Qi Gong Page
Joseph started to teach in Senior Centers about 20 years ago.  During that time he learned which
movements the seniors liked and which ones were beneficial to them.  He put together a series of
movements called Golden or Senior Chi Kung.
The Chi Kung (Qi Gong) path is a life time of study.  When most of us start we use it as an exercise.  Most people start with it as a
way to maintain good health or to regain their health.  It does not matter what brings you to the practice.

After doing the routine a few times you will start to feel some of the things we keep asking you to feel.  The more attention you put
on these feelings the more blood and energy you will be sending to the area.

Basically that is what we are trying to do in the exercise.  We want to cause your blood and energy to move up and down in and
out.  We want to show you how to feel this energy which you can use on yourself to support your own healing.

YouTube of Annie Chew do her 18 Form Qi Gong Workout.

Annie Chew practiced Qi Gong in the JAY Senior Center with me for years.  Every morning
she would go to the park with her friends and play Qi Gong and Yang Style Tai Ji.  

I asked her if she can do the Qi Gong routine by her self?  She could remember the 18
Forms so we put it to film, and put it on youtube. You can practice and enjoy these simple
movements by Annie.

omingyinyang@bmsec.com

Just let me know, it can also be sent with a gift certificate if you what to send it to an older
relative or friend.  

Thank you Annie and all the members of the JAY Senior Center for helping us out.

Some Comments about the Standing and Sitting Qi Gong YouTubes

Ilona Tate
This is excellent. There is such an array of different exercises here and all performed clearly and accurately. This is the best video I've
found for chair based Qi Gong. Very well done. What I love is that you are so gently but surely focused and so thorough in working the
whole body - not just the arms, which so many qigong practitioners focus on at the expense of the rest of the body. And you are completely
without pretension. Marvelous. Thank you for sharing x

The Bibleman
This guys videos are totally awesome.  I do these every day and I always feel great afterward.  Thank you for this.  I just wish there was
some instruction on how to breathe properly while doing these

Sandra Belanger
My mom is recovering from illness and not able to walk well.  I just sent this to her.  Thank you.

Thank you so much, I am recovering from a total knee replacement and this is just what I needed.

Link to Standing Qi Gong Practice  

The standing Qi Gong is a series of movements.  Each movement is flowing into the next.  Once you
see that you can follow the routine easily, then you can concentrate on your breathing, and use it as a
meditation, sending energy to the parts of your body that need it.  

Link to Sitting Practice

The sitting practice is done slow and with focus.  Like the standing routine try to get the sequence
down first.  Than more and more you will be able to relax into the movement.

Toe n Heel Tapping + Circling Feet (Ankle - Knee - Hip)

These movements are good for coordination, which will assist in balance.  
They will help improve concentration as well

Standing Pole - Stand Like a Tree (Part I of SLT Trilogy)

Maintaining a still posture for a period of time will assist in reducing stress
in both, body and mind.  It has been proven to enhance the performance
of the central nervous system and to help blood circulation
and to ensure a better functioned metabolism.

Lizzie showing cup song on YouTube  

Cup song seems to be perfect for Seniors.  It is like a patticake so it is good for
thinking and coowardination and balance.  We been trying it in the centers.
After Lizzie and everyone stopped laughing at me I realized it would be a good thing to
add into the Qi Gong routine

YMCA Tai Ji form for Better Balance

There are plenty of fine teachers showing the Y form so I am going to show the form
sitting and standing stationary.  The movements are basically the same, more
movement of the spine when SITTING, and movement from the bottom of the feet
while STANDING stationary.
These make wonderful Qi Gong movements.

There is one where my back is to you so it maybe easier to follow.

Then there is one where all the moves to make the Ball are done in a Snake movement.

This activates the pressure points and you will be able to feel the Chi building and
running especially at the wrist.
