Xing Shen Zhuang is the second level of intelligent (Zhineng) Qigong which focus on training the body strength to improve our health. I call it Qi fitness. It balances level one, Peng Qi Guan Ding Fa and covers Jing, Qi & Shen, three levels' cultivation. The Xing Shen Zhuang has a few characteristics:
1. The form is challenging, and it connects body and mind with Shen (spirit) through ten sets of movements.
2. Focus on moving ligaments, internal Qi movement, small joints and joints that seldom move in our normal usage of the body. The qi can be activated faster, and it can reach to the hair, skin, and fingertips.
3. Body merges with spirit and Qi through relaxed state with full awareness. Movements are slow and soft, internally circular motion with externally clear shapes. The idea is to focus on the wholeness when move any parts of the body, moving like cobra, power within, searching quietness in movement.
The effects of this exercise are:
1. Stretch muscles and bones, strengthen body shape and body shape;
2. Relax the body, smooth the meridians, and activate the true qi(Zhen Qi) to facilitate opening and closing of the orifice;
3. Easier to form and gain wisdom, it is the ladder of deep study of qigong.
