Energy Gates is our most fundamental qigong set. Its practice naturally stimulates the water elemental energy of your body in accord with Chinese five-element theory.

Through a standing meditation practice, and the Cloud Hands, three swings, and spine stretch exercises, you’ll learn to let your energy flow downward—like water—toward the earth.

You’ll also learn to "dissolve" your body’s tension and pain, as well as how to maintain healthy posture for maximum energy flow.
