Therefore, all introductory HarmonyQi Stress Relief Technique course are conducted in small groups to ensure optimal results and learning progress at the entry level.

I have acquired knowledge in the HarmonyQi Stress Relief Method or functional courses; do I need to progress to the essential courses?

No, it's not mandatory. If time constraints hinder a seamless transition, it's acceptable to learn the essential courses later and then revisit the LotusQi Heart Cultivation Technique. However, it's highly recommended to participate in the essential courses, as it is a beautiful and profoundly comforting practice promoting physical and mental well-being, instilling a serene state of mind.

I heard the Instructor mention that the LotusQi Heart Cultivation Technique can be provided for free. What are the conditions?

Upon completing of the introductory HarmonyQi Stress Relief Technique, enrolling in essential course (e.g., EnerQi series, YoungQi series) within a month entitles you to receive the LotusQi Heart Cultivation Technique, valued at NT$5900 (USD $199), for free. This technique is beneficial for physical health and emotional well-being, aiding in releasing emotional burdens and enhancing mood. It pairs well with seasonal energy practice.

Do I need to complete the LotusQi Heart Cultivation Technique before advancing to the essential courses?

However, it's crucial to participate in this course, as it is a beautiful and deeply comforting practice resulting in physical and mental harmony and tranquility.

Is Qigong suitable for individual practice or group practice?

One notable feature of Bai Yin Qigong is its adaptability for both individual and group practice. Practicing alone allows for daily focus, while group practice enhances the effect through a powerful collective energy field. Therefore, after completing essential courses like EnerQi and YoungQi, there are weekend online group practice sessions scheduled. Participating with thousands of people online still creates a robust shared energy field, fostering a sense of unity in the practice. Group practice also encourages continuity, as observing others persisting serves as motivation in this essential learning process.

Free Courses vs. Paid Courses

Is it sufficient to follow online videos, or why attend paid classes?

The free videos present Qigong exercises crafted by Master Bai Yin, allowing students to learn and practice conveniently at home, addressing specific bodily discomforts. However, due to considerations of students' learning proficiency and safety, the movements in the videos differ significantly from those taught in classrooms. While the video-designed movements can relieve localized discomfort and allow students to experience Qi sensations, understanding how to combine movements with Chinese medicine meridians, Qi, blood circulation, and regulation requires joining in-person classes. The comprehensive guidance from the teacher and coach in a classroom setting ensures optimal learning outcomes.

Are movements in YouTube videos safe?

Similarly, the Qigong movements in these videos are safe, yet any discomfort during practice should prompt an immediate stop and consultation with a professional healthcare team to avoid potential risks. Qigong learning is individualized, emphasizing a personalized approach rather than forcing specific movements or striving for predefined standards.

Can I follow these videos regardless of my physical condition?

While the Qigong movements in the videos are designed as safe exercises by Master Bai Yin, consulting with a professional healthcare team before practice, especially if you have specific concerns, is advisable. Any discomfort during practice should lead to an immediate stop without pushing oneself further.

How are these videos different from other fitness or yoga movements?

The primary difference lies in the holistic approach of Qigong, considering meridian channels, Qi and blood circulation, and Qi sensations. Qigong movements prioritize exercising within one's capacity, progressing gradually each day, and focusing on personal improvement rather than external comparisons. Therefore, pushing oneself to achieve specific movements or degrees during practice is discouraged.

Can I combine these videos according to my needs?

Given that these movements are safe exercises designed by Master Bai Yin, combining them for practice is permissible without additional warm-up or cool-down. However, any discomfort during practice should lead to an immediate stop and consultation with a professional healthcare team or contacting Bai Yin customer service.

I can follow free videos for practice. Why pay for classes?

While free videos target single topics or specific discomforts, paid classes, either online or in-person, provide comprehensive sets of Qigong exercises. These classes, conducted by teachers, encompass warm-up and safe cool-down movements, ensuring a smooth Qi and blood circulation throughout the body. Paid courses address the root causes rather than symptoms, offering a more effective solution to a broader range of discomforts.

How do paid online courses differ from free videos?

Free video content focuses on single-topic Qigong exercises, while paid online courses address broader discomforts by combining multiple sets of exercises. These courses incorporate Qigong theory, considering meridians, Qi, blood circulation, and enhancing the learning experience, making it easier to alleviate stress and related issues such as stiffness or pain.

