What is Shibashi?
Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice that has been shown to have many positive benefits. The most popular form of Qigong nowadays is Shibashi, a form of Qigong that can be practiced by anyone. Shibashi Qigong is believed to promote self-healing and good health by improving the flow of energy through the body.
The workout is as simple as moving one’s arms and legs and in simple yet fluid movements. The exercise is relatively easy and anyone can practice it without any previous knowledge or experience with Qigong, Tai Chi or any physical movement of any kind. Despite it being simple and accessible, Sibashi is still engaging, enjoyable and very beneficial for health and total wellbeing.
