Qigong exercise calls for selection of methods which suit the health status of the individuals. The practice of static qigong is aimed at training and accumulating qi to get the functional qi substantial in Dantian, and with more practice, to get qi circulating through the Ren and Du Channels and all the other channels, or further, to open the large and small circule of qi. On the other hand, static qi^ g is aimed at promoting the functional activities of qi to guarantee the free pass of it
through all the channels of the human body, which in turn may facilitate the static training of qi. The two methods are supplementary to each other provided they are combined as one.
No matter which of the two is practised, the principle " quiescence in motion and motion in quiescence" should be adhered to. When dynamic qigong is practised, while keeping physical movements going on, one needs to keep the mind concentrated on the effectiveness of limb movements and the circulation of qi along the channels and collaterals. When static qigong is practised,the more serene and relaxed one is, the more one can feel the effectiveness of the circulating qi along the channels and collaterals. A correct realization of the reffectlveness of motion can help one to concentrate himself , expelí distracting thoughts and raise the quality of exercise.
