"Qi" energy is like water. If it doesn't flow, it stagnates.

My master always said to me that excess of fire in our life is killing us.


When I came to the US in 2000 and began teaching QiGong, the first thing I could perceive was how most of my students had been consumed by the excess of fire.

Please keep reading to understand what excess of fire means.

The vast majority of men already in their 40s have bulging stomach and joint problems.


Many of them in their youth were athletes, but the excess of high-impact exercises, poor eating habits, and not knowing how to breathe with conscience, put them on that platform of life.

Under the vision of Chinese medicine, the answer was very easy. Nobody had taught them how to do water exercises to create a harmonious body.


People with water deficiency are chronically exhausted, have dark eye circles, poor digestion, suffer hair loss, low resistance to infection, inflammation in the body, weak knees, rapid aging, and wrinkles.


Water Qigong is a practice of moving the (water) in the body with deep breathing, very relaxing and meditative. Water Qigong exercises integrate slow and graceful movements.

This ancient method of QiGong training requires a fluid form of breathing that focuses more on inhaling to recharge your body.


Water QiGong exercises nourish our body. Replenish essence and fluids, and accumulate reserves that can be stored in the body for future use.

Water Qigong training is deep and powerful. It can improve circulation within the body and develop slow-twitch muscles. It is best to practice when you feel fatigued and is ideal for people suffering from deficiency energy "Qi".

During all these years, I have students who have had the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of this art called Water QiGong.


Today, after 20 years of teaching in America, I am proud to say that I have students in their 60s, 70s, and 80s who have achieved the flexibility of bamboo and the spirit of a tiger!.

Finally, are you feeling stiff and inflexible? or even worse, are you feeling pain in your joints?


According to Chinese Medicine, after the age of 40, the body begins to lose water, and one of the results of the lack of water in our body is arthritis.

In the United States, 23% of all adults, or more than 54 million people, have arthritis.