Why Opt for Bai Yin Qigong?

Bai Yin Qigong stands out as a lifelong learning system.

The rich tradition of Qigong in Chinese culture, spanning thousands of years, has not only endured but has transformed into a shining phoenix, spreading its wings across the Western world and making strides in scientific and medical realms. No longer shrouded in mysticism, Qigong has evolved into a wisdom-driven method for healing the mind and body, enhancing life quality. The ancient wisdom, transcending eras, combined with Western medical advancements, prompts an exploration of the invaluable contributions of Qigong to human well-being. According to Bai Yin, an international Qigong authority, "Qi" was considered the core of life thousands of years ago—a profound philosophical concept. Qi permeates various life forms, mutually influencing and generating changes through promotion or inhibition.

Logical and Methodical Approach of Bai Yin Qigong

Bai Yin articulates, "When Qi flows, blood flows; when Qi and blood flow, all diseases are eliminated." Qigong involves refining inner true Qi, fostering Qi and blood flow, ensuring normal circulation, purifying, overcoming negativity, and assisting in disease dispersion. Correct practice leads to strengthened inner true Qi, fostering autonomous regulation in affected areas and promoting self-healing.

Introduction to Bai Yin Qigong's History

The roots of Bai Yin Qigong's Essential Courses Technique

Trace back to the essence of Chinese culture, spanning over five thousand years. Presently, our primary curriculum encompasses four key sets of exercises: the EnerQi Series, originating from the Jin Dynasty's venerable monk Dao An, passed down through 27 generations to Master Yang Meijun, and later adapted by Master Gao Yun. The Advanced Five Animal Frolics, dating back over 1800 years to the Three Kingdoms period, represents one of China's earliest recorded qigong practices. This set, known as the Health Preservation Exercises of the Five Animals, was transmitted from the ancient Chinese physician Hua Tuo to the great general Sima Yi. The Rejuvenation Series has its roots in the Huashan School of Quanzhen Daoism, boasting over 800 years of history in health preservation and longevity techniques traditionally practiced within the imperial court. Additionally, the advanced level of the Turtle Longevity Technique has its origins in Wudang. Bai Yin Qigong's founder, Master Bai Yin, inherited her teachings from Master Gao Yun, who was formally taught by Master Kuang Changxiu of Mount Lao, Qingdao. With exceptional talent, Master Gao Yun compiled six sets of mutually linked practices after researching various qigong schools, forming the basis of Bai Yin Fashionable Qigong's teaching after adaptation.

Suitability of Qigong for Different Constitutions

In principle, qigong is suitable for individuals with varying constitutions. Through dedicated practice, "qi is the best healer," capable of adjusting each individual's constitution to its optimal state. However, for chronic illnesses resulting from years of irregular living habits or stress, or major illnesses caused by genetic mutations, the effectiveness of qigong practice is uncertain. It is advisable to explore other medical methods to treat the body's diseases.

Ideal Age for Qigong Practice

Qigong offers different levels of practice, making it suitable for individuals from 4 years old to 88 years old. However, the practice should be tailored to one's actual physical condition. Quality teaching is essential for correct qigong practice and health preservation. According to Master Bai Yin, anyone above 8 years old can learn the EnerQi Series. After turning 30, it is recommended to learn the YoungQi Series. Beyond the age of 45, the Turtle Longevity Technique becomes essential. For those facing intestinal aging issues, learning the Sound Therapy and Pigu Cleansing Technique is also recommended.

Distinguishing Qigong from Regular Exercise

While regular exercise aims to adjust cardiovascular function and maintain physical health, qigong practice focuses on nurturing and replenishing primordial energy. Qigong's purpose is to promote blood circulation and regenerate energy. Healthy individuals possess the physical strength to sustain exercise, but those already suffering from illness face challenges in maintaining physical activity. Moreover, exercise consumes more oxygen compared to qigong, making inappropriate exercise methods detrimental to patients, increasing energy consumption, and straining the heart and lungs. Qigong is suitable for anyone to practice, particularly those who are sick, weak, or have poor physical fitness, providing a unique method of health preservation.

