Tiandi Qigong: 1. Shaking

Shaking the body loose

Set up

  • Place feet  hip distance apart with toes pointing slightly inwards.
  • Check posture(tail bone in, chin slightly tucked in, bend knees slightly, arms hanging off the body like ropes on the end of a stick).Relax the joints.
  • Wear a smile on your face.
  • Open the pours of your skin.

Shake the body

  1. Breathing in and out as you bend the knees  shaking the body. Start with three minutes building up to five minutes.
  2. Now continue shaking but lifting heals off the ground. Continue for another three minutes.
  3. Now continue shaking for another three minutes with feet flat on the ground again as you started for another three minutes.

You will feel a shower of energy on your head. Enjoy the feeling as it covers your shoulders, neck and energy settles into the body and blockages are released from muscles and bones in the body Inside the body the blood circulation has increased helping to release blockages, and clearing negative energy through your hands and feet. Energy is moving through the body.
