CRANE STYLE CHI GONG
In the Orient, especially in China, Korea and Japan, the crane is a symbol of longevity and peacefulness. It has a quiet, non-competitive character. The movements of Crane Style Chi Gong are based on those of the crane that are graceful and harmonious, like the flow of water in a murmuring stream. Crane Style Chi Gong is simple to learn and practice. As long as one’s mind follows the flow of chi during the exercises, its therapeutic effect is pronounced and one’s energy becomes better regulated and balanced.
The Crane Style Chi Gong was developed in Beijing, China by Dr. Chao Jing Sian in 1980. Since then, its popularity has spread throughout China. Every day, more and more people practice it to cure their own chronic ailments or simply for the joy of staying healthy.
