Xui Mingtang

Zhong Yuan qigong is considered the most ancient of all the open qigong directions of the Chinese art of healing the body and expanding consciousness. Zhong Yuan Qigong methods are more than 7 thousand years old. The system includes exercises and meditations combined with various breathing methods. At the moment, the successor of the line of succession of this school is Master Xu Mingtang, President of the Beijing Kundawell Medical Research Institute.

Zhong in translated from Chinese means "center", "middle ", "middle way".The yuan is interpreted as the original one. Qi is the original energy.

The system does not belong to religious trends and does not support various ideologies. It is available for people of all ages and health conditions. Zhong Yuan qigong is a holistic science that awakens human capabilities.

Master Xui Mingtang likes to tell a Chinese fairy tale: "There was a frog in one well. And she said, "I know how big the sky is. And I know how much water there is. One day the frog got out of the well and went to the sea. And she went crazy because she saw such a big sky and so much water. Therefore, a person has two ways: the first is not to go anywhere, nor to get acquainted with anything new and stay in place, and the second is; Step by step to explore this big world...".

The exercises are demonstrated by Master Xui Mingtang.
