Learn how to reach the highest level of physical fitness you can achieve, in just five minutes a day with Simple Fitness Exercises by Jiawen Miao.

Simple Fitness Exercises is a set of movements easier to learn than Tai Chi and Qigong, and just as effective for improving your health as aerobics and yoga. The author, Jiawen Miao, has practiced Kung Fu, Qigong, and Chinese fitness exercises since he was a teenager. He studied at the famous Ermei School of Martial Arts in China for four years and has taught Tai Chi Chuan and fitness exercises throughout the United States. In Simple Fitness Exercises he presents techniques where you don't need a teacher, great physical strength, or even much flexibility.

All of the exercise combinations emphasize the importance of circulating chi , the life-force linked to the breath that plays a vital role in Tai Chi and in East Asian martial arts. A series of photographs illustrates each set of exercises. The techniques consist of dynamic standing and even sitting poses that use slow transitional movements from one posture to another.

Rehabilitate from injuries, rejuvenate the body, gain flexibility, and restore movement
