Course Overview

This is a Live Webinar event that will be held on October 7, 2023 - 10am PDT, 1pm EDT.


This 4-hour class will cover the foundations of Medical Qigong. Eight Pieces of Brocade will be used to apply these foundational principles. Eight Pieces of Brocade (8POB) is a form of medical qigong in that it is widely practiced for health. Each movement is relatively easy to learn which will allow plenty of time to focus on the principles in each move.


Functional anatomy will be discussed for clarity on when to prescribe certain movements and how to modify them for patients with injuries.


In addition to the material in class, students will have access to a comprehensive library of reference videos.


Students new to Qigong and functional movement systems should start with this class. In this class, you will learn:


(1) Basic spinal wave to increase spinal mobility, mobilize each spinal segment, increase circulation at each back shu and huatuojiaji point, and enhance the movements in each of the 8 movements in 8POB.

(2) Scapular mobilization and stabilization and its relationship to expansion of the ribcage and to shoulder and neck health.

(3) Core activation and training and its relationship to stability and mobility of the spine.

(4) Mobility of the zangfu.

(5) A model of movement based on the channel sinews (jingjin), how related channel sinews guide functional movement patterns, and how these channels influence movement of the organs.


The recordings will be made available for you to review after the event!