Differences between Bai Yin Contemporary Qigong and Other Qigong Practices

Qigong can be categorized into orthodox inherited qigong and self-evolved or self-created qigong. Most practices in the market belong to the latter category, often evolved or self-created by later generations, achieving effects akin to general exercises without the ability to adjust individual constitutions and treat diseases. Bai Yin Contemporary Qigong, taught by Master Bai Yin and Master Yin Quan, belongs to the category of orthodox inherited qigong. These practices have undergone thousands of years of historical verification and clinical trials by millions of practitioners. Their transmission is strict, requiring decades of practice experience for recognition. Hence, these practices not only excel in effectiveness but also offer rigorous teaching methods, ensuring fast and impactful outcomes.

Frequently Asked Questions about Learning Qigong

What will each class cover, and are there any distinctive features?

Every session incorporates comprehensive theoretical elements of the exercises, including a fusion of Eastern and Western health theories, analysis of contemporary disease causes, and instructional guidance for the exercises. Remarkably, the instructors assist students in activating the body's energy reservoir, swiftly adjusting their constitution, and enhancing overall health. Currently, very few instructors worldwide provide this level of instruction, as it demands substantial expertise and a pure mindset to employ this method effectively. This unique skill, inherited from Master Gao Yun by Master Bai Yin and Master Yin Quan, enables students to swiftly experience the benefits of Qi and apply it to self-regulate the body.

Is it suitable for children to engage in practice? At what age is the best starting point?

We offer specially designed parent-child classes catering to both children and parents. While parents might initially assume that children struggle to stay still and lack the comprehension and endurance for the movements, over a decade of teaching experience indicates that once children enter the realm of practicing "Qi," they become remarkably calm and focused. They display heightened sensitivity to Qi sensations, often grasping concepts even before adults do. Among my students, there are instances of children guiding their parents in remembering movements or urging them to attend classes.

If children enjoy this practice, they willingly and independently practice every day, without the need for parental coercion. Regarding the best starting age, several parents have brought their four-year-olds to class. In a lively and dynamic learning environment, incorporating Qi regulation through dance-like movements, these children complete the exercises joyfully, surpassing the results of many adults due to their naturally pure Qi.

Why is it easy to deviate when practicing casually?

All Bai Yin Qigong students are personally guided and initiated by Masters, and each exercise undergoes clinical certification by Master. With its long history and international recognition, the Bai Yin Qigong ensures safety, even for beginners in the introductory class, who may already experience results comparable to those with years of practice in other systems. However, although the exercises may seem simple, their profound nature requires a level of sensitivity not accessible to novices. Even if one attempts to follow along without formal guidance, the maximum outcome achieved is akin to general exercise, lacking the transformative and therapeutic effects of self-healing and health maintenance. Without immediate correction by a teacher, individuals with higher sensitivity may enter a Qi dynamic state without proper meridian guidance, leading to uncontrolled and random Qi movements. This deviation can manifest as symptoms such as dizziness, mental fogginess, chest discomfort, and potentially more severe deviations.

Can women practice during pregnancy?

Qigong can be practiced during the fourth to seventh months of pregnancy, and it's even encouraged to integrate practice with prenatal education. Simplified exercises like EnerQi Beginner or tranquility techniques are suitable during pregnancy. For dynamic techniques, movements should avoid repetition, causing minimal stress on the joints, with moderate amplitude to prevent excessive bending or sudden up-and-down motions. Focus should be on breathing exercises and mental coordination, avoiding concentration on the Dantian area. Consistent practice during pregnancy not only prevents excessive weight gain but also aids postpartum recovery, resulting in a healthier, more immune-resilient, and intelligent child with a gentle personality.

If a mother experiences stress and depression during pregnancy, the child born may be smaller with an unstable temperament. Practicing Qigong can bring positive emotions to mothers, making it advisable for prenatal care. Historical examples, like the mother of King Wen of Zhou, sitting in the backyard for quiet cultivation during pregnancy, suggest the influence of prenatal education on a child's intelligence.

What if I have poor comprehension and lack exercise cells? I'm worried about not learning.

Master's techniques are straightforward and easy to understand, with detailed and clear instructions during class. Course materials, such as lecture notes, are provided for review, and there are multiple assistants available for questions. Additionally, all courses have weekly group practice sessions, where experienced teaching assistants help correct movements and provide guidance. With these resources, anyone can learn and improve their practice.
