Qigong for Beginners

Available worldwide

Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that can be described as meditation with movement; a conscious form of exercise. It is not just physical exercise, but a transformative and holistic health care system. Qigong helps you to cultivate chi, with slow movements, smooth breathing and visualization, in order to enhance the body’s natural healing abilities. Sincere practice with the intent to gain balance and sensitivity is key to experiencing the full benefits of Qigong. Garri and Daisy Garripoli guide you through the fundamentals of Qigong with Swimming Dragon, Dragon Pearl, Bagua Xun Dao Gong , Zhao, Kun, and ends in typical Buddhist style with a self massage Qigong from the Shaolin temple.

Francesco Garripoli, Daisy Lee Garripoli

I practiced wing chin and tai chi like 15 years ago. My Sifu would also do chi gong exercises with us. After the baby and a divorce I though I was too fat and old to get back into this. I'm so encouraged after watching this video and the effects of chi are immediate. Thank you for making it easy beautiful and something I look forward to everyday. Even my 8 year old boy gets involved!

I bought this DVD about 3 years ago after I first started hearing about Qigong. I totally love this video and all it teaches. Garri and Daisy Lee are so excellent. There is much to like about this video. The practice itself is both relaxing and stimulating at the same time.

The setting/scenery for the practice is gorgeous. In front of a lake (or some body of water) surrounded by mountains. Most people probably don't notice or even care but the music during the workout is so fantastic as well, I wish I could find out who does it and buy it on CD. The best part of the video are the hosts though. Garri does an excellent job of explaining the exercises/movements, and tells you what the movements are particularly good at healing as it relates to certain parts of the body/mind. I am usually able to work these movements into my schedule 4 time a week, but I hope to eventually do them everyday.

I was so happy with this video and the 2 hosts I looked for other material by them. I bought Qigong for Cleansing & Qigong for Stress Relief as well. Both are also excellent. I wish Gaiam would provide more online content by these 2.

What I enjoy most in this video is the explanation of each which movement helps specific part of the body. It helps me to emphasize the exercise which I need most.

The Francesco Garripoli and Daisy Lee Garripoli Qigong programs are incredibly well done and I only wish there were more routines to choose from!

Last night I took a Qi Gong class at the local library and wanted to get in another practice today. This was a well done video and very easy to follow. Excellent practice.

@jlwk22 - The cool thing about having options :). A combination of classroom and online seems to be the sweet combo to fit in workouts amidst all the busy. Yay!

I already had the Qi Gong for stress release at home (My mother gave it to me). I wanted a well rounded workout and this gave me what I was looking for. I am hoping that one for intermediates is available from Francesco and Daisy Lee. I really like their style of teaching and genuine love of Qi Gong. The only down point in the break between each exercise it is hard to keep focused.

I just did this workout for the first time and I feel both relaxed and energized at the same time! I'm really loving qigong and the verbally guided movements make it super easy to learn without having to watch the screen all the time. This one is definitely going to be a regular in my workout routine. I need the stress relief badly!!

I paid but can't get to the videos. It just keeps telling me to sign up. I called today and gave them a new debit card but I still can't see the videos. I'm interested in watching Qigong for Beginners but can't get it. In the past my password never seems to work and have to keep resetting it. No one is available on weekends. It is a poorly designed website. Who designed it - the people who designed Obamacare website? I have been using Netflix for 4 years and never had a problem. Not user friendly at all.

The videos do not move to the center. When You get one that actually comes forth with the PLAY box to press, nothing happens. It does not play. I have had them occupy just 1/2 of the left part of the screen. They jump around. Why did you make the change to this format? One cannot know how to find the videos when you have to click from 1 to 180 to get to the choices. We need to see a list of titles , and when we click on a title, we need to be able to play it. I can't use this site at all. It's just gotten progressively worse and less user friendly for sure. Please fix it. G. O. Los Angeles, CA.

I had tried Tai Qi but found myself wanting something a bit more spiritual or connected. This video has helped me find the beginning of what I have been looking for to reach a more spiritual plateau.

As a rookie, I am finding this workout to be very beneficial. I was experiencing a bout with siatica and after my first couple of sessions I felt much better. A great deal of the pain was gone. I am continuing to use this workout daily. Thank you very much for making it simple and fun!

I really enjoyed this workout. You can really feel the chi move as you go through the different elements of the routine. Highly recommend it!

With this wonderfully explained, joyfully presented and heart filled practice. I love the emphasize on the upper body. A great compliment to Yin Yoga.

I'm new to qigong and I found this was a great introduction. It was easy to follow, the instructions were clear and at the end I felt that I had a full workout. I particularly enjoyed the massage segment at the end of the workout. I would definitely incorporate this into my workout routine!
