The Ten Fundamental Treasures is set of very old Qigong that I was taught many years ago. Like a lot of the Qigong that Mater Bell taught me, this set is unknown to most but the exercises seem familiar to many. These Qigong share, in name only, a number of exercises that are in the Ba duan Jin (The Eight Section Brocade) and some of the exercises look similar. That similarity is only in the external movement as the Qi movement in the Ten Fundamental Treasures is not the same. I practice both of these sets and they are, internally, completely different.
The Ten Fundamental Treasures
This course includes
2 hours and 40 minutes of on-demand video
This Online Qigong course is for intermediate to advanced practitioners and is not really suitable for beginners. The emphasis, as with all Active Qigong, is on creating internal movement that has been stimulated, in part, by external (that is physical) movement.
Any physical raising, or lowering of the Wuiji stance should secondary. It is the raising and lowering of the Qi that is important.
The Ten Fundamental Treasures has some exercises that can be, physically, challenging so a reasonable level of leg strength and flexibility is required.
What Will I Learn?
