The Ba Duan Jin (8 Pieces of Brocade) is a set of exercises designed to cultivate health and wellness. It is one of the oldest sets of Qi gong or Neigong originating in the Song Dynasty (960-1127). Each of the eight exercises focuses on a specific organ system or part of the body. They balance the Yin and Yang energies and unblock the 12 Main Meridians of the body. The Ba Duan Jin are simple and effective exercises that promote optimal health and wellness.
