Dayan Qigong is an ancient Chinese martial art for health and longevity. “Dayan” means wild goose. “Qigong” means the practice of qi. It is a complete set of exercises including warm ups, meditation, self massage and 64 movements.
Dayan Qigong promotes health and immune function, increases energy, flexibility and balance, and reduces stress. It is part of traditional healing in that it balances the yin and yang in our bodies, regulates the functions of all of our organs, and helps the meridians, blood vessels and other fluids to flow freely. The form originated 1,700 years ago and has been proven safe and effective through generations and tens of thousands of people practicing in China and all over the world. This course has been taught at Wen Wu School of Martial Arts for 25 years and is coming to the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
