Seasonal
Qi Gong

The Key to Optimal Health and Vitality

In ancient China, Daoist Sages and Yogis observed and catalogued correlations between planetary movement, the seasons and energetic fluctuations in the energy fields of human beings. These profound observations of natural processes became an integral part of Chinese Medicine and Nourishing Life (Yang Sheng) practices, including Seasonal Qi Gong.

Chen Tuan, a Daoist sage in the 11th century expanded upon these ideas in order to create Seasonal Qi Gong. Derived from Daoist yogic practices, these 24 simple exercises, one for each 2-week period, provide a sophisticated form of exercise that will keep you healthy throughout the year. These easy-to-learn exercises stimulate the meridians, and organs, and help to prevent stagnation of energy, pain and injury.

In this course, noted author, Qi gong expert and Chinese medical practitioner Tom Bisio will show you exactly how and when to perform each Qi Gong exercise, so that you can immediately begin to reap the benefits of living in harmony with the seasons. Detailed and clear video instruction is accompanied by written materials that help to elucidate fine points.

Seasonal Qi Gong is more than just a Qi Gong exercise class!

In this course you will also learn Five Bonus Health Practices that optimize your practice and maximize your vitality.

Tom will teach you:

Meet the author

I’m Tom Bisio, creator of the Seasonal Qi Gong Online Program. This program is the product of almost 20 years of research and practice. In addition to scouring through hundreds of volumes and thousands of scattered references about Qi Gong and Seasonal Health, I made numerous trips to China to study with martial arts masters and advanced Chinese medicine practitioners in order to bring these practices together into a single unified course, which I am excited to share with you.

The knowledge and insights gained during those trips, as well as my experiences teaching Qi Gong, martial arts and Chinese medicine in the United States and abroad have influenced this program. The exercises and supplemental information contained in this course are profound in their sophistication and insight, both into the natural world and nature’s subtle, yet powerful effects on the human body, mind and spirit.

What is Seasonal Qi Gong and why should I learn it?

Seasonal Qi Gong is one of the most powerful of the Chinese Life Nourishing (Yang Sheng) methods. This course is a distillation of practices that were developed over centuries by Daoist sages, physicians and yogis who were able to see deeply into the patterns of nature, and understand the connection of human beings to those patterns. From these deep insights a series of simple, yet profound Qi Gong exercises and health practices were distilled. These exercises can literally transform your health and your outlook on life.

Seasonal Qi Gong teaches you to harmonize with the seasons in order to increase your vitality and prevent disease. But the implications go even deeper – taking advantage of the tidal surges in the cosmic energy around you literally allows you to ride the fluctuating waves of Qi that are present at different times of the year, allowing you to short-circuit emerging illnesses before they manifest, and address chronic illness when it is most responsive to treatment. This course will provide you with the knowledge and know-how to take advantage of these power energy fluctuations in order to improve your health and increase vitality.

More than just a Qi Gong course, this program contains many Bonus Health Practices, including how to live harmoniously with the seasons and the secrets of Chinese seasonal health teas.

While there are some advantages to learning in a classroom setting, there are also disadvantages. For example, once the class is over, you don’t have the teacher there to help you in your daily practice. Our experience is that in a classroom setting, students often have difficulty remembering corrections they receive. In an online program you can go over the detailed instruction and corrections again and again via the pdf and videos. A common complaint from students in a classroom setting is that the class moves too slowly or too quickly, or not enough time is spent on certain exercises which are particularly difficult. So another advantage of our online learning program is you can learn at your own speed.

Seasonal Qi Gong is suitable for students of all levels of ability and experience. Seasonal Qi Gong enhances other meditative and Qi Gong practices and can be performed concurrently with them.

Starting January 1, 2015, the European Union (EU) made a major change to its VAT regulations, that now requires businesses to pay VAT according to the locations of consumers. This law was meant mainly for large companies that have been avoiding higher taxes by establishing presences in places with lower VAT. Unfortunately, the regulation change also put a burden on independent creators who sell digital products to customers in Europe.

We’re unhappy with this new law as it puts a large burden on us, and you, the customer, end up paying more. However, we are forced to comply with the new law. We use Gumroad as the payment portal because they are reliable and trusted, and in addition they now collect the VAT automatically. We do not personally collect or receive the VAT. The VAT is collected by Gumroad and distributed to the proper authorities in each country by Gumroad.

If you are also unhappy with the new VAT law, we suggest you contact the appropriate local representative in your country.

The videos will be accessible indefinitely. We are committed to maintaining your ability to gain access to them.

It is not possible to answer everyone’s questions about training and many questions are impossible to answer through words alone. We encourage you to practice the material as many questions can only be answered through practice. We do offer workshops periodically in New York City and Europe, so if you feel the need to fine-tune your practice, it might be useful to attend a workshop in person.

Some of the diet and activity advice is suitable and very useful for children and teenagers and can help their development and growth as they move through the cycles of seasons and years. 

In general, young people do not need health maintenance exercises beyond their normal activities of running, walking, hiking, climbing and sports or martial arts. There is the exceptional young person who might benefit from these exercises, however, they should be recommended to that person by an experienced teacher or a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine.
