Qigong de la Grue


The old masters’ 32 movement form
for energy up-liftment

This uniquely effective set of movements constitutes an in-depth energy workout designed to remove energy blockages, open the eight extraordinary channels and to enhance both physical stamina and energy flow throughout the body. Through a series of slow standing movements, the Eight Treasures brings a deep sense of calm and helps improve posture and grounding while benefiting all muscles and joints, internal organs and systems. This specific form, Pa Kun Dao-In, is a fundamental method of the Taoist spiritual path of complete development & achievement.

The Eight Treasures is particularly well suited for young and middle aged people without serious physical limitations or for anyone with previous physical training. Enjoying regular practice of the Eight Treasures lays a firm foundation for a long and healthy life.
