Nei Gong is a process which practitioners use to move through a progression of purging, tonifying and regulating at a foundation level to:
- Regulate the body, through relaxation, lengthening, and stretching
- Regulate breathing to control relaxation and release
- Regulate the circulation and flow of energy
These principles underscore Lotus Nei Gong’s Level 1 Nei Gong syllabus, which leads students through the Nei Gong process with Qi Gong practices including but not limited to:
- Song breathing practices
- Hunyuan Qi Gong
Wu Dao Yin
- Daoist Vocal work
Later stages of the Nei Gong process include the propositions of Yin/Yang separation and Qi consolidation. Eventually, practitioners address the deeper aspect of Qi governance.
