The second basic exercise is called Refine Qi. In Chinese medicine, there is a concept of energy channels, meridians and Dan Tians – “energy fields”. On the first level, we will practice the lower Dantian. It is located in the middle of the abdomen just below the navel. Its function is to transform energy.
There are two ways to increase your own energy. The first is to use certain exercises that allow you to receive this energy from outside as we do in The Big Tree exercise. The second way is to generate the energy inside your body. If we compare it with eating, then the Big Tree exercise is getting nourishment, and Refining Qi is digesting it.
This is a very important and unique exercise. By doing this practice we increase our energy needed for improving the quality of our life.
