The Spirit of Qi Gong video is an inspiring instructional journey into the Chinese art of self healing. These simple yet powerful exercises combine breath, gentle movements and visualization to increase health, reduce stress and slow aging. Unlike yoga or Tai Chi, the benefits of a regular qi gong practice are experienced immediately and are easy to learn for beginners of all fitness levels. Viewers report better sleep, less stress, more energy, greater stamina and mental clarity, enhanced memory and a revitalized sex life. Women find the practice helpful in dealing with a variety of common conditions, like headaches, fatigue, PMS and menopause.

The video is filmed in beautiful natural settings, reflecting the essence of the 5 Elements in Chinese medicine. Since understanding ones' connection with nature is an integral part of qi gong, this is not intended to be a linear presentation of the exercises as seen in studio videos. "The Spirit of Qi Gong" captures the Qi (healing energy) of each element and explores the emotions, health imbalances and the healing sounds associated with the organs/energy systems of the body. A booklet is included which helps the viewer design their own practice according to their health needs and challenges. With only a 15 minute daily practice, viewers experience increased energy and vitality, enhanced performance and inner peace.

Director/Producer Deborah Davis is a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist and medical intuitive. She teaches qi gong nationally and specializes in women's qi gong.
