Courses / Learn the Baduanjin (Eight Silken Pieces) Form
What is Net of Knowledge?


This course consists of thirty videos. It starts with two introductory practices - the first to mobilise the joints of the body and the second to cultivate the 'qigong state - characterised by deep integration of body, breath and mind. Each of the eight moves of the baduanjin (eight pieces of brocade or eight silken movements) is then explored in detail, starting with preparatory neigong (internal skill) practices to deepen understanding of each move. Once each move is learned, you can join in with the video exhibiting the smooth sequence of the whole form.

Additional videos discuss the practicalities of regular practice, how to develop lower abdominal (dantian) breathing, how to practise core qigong standing and much more, including an exploration of the history of qigong and an overview of why it is such a profound practice.

*CEU/CPD ApprovalsSome accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days. We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top. Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request. If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course.
