Shi er duan jin qigong

why learn Shi er duan jin

Shi Er Duan Jin Qigong (十二段锦), translated as “Twelve Golden Treasure Brocade”, comes from ancient times known as Daoyin Qigong. Daoyin is a school of traditional bodybuilding exercises. Their emphasis on mental cultivation or consciousness training has made them unique in the world. The regulation of breathing is the most important means to achieve mental concentration. The twelve brocade combines motion with stillness, breathing, mental practice, meditation, and reflective contemplation.

Health Preservation

Shi Er Duan Jin Qigong is an outstanding representative of ancient Chinese health-preserving methods. It was highly praised by many medical scientists and health-preserving experts in Ming and Qing Dynasties. It absorbed the essence of Chinese traditional culture, organically combined medical treatment, exercise, and health preservation, with the primary goal of improving the quality of life and perfecting the state of life, and advocated the harmony and unity of body and mind through self-exercise and exercise. Twelve Duan Jin’s health-preserving thoughts systematically reflect traditional Chinese health-preserving methods’ natural, internal, and external training principles. Primarily it has a good effect on relaxing the body and mind.

The Twelve Duan Jin consists of twelve movements, combining movement and static. Among them, static exercise includes meditation, and the content of kinetic exercise includes sitting exercise and self-massage. During the exercise, breathing, guidance, and thought are coordinated, and the movements are soft, natural, smooth, and have both form and spirit. The whole set of movements is simple, straightforward, and easy to learn and practice. Suitable for people of different ages to exercise. Long-term adherence to exercise can effectively improve physical health and achieve the fruit of preventing disease and strengthening the body.

the inheritance of health


  1. The mind controls the breathing and the breathing controls the mind;
  2. The Yin and Yang between movement and stillness;
  3. Massage of the internal organs while stretching the ligaments and tendons.

The purpose of practicing Shi Er Duan Jin Qigong is to strengthen the body starting from the head, neck, shoulders, arms, back, waist, chest, abdomen, legs, and feet. In addition, strengthens the internal organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, stomach, liver), the senses (eyes, ears, nose, mouths, touch), and teeth.

Long-term practice helps to enhance the blood vessels’ flexibility, reduce the risk of atherosclerosis, improve heart and lung function, lower the body’s fat content, improve the heart function and the cardiac nerve.

This class is ideal for everyone.  From complete beginner to advanced practitioner, for the person who if performs well the routine can achieve certification to be able to teach it; for the person that has failed to get up from a comfortable couch over and over because it is old, fat, uncoordinated and embarrassed to exercise.  For the person who cannot find the motivation to work alone or the person who gets bored quickly because exercise is not fun and the entrepreneur that’s burning the candle at both ends. The corporate executive who lives from the hotel room into a hotel room. The friend that can never commit to going out because it is tired at the end of the day. The guy that always buys something with the thought will do the trick, canceling, and post pointing. The mom or dad finds excuses for not finding the time in a busy schedule as a full-time parent. So, let’s FIND THE TIME! Human adults need to live a free life where they have control over the only thing which belongs to them: their own body.

Well, this class is not suitable for the person who is looking to learn advanced Kung Fu in 2 weeks and get certified as a teacher. The friend who has its mind about what is best as exercise, the one that is looking for fighting. For this type of class, you can join our other courses.
