Possibly the most popular Qigong exercise in the world, the Eight Treasures (or Ba Duan Jin as it is known in China) has an ancient tradition which stretches back to the founder of Zen Buddhism; Bodhidharma. Seeing that his monks were tired from extensive meditation, Bodhidharma composed a set of exercises to give them energy and strengthen their bodies.
Hundreds of years later, a Shaolin monk took the eight most effective moves, and these are the exercises demonstrated on this DVD. They are also taught in Instant Health: The Shaolin Qigong Workout For Longevity book.
