Wudang Five Animals Qigong
Wudang Wuxing (Five Animals) Qigong is an ancient Taoist exercise designed to improve one's health and longevity. As the name implies, the movements of this exercise are based on the movements of five animals; the dragon, the tiger, the leopard, the snake, and the crane. Each animal movement improves the function of a specific internal organ. The Dragon improves the Kidneys, the Tiger improves the Lungs, the Leopard improves the Liver, the Snake improves the Spleen, and the Crane improves the Heart (Yin Organs).

Through dedicated practice, Wudang Five Animals Qigong has the capacity to bring balance back to one's internal organ system. When the internal organs are in balance, the body is able to work at its optimum efficiency, thus improving the overall health and longevity of the practitioner.

In addition to bringing harmony back to the internal organs, Wudang Five Animals Qigong also opens up the joints, lengthens the tendons, and strengthens the muscles. Furthermore, this ancient exercise improves the functions of the respiratory and circulatory systems as well; this not only allows the body to deliver fresh, oxygen-rich blood to all the extremities of the body but it is also assists with the elimination of deadly toxins. The overall function of Wudang Five Animals Qigong is to the body soft and supple, like that of a child. If practiced regularly, this exercise can literally reverse the aging process so that one can enjoy the benefits of strong and healthy body well into their years.

The overall objective of this article is to introduce the practitioner to the many benefits of Wudang Five Animals Qigong, and to compliment the video to provide the practitioner with a solid base for practice. This article will cover eight key elements necessary for practice: opening movements, dragon movements, tiger movements, leopard movements, snake movements, crane movements, closing movements, and standing meditation. In addition, basic principles for practice will be included as well.

Principles for practice


Breath is probably the most important part of the Wudang Five Animal Qigong practice. Qigong can be literally translated as "breath work" or "energy skill," and as mentioned earlier, the external flow of breath is a direct reflection of the internal flow of energy, therefore it is very important to be mindful of the breath. During practice, the breath should remain natural and comfortable; it should never be strained or stressed. In addition, the breath should also be in time with the movements; the inhale and exhale of the breath should act as the push and pull behind each motion. Proper breath is essential for effective qigong practice.


Only a small amount of space is needed to practice the Wudang Five Animal Qigong, but it is advised to find a clean and quiet environment for practice. Areas such as a beach, forest, or mountain side where the air is fresh and clean are ideal. Spaces that are crowded or busy are not recommended for it will be far too easy to be distracted.

Time and Frequency:

The full set takes approximately thirty to forty-five minutes to do correctly. If the time needed to do the whole set is not available, than only do a portion. It is far better to do only a few movements wholeheartedly than to rush through the entire set in a half-hazard manner. Furthermore, a consistent practice is necessary in order to experience real benefit; therfore this exercise should be practiced at least once every day.
