Standing Meditation

F sm

Standing Meditation or Zhan Zhuang literally means "standing post".

It's a training method in which static postures are held to develop correct structural alignment, to develop efficiency in movement and allow maximal strength for martial applications. When combined with Qigong breathing exercises it helps to develop deep levels of relaxation and body awareness, and helps remove blockages and increase circulation of internal energy (Qi).

This practice has many health benefits such as improving posture, calming the mind, and improving breathing patterns.
