The 8 treasures is a unique Qi Gong (also known as Chi Kung) style that was formally organized around 2,000 years ago and was transmitted by the Ni Family through an unbroken succession of 74 generations of Taoist masters. The form is comprised of 32 movements arranged in 8 sections.
These movements combine toning and strengthening, stretching and breathing techniques for the purpose of maintaining health and preventing disease.
The Eight Treasures Qi Gong form is based on the natural motion of the planets and stars as well as on the simplicity and power of Mother Nature. As our bodies are a small model of Nature, by focusing on maintaining a smooth flow of Qi (Chi) in our bodies, our small universe can begin to attune to the greater rhythms of the Universe, thus creating health.
