This qigong practice naturally stimulates the Earth element of your body in accord with Chinese five-element theory.

It consists of six beautiful and graceful continuously-circling movements done from a standing position. You don't move your feet, and yet you exercise every part of your body. You repeat each movement the same number of times, ideally 20.

Through it you learn to become more balanced, centered, and stable - like Earth. You also learn how to integrate all of the other elemental energies of your body - Water, Wood, Fire, and Metal - as Earth does.

The movements of Gods are relatively easy to learn and are especially helpful in releasing the neck, shoulders, and upper back.  
 
Gods becomes a more and more advanced practice as you learn to put ever more sophisticated and subtle energy development practices inside its movements. Ultimately, it becomes the most advanced and powerful qigong practice that we teach.
