The Forms: 13 Luohan Postures


Shaolin Luohan Style Qi Gong (Shi San Shi Luohan) is a set of 13 postures/movements that was developed by Shaolin Monks, after contemplating and imitating different forms and expressions of Luohan (Arhat) statues in the monastery. 

It belongs to the classic repertoire of Qi Gong exercises in the Shaolin Arts around the globe. In comparison to the 8 brocades (Ba Duan Jin) and the Muscle and Tendon Transformation Excercises (Yi Jin Jing), the movements in this set  can also practically be applied for martial application. Together with the other Qi Gong sets, this routine develops a strong and flexible core and increases body awareness and the ability of mobilising force.

There's a final point for all of these practices:

Increase your life quality: Get less sick, Regenerate faster, Improve your vitality, Increase your health! Better sleep, less anxiety, more joy!

Enjoy your training!
