1. White Crane Soft Qigong & 24 Yang Taijiquan

The White Crane Qigong is part of the whole White Crane system, which includes a martial arts system and both soft and hard White Crane Qigong. It was first developed by a woman named Fang, Qi Niang in the 17th
Century A.D. She had learned a Crane style from her father who practiced that form which came from Shaolin Monastery. The legend has it that she observed cranes at the riverside and combined those moves with her father's Crane style to create White Crane.
Lorelei learned the whole system with her dear friend, a Qigong teacher, John Platt. This beautiful form contains total 96 movements which combines with the movement of hands, wrists, torso, head, arms, legs and entire spine work. As you diving this practice, you become the white crane, the softness of whip movements of arms and spine bring you to the state of ease.


2. Longevity Daoist Qigong

The longevity 12 movements Qigong is based on the principles of how Daoist
nourishing one’s life. The exercises imitate the movements of turtle, crane and
other animals, how they stretch their bodies, and incorporate with breath
techniques to ignite human’s Zhen Qi, literally translate the real Qi. This routine
will help the Qi, blood and meridians flows in the body, therefore we achieve to
live a healthy and long life.

It's best if you can practice in the morning, outside in nature, breathing the fresh air and release turbid qi from inside of the body. Face the sun to cultivate Yang energy.

A few key points: whenever move left to breath in; and move to right to breath
out. Head up to breath in, head down to breath out. Breath in through the nose,
breath out through the mouth. The quality of the breath is light, slow, even and
long.

During the exercises, remember body move softly, use Yi, no Li, no forceful
movement, everything is guided by intention. After each movement, stop for 30
seconds to feel the Qi flow, allow the Qi nourishes the body quietly so the Qi
travels to every part of muscles, tendons and bones.
