Of course some of these stances are rather difficult and most of them will never be used in the most basic QiGong form, the BaDuanjin, still, practising these additional stances will have the added benefit of strengthening your legs and willpower. You will find detailed instruction on how to perform these two stances correctly in The Beginner’s Book of Meditation and in the freely downloadable chapter on QiGong (see above). For he best results, you should practise your stances every day, in addition to your regular QiGong exercise.
