The exercises are very old and come from Buddhism Chan, the diamond path of Buddhism.

Qigong comes from the Taoist tradition and means "working with energy", "taking care of energy" or "energetic exercise". It is a combination of slow movement, conscious breathing and comforting presence in the body.

Qigong is an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
These millennial meditative exercises are designed to increase your own life energy (Qi) and harmonize your body, mind and soul. Here man sees himself as part of nature, as part of the larger whole, as a microcosm in the macrocosm.
This reconnection with nature and the knowledge that everything is in flux can give us strength, confidence, safety and security. In the state of relaxation and combined with the external sources of Qi, the whole body is gently moved and brought into its internal order. The mind rests. Then you increasingly feel the free flow of life energy.
The goal is to reach old age with health, serenity and serenity.

Chan Mi Gong is also known as "spinal qigong" or "Buddhist qigong". It can be translated as "Secret Meditative Immersion Exercises".
In a deep state of relaxation, the spine is moved up and down in an undulating manner. Then we discover again the four possibilities of spinal movement: waves, displacement, gyrus, winds. The whole body is included.

The goal is to experience the spine as an antenna swinging freely between heaven and earth and thus be in constant communication with our energy sources. From a physical point of view, we gradually dissolve deposits and movement restrictions in the vertebrae as well as tension in the back and pelvis.

Excerpt from qigong seminars:
In the nine simple "Dantian exercises" can we the feeling of connection experienced. The experience of a micro cosmos in macro cosmos to be, is one of the significant impact of this ancient range practice. To this also belongs a profound sense capacity of Yin and Y ang and the understanding that everything in change is.

The "perfect practice with the elements" is one, the movement by which we from the heart outward with the Qi of water, sky, nature and earth connect.

"Body cleansing" refers to about the meridian system. The meridians are clear of cloudy qi and nourished by fresh qi. In addition, the spine is prepared for other exercises.

The "source of light" allows us to breathe cosmic qi through Bai Hui and distribute it with the breath in the body. We extend this light as a light cover of the energized us.

In "The Four Basic Chan Mi Gong Exercises" try that our new spine again. In a deep state of relaxation, waves commute and turn the spine so that they then be in free motion, still twisting can.
