My friend Robert Peng, the world-renowned Qigong master you met in my recent podcast Qigong 101 & Beyond: 100 Day Water Fasts, Crazy Healing Powers, Qi Balls, Sword Fingers & More, is going to teach us the legendary Yi Jin Jing practice for 14 weeks as an online program called “Yi Jin Jing: 14 Weeks of Body/Mind Transformation”
Male or female, young or old, fit or unfit, Yi Jin Jing will tonify the soft tissues of your body, your fascia, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and even your bones and bone marrow. Yi Jin Jing is a powerful practice when it is performed on its own, but it is especially powerful when it is combined with Xi Breathing. The incorporation of various different breathing techniques is what makes Robert Peng’s version of Yi Jin Jing so transformational and truly unique.
