I am Yang Hui Kuen, from Sungai Petani. I have been practising Bai Yin Qigong for 3+ years, since 2016. I have completed all the Essential Courses. Initially, my intention to practise Qigong was simply to find a healthy approach to exercise, to motivate myself. My father once advised that “to take care of one’s own health, is a responsibility towards self, loved ones and family”. His words influenced me deeply. Hence, I told myself that I want to be completely in control of my own health.
Flashing back my memories, I am able to persevere in my Qigong practice up until now, because I cannot do without group practice. I know that my own understanding is insufficient. I am aware that when I practise on my own, my movements are not up to mark, and the impact is greatly reduced. Therefore, I committed to join the weekly group practice, even though I might be practising blindly. If I was aware of it, I definitely did not miss the opportunities to attend the enhancement or training sessions conducted by the Instructors or Teaching Assistants who came from far away. I knew for certain that my understanding of the techniques and movements improved under their guidance and tutelage.
Group practice is caring, companionship and growth. I eagerly look forward to group practice every week, Not only can we improve on our techniques, we also bring together our righteous Qi in a good environment when we gather together. Each time, I can see everyone encouraging one another, or sharing together; and then, going home with a feeling of satisfaction and happiness.
In Sungai Petani, some of us have our rest days on Friday, and others on Sunday. In order to encourage all students to join the group practice, Sungai Petani holds 3 group practices in a week. I believe we are only official practice group in Malaysia that practices as a group 3 times in a week.
I am deeply grateful for the selfless dedication of the Teaching Assistants who sacrifice 3 days each week to serve and lead in the group practices. We certainly should be grateful. What other reasons or excuses can we give for skipping group practice ?
As the Leader of the Sungai Petani Group Practice, I hope other students will be like me formerly – take advantage of the group practices to improve on your techniques; or at least, to take control of your own health; to fill yourselves with mighty righteous Qi; and to be abundantly blessed, physically and emotionally.
“The Masters bring the knowledge to our doors, but to practise is up to the individual.”
I thank both our Masters for imparting to us such an amazing Qigong technique.
Brothers and Sisters in Sungai Petani, the group practice needs your support. Come, let us learn, grow and share together. Let us “add oil” (jia you)!
