The Eight Brocade Exercise (Ba Duan Jin)
The Eight Brocade is mentioned in Chinese Song Dynasty ( 宋朝 Sòng cháo; 960–1279) to improve health and well being of the solders fighting against the Mongolian.
Variously translated as Eight Pieces of Brocade, Eight-Section Brocade, Eight Silken Movements or Eight Silk Weaving, the name of the form generally refers to how the eight individual movements of the form characterize and impart a silken quality (like that of a piece of brocade) to the body and its energy. There are different postures such as sitting or standing; each section can be practiced on its own and each targets a specific organ or health need. The movements can vary greatly according to different schools.The Eight Brocade Exercise (Ba Duan Jin)
The 8 Brocade movements Master Teresa Yeung will be showing you are the ways taught by her teacher, Grandmaster Weizhao Wu. As a lady, she likes you to just enjoy practicing for its stretching benefits, building the Chi and focus less on positioning so well like a kung fu routine.
Some of the 8 movements are:
- Two Hands Reach Skyward to Balance the Triple Burner
- Open the Bow to Shoot the Big Eagle
- Raise Arm to Regulate the Spleen
- Look Behind to Cure Fatigue and Injuries
You will enjoy every movement from beginning to the end.
Lots of good energy !!
