Shibashi set two is a qigong set of 18 moves, simple to learn and perform but extremely effective for improving health. This set follows on from the previous set and you will see some commonality between them if you have studied the previous set.
The sets were developed by Chinese master Lin Hou Sheng and comprise movements taken from qigong and mainly Yang style tai chi forms. They each have specific functions to improve qi movement around the meridians, thereby improving health and preventing illness in the same way as acupuncture.
The course is easy to follow via video and spoken narrative, with slow motion for more difficult aspects of the movement (where appropriate). The set can be learnt fairly quickly, however the student must practise regularly to improve the effectiveness of each movement.
People learn qigong for a variety of reasons; mostly because they already have a condition that they wish to help improve, but in reality it works as a preventative system of simple exercise that relaxes the body and mind, without the hard work and exhaustion of other exercise programmes.
For the less able, it can also be performed seated. Students are advised to seek advice from their GP before taking up any form of new exercise programme, however the majority of GP's advise their patients to start practise of tai chi (qigong) as it is recognised as a good way to exercise safely.
- This is for anyone wishing to learn a simple but beneficial Qigong set, no experience required
- Anyone less mobile or able can perform the movements in the seated position
- If in any doubt about your health and suitability of these moves, consult your GP/Doctor
In this first lecture you can meet the course tutor and designer, Andy Wright. You'll see and hear about his life and work, with testimonials from real people/students (he teaches classes daily as well as on line). His work encompasses teaching in NHS hospitals as well as Sport Centres and for charitable organisations such as Parkinson Society and MS Society.
In 2014 he had major back surgery that did not go right, and subsequently could not WALK and working was nearly impossible. But his recovery was entirely due to diligent practise of qigong daily and now, 2 years later, he is able to ditch the rollators and wheelchairs for a single stick. The prognosis is not good, because it is likely that he now requires another operation due to loosening screws causing pain.
Welcome to Shibashi Qigong Set Two. I was introduced to this series by my Shiatsu instructor Chris Jarmey. It formed an important part of our energy warm up and fitness routine before treatment of clients.
Simple to learn and practise, you should make time everyday to run through the 18 moves, performing 6 or 12 of each move.
In this lecture we'll show you a very brief overview of the history and benefits of practising Shibashi.
Movement Five is all about casting the net wide and round, in the real life scenario of fishing. The documentary TV channels are good for showing the exact actions required for Chinese fishing on their programmes about the traditional Chinese people. The net in question is 3-4 foot in diameter, and thrown aside a narrow boat in which the operator stands.
Movement Six is the first of the more challenging moves in this set. The combination of arms and cross-legged stances, will require attention and practise.
