What are the requirements for Qigong?
For a person who wants to learn Qigong, in the face of a variety of Qigong exercises and different requirements for breathing, posture, and ideas, often do not know where to start.
Or although I have been practicing qigong for a long time, I have not made much progress.
There are many kinds of qigong exercises, and the most obvious difference between the exercises is that their postures are different, which can be described as different.
Some maintain a fixed posture and are therefore called static work; some also constantly change the action, which is called dynamic work.
These postures and movements are only from the outside, and there are many things that seem to be difficult to distinguish from general sports, martial arts and even dance.
In fact, Qigong is very different from general sports and martial arts.
There are some special requirements for the posture movements of the exercises, mainly including the following aspects.
First, the posture and movement of Qigong are required to be based on the relaxation and quietness, and the mind is the dominant, so that the mind and body are highly coordinated.
Although some exercises emphasize posture movements, such as guiding massage exercises.
However, according to the requirements of Qigong, no matter what position, it should be kept in a quiet state.
In the process of exercise, you must concentrate on your mind and concentrate your thoughts; and these postures are more important to be given specific ideas, such as holding the ball and holding the air.
Therefore, in addition to having some physical exercise effects, these posture actions are more important to help to adjust the spirit.
Second, the qigong posture movement is based on the principle of easy natural and comfortable, and does not require absolute accuracy of the movement.
When qigong exercises, as long as the basic requirements of the prescribed posture movement, “easy and natural, comfortable and effective” can be done.
There is no need to extraordinarily calculate whether the gesture action is absolutely accurate.
Don’t pose for posture, causing mental stress and affecting relaxation.
Of course, with the deepening of the exercises, you can constantly adjust the posture movements to make it more reflect the specific ideas of the exercises, and tend to be artistic.
Third, the posture and movement of Qigong can be changed according to the different conditions of human beings due to the practice of the cause, and it is not necessary to insist on consistency.
Although various qigong exercises have specific requirements for posture movements, for different practitioners, they should be flexibly selected and transformed according to specific situations.
For example, patients with old and old body failure should first adopt horizontal or sitting type. After the physical strength is improved, they will gradually change to sitting and standing. The amplitude of the movement should be gradually increased from small to appropriate.Different diseases should use different postures. Some people have complicated and diverse conditions. They can use several postures to alternately deploy. Different training stages can also adjust the posture and movement. In the beginning, simple and easy-to-relax postures are used.After a period of practice, gradually re-select or adjust the practice posture according to the specific requirements of the practice essentials and posture, and increase the difficulty of the movement.
In the course of a practice, it is necessary to maintain a specific posture properly, and also adjust and change the posture in time.
When choosing a practice posture, under the premise of not affecting the effect of the exercise, you can also refer to the usual habits of the practitioners, and properly consider the individual habits so as to quickly adapt and master.
In addition, in the specific practice, appropriate posture actions should be selected according to the specific conditions such as time, climate and surrounding environment.
