Course Overview
This course consists of thirty videos. It starts with two introductory practices - the first to mobilise the joints of the body and the second to cultivate the 'qigong state - characterised by deep integration of body, breath and mind. Each of the eight moves of the baduanjin (eight pieces of brocade or eight silken movements) is then explored in detail, starting with preparatory neigong (internal skill) practices to deepen understanding of each move. Once each move is learned, you can join in with the video exhibiting the smooth sequence of the whole form.

Additional videos discuss the practicalities of regular practice, how to develop lower abdominal (dantian) breathing, how to practise core qigong standing and much more, including an exploration of the history of qigong and an overview of why it is such a profound practice.

    What People Are Saying

    A wonderful course for body, mind and spirit!

    Sara H.- United States of America

    A fantastic course for beginners and more experienced Qi Gong practitioners. Peter Deadman is an excellent teacher.

    Anna R.- Australia

    These classes are excellent. Deadman is a calming force and an informative and effective teacher. These are perfect for both beginners and experienced practitioners. As an acupuncturist I have taken qigong from multiple teachers in the last 20 years, all others in person. I was skeptical of an online class but Deadman's cultivation of qi is quite evident and I find in watching the videos I am very naturally drawn into my own practice. This is the second course of his that I've purchased.
