About the class

IMAGEThe Eight-section Exercises date back to the Song Dynasty (960-1279) and its easy movements and impressive effects on health make it a gem in China’s health and fitness culture. Purpose of the exercises is to increase internal energy circulation through spiritual cultivation and physical exercises so as to improve health and fitness.

Deep natural breathing is required during the practice of the routines, without any constraint. It has been proved that practice of Ba Duan Jin improves the respiratory system, limb strength, and flexibility of the joints, fortifies the nerves as well as enhances the general balance.

It improves the cardiovascular function and helps to cure such illnesses as coronary artery scleroses and osteoporosis. It strengthens one’s immune system to a degree, delays the aging process, and also improves one’s mental health.
