Book Review: Qigong Illustrated By Christina J. Barea
Published by Human Kinetics
It isn't uncommon for fitness professionals to blend a variety of fitness modalities into a workout -- throwing in a bit of yoga at the end of a cardio or strength session is a good example. However, sprinkling in a Qigong (pronounced chee-goong) sequence into workout is beyond the range of expertise for most of us. Qigong Illustrated, a new book at Human Kinetics, can help. This book won't make you and expert, but with it's clear explanations and fabulous illustrations, Qigong Illustrated can give you a peak into the meditative world of Qigong that you can share with clients. Clients will appreciate learning these new techniques to combat stress and improve self-awareness.
