The Art and Skill of Modifying Qigong videos 
Qigong is the art and skill of working with the body, breath, mind, and subtle energies to attain health, vitality and longevity. A good Qigong practice is best if it is pleasant, energizing, fulfilling, interesting.
For some people, even the simple moves of basic Qigong can be too much for them. Perhaps because of an injury or chronic problem, they can’t lift a shoulder, or turn an elbow. Or standing up to practice may be overwhelming. Or maybe they are so tired they can’t put much thinking energy, much mental focus on even slightly involved movements. The light exercises that are fairly easy to learn are yet too much to perform. In such cases, self-healing Qigong videos can be modified to even simpler, easier formations. They can still benefit from practicing some qigong videos. Qigong, properly approached will give them gifts of healing so they can get past their pain, tiredness, confusion, recent illness, or recent trauma.

The problem with theories is that many disagree with each other... and many aren't proven... such is the way of theories.
 For my personal practice which is influenced by many Masters who I studied with includes a routine of Qigong videos energy harmonizing and physical stretching immediately after waking. Yes, this means before you check emails or make phone calls or eat breakfast. This is a great way to set your "resonance" for the day. I also do a shorter set right before I go to bed. Again, this is the last thing you do to set your resonance for sleep... so after you brush your teeth and after emails and so forth. I usually only spend 15 minutes on this sessio…
