Those who practise Dayan Qigong, on the other hand, have a large and varied system that provides them with many skills to practise, with a wide range of forms that are challenging enough, but not too hard to practise later in life, that are sophisticated in terms of the knowledge that has gone into them, and interesting enough to keep body and mind pleasantly engaged. They are lucky.
Health is something we often fail to notice until it's gone; it's not a matter of being especially muscular, looking great in lycra, nor is it about the shoes you wear, being healthy involves being able to recover from inevitable contact with viruses or bacteria relatively quickly, being able to catch yourself easily if you stumble, recover from over-exertion or minor injuries without serious inconvenience and generally have the resilience to get by in life without too many problems with the body or mind. If a Dayan Qigong practitioner does get ill, there are forms to practise to help with recovery or at least to delay the progression of a condition.
The Dayan Qigong system has proven its worth over a very long period: over 1800 years now, and its practitioners benefit from the accumulated knowledge of generations of earlier practitioners and teachers. We ourselves are of the 29th generation and we hope the system can continue for generations to enrich the lives of the people who practise it.
