Qi Ball Exercise

Lesson 18-Qi Ball Exercise (Replay of Live Qigong Class)

This is a replay of a live Qigong session showing you a Qi ball exercise, taught by myself, Dr. Janice Tucker. I have been teaching Qigong for two decades and am the founder of the Space To Relax Programme of Qigong video lessons. I’m also a practitioner of acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. You can join my live classes on Zoom every Tuesday at 10 am and Thursday at 4 pm Irish time. These lessons will continue for the duration of Covid-19 and until I can return to my face to face Acupuncture/Chinese Medicine clinics.

If you have been enjoying these classes during the last couple of months and you’d like to donate something by way of a thank you, I’ll be giving 50% of donations to the ICU nurses in my local hospital. Click here to donate.

Introduction To Qi Ball Exercise

In this video you can follow along with a Qi ball exercise. This is your opportunity to have some fun with Qigong and experience the feeling of emitting your own Qi! Benefits include:

1. opening up and “dredging” the channels of Qi flow in your arms and hands;

2. calming and clearing your mind;

3. improving your ability to observe what is happening in your body;

4. relaxation on a physical, mental and emotional level.

Qi Ball Exercise – Method

1. Adopt the Qigong sitting or standing posture (more here).

2. Begin with Abdominal Breathing to get into the “Qigong State” of calm and relaxation (more details here).

3. Perform some simple movements of your neck, shoulders and hands to open up the pathways of Qi circulation (more here).

4. Practice the “Circles” exercise to encourage Qi circulation the four directions (see more detail here).

5. Follow along with the Qi Ball method.

6. End the practice with abdominal breathing, paying attention to how you feel physically, mentally and emotionally.

Integration into Your Day

You can practice this Qi ball exercise any time you have a few minutes to spare. However, you’ll gain more benefit from it if you have more time to experience the wonderful feelings of Qi in and between your hands. It’s a lovely exercise to practice in nature and a really good one to teach to children as they think it’s great fun!
