This course consists of thirty videos. It starts with two introductory practices - the first to mobilise the joints of the body and the second to cultivate the 'qigong state - characterised by deep integration of body, breath and mind. Each of the eight moves of the baduanjin (eight pieces of brocade or eight silken movements) is then explored in detail, starting with preparatory neigong (internal skill) practices to deepen understanding of each move. Once each move is learned, you can join in with the video exhibiting the smooth sequence of the whole form.
Additional videos discuss the practicalities of regular practice, how to develop lower abdominal (dantian) breathing, how to practise core qigong standing and much more, including an exploration of the history of qigong and an overview of why it is such a profound practice.

This two-part course is designed to develop an understanding of Yangsheng in the postpartum, the art of self-cultivation and taking the opportunity for change inherent in this life transition.
Each module will be one hour long and will be illustrated with mothers’ stories and footage from interviews with mothers. As this is intended for CM practitioners in a western setting with patients from many different cultural backgrounds, there will be an emphasis on understanding various different cultural practices in postpartum care from a Chinese medical viewpoint. There will be a discussion of how to help manage and support mothers’ postpartum in a modern clinical setting.
