Very nice. Will try this out and see how it works. I do Surya Namaskara before my morning meditation, which is somewhat similar in that it combines spine bending and pranayama. This Qigong exercise, however, seems much more relaxed and is probably much more suited - in comparison to Surya Namaskara - for individuals who are not so flexible and/or want a relaxed exercise with easy, fluid movement.
