Zhan Zhuang Kung
While ideally, training should be done standing, it can also be done seated or even lying down - an ideal practice for those recovering from incapacity or illness.
The unobstructed flow of internal energy is what enables life to flourish, if the flow is blocked it stagnates. What blocks the flow of chi within our bodies is the tension in our muscles and nerves caused by illness and the strains of everyday modern life.

is internal, while externally little appears to be happening.
Zhan Zhuang Kung is said to be one of
the most powerful forms of chi kung. Its total approach will have an holistic effect on each person, improving all round health and well-
being, boosting the immune system and
relaxing the mind.
