Inside & Out Movement 30 Day Challenge

As part of Radiant Shenti's 30 Day Challenge, I'm posting a special series of online lessons.
Here you'll find lessons in four different Chinese traditions: Qigong, Tai Chi, Bagua and Xingyi. In addition to the reference videos, every Friday I will post a new lesson for you to try.
I have also included Paypal donation buttons with each section as a type of drop-in registration. Average donation is $4 to $12.

Qigong is a Chinese form of movement therapy that builds and trains Qi in the body. Sometimes referred to as Chinese yoga, the practice combines movement & mediation as a way to integrate mind & body. These classes teach simple Qigong movements and introduce some of the key Qigong ideas.
