Ba Duan Jin · 八段锦 · 8 Brocade ❗️ Read the description first ❗️by Shi Heng Yi.
➡️ Instructions on the practice: What to do? / How to practice?
➡️ Copy the movements! In each final position use any type of power to tense the body and make the posture become strong. It’s no problem to use muscle power in the beginning!
➡️ Stay in each posture and slowly deep breath! (Full inhalation – Full exhalation) Minimum should be around 4 breathing cycles (any number above is perfectly fine).
➡️ Try to keep the power / strength in each posture steady, regardless of in- or exhalation. Keep Focus and direct your intent in the proper direction.
For what should I aim for? / What is the goal of the practice?
➡️ Easy is: Do it for the pleasure of doing it!
➡️ Useful is: Make the postures become more powerful / stronger by every week!
➡️ Purposeful is: Observe and become aware of your transformation.

Why are there so many variations of this routine?
➡️ Practicing without clear intent is useless, no matter which form you choose.
➡️ This video is one of the more simple forms that I practice. Easy to remember, clear to execute.
➡️ You want more beautiful variations, go ahead. But understand the purpose of simplicity first.
