Chi Kung

Zhan Zhuang Kung 

 

    Chi kung (Qi Gong) means “cultivation of energy”

 

An ancient system of exercises developed through
 
 
thousands of years 
 
in China
 
Simple and apparently static positions
 
natural movements: 
 
 
"small movement is better than big movement,
 
 
no movement is better than small movement"
 
 
 
Chi Kung nurtures and harmonizes our inner energy .
 
It stirs up our physical and mental well-being.
 
It gives us strength and vitality.
 
Chi Kung allows to approach our daily life 
 
with more serenity and consciousness

The most ancient evidence of the practises
 
of strectching movements (Ba Duan Jin)
 
 
were painted on ancient silk rolls found in an esposed
 
in an old tomb
 
dated to first millennium before Christ.
 
They were therefore already long before known

    Zhan Zhuang Kung 

 
is the form of Chi Kung which could be
 
translated into
 
“standing like a tree”.
 
 
 
It has been  established by
 
Professor Yu Yong Nian in China
 
and transmitted to the West
 
by Master Lam Kam Chuen. 
 
 
 
It combines the therapeutic aspects of
 
Zhan Zhuang 
 
with the physical training of the martial arts
 
for developing strength and concentration.
 
 
 
Constant practice of the art has
 
a healthy impact 
 
on the nervous system, 
 
activates our internal energy 
 
and nurtures our vitality:
 
 
It makes us to feel better,
 
balanced and positive.
 
 
Zhan Zhaung Kung 
 
has been successfully applied to the
 
cure of chronic sickness 
 
and correction of wrong postures.

I am profoundly indebted to my teacher
 
Anders Håkansson
 
for bringing me to this path. 
 
He died in 2011.
 
His inspiration will always last.
