Students will be instructed in techniques of outer and inner qiqong. Outer qigong is concerned with strengthening the muscular-skeletal system: joints, muscles, tendons, bones and the spinal column. Techniques of tendon changing, marrow washing, self-massage and calisthenics will be taught. Inner qigong is concerned with nourishing the internal organs and cultivating qi, or internal energy.
Students will learn the Nine Self-Massage Techniques and the Twelve Devas Tendon-Changing system in their entirety. The Self-Massage Techniques focus on stimulating the meridians and acupuncture points; the Twelve Deva forms focus on recovering flexibility, strength and softness in the tendons and muscles.
