The 8 Brocades, a popular system of exercises from QiGong, are eight meditative graceful sequences from the Far East. The flowing, soft, slow and round movements, in co-ordination with the breath, have a positive influence on the organs and harmonizing the energy system. This DVD is produced with the intention of refreshing the 8 Brocades, with each of the movements and the associated breathing accompanied by Raja’s voice.Daily practice of the 8 Brocades is an ideal way to support your sense of well-being, inner relaxation and awareness of the subtle body energies.
