Forget about videos. While they can be GREAT reference tools, without the instructor actually there it is pretty difficult to properly learn any technique or form related stuff (you may be making critical mistakes, but without the teacher as an external observer you would never know).

However, with qigong, EVERYTHING can be qigong! Walking, tying your shoes, taking a p*ss... Just do it with the correct methods and intention and it becomes qigong.

I may upset the purists a bit, but if you look at the foundation of qigong theory, it can be applied to virtually ANY physical activity - if we are talking about waidan that is.

Neidan is a whole different story. Boys and girls, do NOT try this without a qualified instructor available...

Just my 2 yen.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming...
