If you are new to Qigong please do our Qigong for Beginners course before joining these classes.

The Five Taoist Yin Qigong and the Eight Exceptional Vessels Qigong both adhere to that underlying precepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The courses that preceded these classes, as well as the classes, are true Qigong. They work with the Meridians and Vessels Internally because without this they are no longer Qigong.
