MMQG Qi Gong rooting exercise

30 Apr

Rooting is a key exercise and practice in MMQG Qi Gong as well as in most Neijia – 內家 (Internal Martial Arts) and in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It helps to calm down your mind through the increased stability of your body.

This exercise has its origins in millenary Daoist practices. During the first half of the 1900 it has been called Zhan Zhuang站桩 by Sifu Wang Xiangzhai, the creator of Yiquan.

The most common Zhan Zhuang method is Hún Yuán – 浑圆 (Round Smoothness”), also referred to as Chēng Bào 撑抱 ( that means “Tree Hugging”).

Zhan Zhuang has a healthy, normalizing effect on the body and the mind, helping to release muscular tension and stress. This, of course, helps in healing from several muscular-skeletal medical conditions and to prevent them.
Zhan Zhuang has also a positive effect on your mind, that learns how to focus and to become clearer during the practice.
