi Mi Mian Mian HI MM, meaning the breath is soft and unbroken like cotton and silk. Gather the Qi with all the pores of your body as you inhale. Condense the Qi in your Dantian H1 H as you exhale.

History and origin of Qigong

Traditionally any exercise that dealt with breathing and internal methods was considered to be Qigong. Nowadays we tend to call the more static breathing techniques Qigong and the moving exercises by their specific names. Found at the No. 3 Tomb excavations at Mawangdui in Changsha, the capital of Hunan Province, were many medical treatises and books on daoyin dating to the Western Han dynasty (206 BC AD 24). Among these relics were pieces of silk onto which had been painted figures of men and women, young and old performing daoyin exercises. 44 pieces of silk were found. Some figures imitated the movements of the bear, ape, tiger, deer and bird which are now called 'Wuquinxi' or the five animal forms. All of these physical movements were combined with breathing techniques. Next to one of the figures were the words, 'Look skyward and exhale'.

This is the bodily cost of chronic stress life as we know it. We make it hard for our bodies to fix themselves. Anything we can do to dissipate stress is time and energy well spent. T'ai Chi is a great way to reduce stress. The mental focus of the mind leading the movement thinking only of the movement the slow, flowing shifts of balance the regular, deep breathing the harmonious turning of the limbs and the circular openings and closings of the T'ai Chi form make it one of the best stress reducers available.

Tao Cosmology Unfolding the Original Trinity

The Inner Smile is silent, heart-centered, and effortless, which allows us to penetrate into hidden, silent levels of our deep core in a way that mantra, visualization, breathing techniques, movement methods or simple empty-mind meditation may not achieve. It is especially not easy to grasp our Original Substance and feel it in the body.

The method

There is a set routine starting from the head and moving down. Sit on the floor in a lotus or cross-legged position. The palms are held as shown in photograph 35 the eyes are slightly closed with the tongue pressed lightly to the hard palate. The shoulders are relaxed and the back straight and vertical to the ground. After a short time of meditation rub the palms together for about 10 seconds to create some heat. Then place the index and middle fingers of each hand onto the forehead as shown in photograph 36. Rub the fingers back and forth lightly all over the forehead for about 10 seconds, then take the palms back down to the knees in a circular movement and meditate again for about 10 seconds, breathing deeply but gently.

Regulating the Mind

For example, the lungs correspond to the element Metal, and the heart to the element Fire. Metal (the lungs) can be used to adjust the heat of the Fire (the heart), because metal can take a large quantity of heat away from fire, (and thus cool down the heart). When you feel uneasy or have heartburn (excess fire in the heart), you may use deep breathing to calm down the uneasy emotions or cool off the heartburn.

What is Chi Kung

During the Jou dynasty (1122-934 B.C.), Lao Tzyy (Li Erh) mentioned certain breathing techniques in his classic Tao Te Ching (Classic on the Virtue of the Tao). He stressed that the way to obtain health was to concentrate on Chi and achieve softness (Juan Chi Jyh RouX*l). Later, Shyy Gi (Historical Record) in the Spring and Autumn and Warring States Periods (770-221 B.C.) also described more complete methods of breath training. About 300 B.C. the Taoist philosopher Juang Tzyy described the relationship between health and breathing in his book Nan Hwa Ching. It states The men of old breathed clear down to their heels This was not a figure of speech, and confirms that a breathing method for Chi circulation was being used by some Taoists at that time.

Translators Notes

Hun Yuan Tai Chi Chuan Academy Llc Logo

Qigong is more than just a set of breathing exercises. It is the codification of the Chinese language, philosophy, tradition and belief system. The language used in the writings of qigong, therefore, is complex and opaque, to say the least. The meaning of the words used in qigong is also quite far removed from the meaning of the same words in a general sense.

Breathing in Harmony

While Professor Pang explained various breathing techniques in another book - Essences of Zhineng Qigong Science, which we included little of in this edition, to the seasoned practitioner, it soon becomes obvious that there is a natural, almost inevitable movement and rhythm of one's respiration which enhances one's practice of Zhineng Qigong. Frequently, it is the case that the outgoing chi will travel upon an exhalation, and the incoming chi upon an inhalation - but not always. In some instances, the sense of internal energetic opening and closing will override this, dictating

Come out of the position while exhaling by first straightening the front leg. Then, turning, both feet parallel to each other, place them together. Repeat for an equal time on the opposite side. (Simply reverse left and right when following the instructions).

Respiration

Respiration is also called regulation of breathing, breathing method, or venting and taking in (tu na). It is an important link in qigong exercise. The ancients attached great importance to breathing exercises. A great many terms about breathing exercises can be found in books written in ancient times, such as fuqi (inhaling qi), shiqi (eating qi),jinqi (entering qi),yanqi (swallowing qi),xingqi (circulating qi) and caiqi (taking in qi) as for breathing methods, there are terms such as shangxi (upper breathing), xiaxi (lower breathing), manxi (full breathing), chongxi (blurted breathing), chixi (lasted breathing), changxi (long breathing) and shenxi (deep breathing). The following breathing methods as required for training of qi are usually used.

I teach classes to psychotherapists now, Spring Forest Qigong for psychotherapists, and that's what I teach them. They can give their clients so much help by just teaching them a little Qigong. They have to practice Qigong of course for them to be effective models. They have to get their own breath work right. But they learn like I did that getting your own self in balance, opens up the door for healing on all levels, body, mind and spirit. Then you can teach your clients one or two simple breathing exercises and some visualization techniques and it can so enhance their healing.

Qigong

Qigong, or ch'i kung, translated means breath work or breathing exercises and we can use it to build up our internal energy or ch'i. We need an adequate supply of ch'i to each organ to maintain good health, but just as important is the free flow of this energy through the meridians.

Press the soles of the feet to the floor so that they seem to adhere to it by suction. The toes are part of a tendon line and, as such, are part of an energy flow line. To take advantage of this fact, press and clamp all of the toes firmly to the floor but do not allow them to bulge up. When concentrating on the soles, you may find that they grow warm or feel cool. Inhale ten percent and coordinate with the breath, sucking the earth energy into your soles. Inhale ten percent using the Packing Process breathing technique described in the First Stage. (Fig. 3.38) Pull the energy up to the sexual organs and the urogenital diaphragm, the pelvic diaphragm, the left and right anus, the kidneys (Fig. 3.39) and the lower diaphragm. Feel as though you are sucking the earth. Feel the earth energy begin to enter the soles and move up the leg bones to the knees. The earth energy can feel cool or sometimes tingling. Some people feel warm.

Breathing are interdependent, and that they cooperate with each other. Deep and calm breathing relaxes you and keeps your mind clear. It fills your lungs with plenty of air, so that your brain and entire body have an adequate supply of oxygen. In addition, deep and complete breathing enables the diaphragm to move up and down, which massages and stimulates the internal organs. For this reason, deep breathing exercises are also called internal organ exercises.

Taoist yoga

From Taoism we have received the great internal arts such as T'ai chi ch'uan, pa-kua chang, Taoist yoga and Qigong. These were all based upon 'doing by not doing'. This concept can be explained by comparing Indian and Chinese yoga. If both arts were practised side by side we would see that the India yogi (in most cases) would be performing more movement than the Chinese yogi. In actual fact the Chinese yogi would be doing more work than the Indian would by 'not doing'. The Chinese yogi would hold very difficult stances for long periods of time with little or no movement. These isometric postures were said to be able to send the energy around the body and open up all of the channels of ch'i or life-force when performed in conjunction with certain breathing techniques.
