Lineage

Zhan Zhuang is one of the most powerful forms of Chi Kung (or 'Qi Gong'), an ancient Chinese health system that regulates and nourishes the body’s 'Chi' or internal energy.

Zhan Zhuang is the art of Recharging your body's Batteries


Profoundly regenerative, Zhan Zhuang enables the body's energy to circulate more freely and more powerfully than before; improving old injuries and medical conditions that might otherwise be more stubborn.

At the heart of the system are a series of standing postures, sometimes referred to as “Standing Like a Tree”. This name was given to the art by Master Lam Kam Chuen, who first brought it to the West.


Standing like a tree For those who find standing difficult, the postures can be adapted for sitting or even lying down... so anyone can try!

Suitable for any age or level of fitness

A little patience is required at first but once you begin to feel the benefits, you will find that Zhan Zhuang can be a treasure for life.

Zhan Zhuang is also the foundation training to Da Cheng Chuan, a very powerful martial art. For martial use or for health, the early training is the same. Like the caterpillar in its cocoon, slowly the body is being transformed from within.
