Da Yan Wild Goose Qigong is an ancient gentle health practice, similar to Tai Chi, focusing on moving your body without too much physical or mental tension, and thereby creating relaxation, tranquility and health.
Da Yan translates to Great Bird and is an ancient Qigong practice originating from the Kunlun School of Daoism in the Jin Dynasty (1,700 years ago). You will learn to mimic the movements of the Wild Goose, a bird revered in China for its strength and health, as it gently strengthens its body and mind to fly a long distance migratory flight over the Himalaya Mountains. You will learn a version called the Rainy Day Practice, a shortened form consisting of 26 movements, while keeping all the basic principles and essence of Qi health cultivation. These gentle movements bring together the observation of the laws of nature, thousands of years of Chinese Medicine, a continual linage of practice over many centuries, and a reputation for improving health and longevity. Each day you will learn and practice the movements of Da Yan Wild Goose Qigong, ending each day with a meditation.
