With Sumner's guide as a source book, you are introduced to many useful techniques of self-awareness and self-cultivation. Some of the material is uniquely his; the remainder is useful in the way he draws it together into a single body of work. -- Journal of Asian Martial Arts As a practising craniosacral therapist and tutor Ged understands how important the simple things can be. It is a practical book that needs to be used and not just read. It includes clear and intuitive insights for getting the most out of your qigong exercises...This is an excellent book not only to serve as an introduction to qigong but also to help us gain clarity and reconnect with the basics. -- Tai Chi Finder You Are How You Move - Experimental Chi Kung. Practicing craniosocial therapist and chi kung teacher Ged Sumner beleives chi kung is the best kept secret on the planet. In You Are How You Move, Sumner says that exercise has long been considered as a stressful activity - in fact, he says in modern society there's an overwhelming tendency for everything to be stressful. That's where chi kung comes in. There's an alternative way to exercise that involves being gentle with yourself and enjoyable, while being no less powerful. You Are How You Move shows the reader, using photographs throughout the book, how to tap into their body, find the body's centre and spine, and listen to the message it gives them. Using this traditional and ancient form of Chinese movement, Sumner says we can become fit and healthy - vital, even - through opening and mobilising our body and joints. -- Australian Natural Health Recommended for any martial arts library. -- Journal of Asian Martial Arts
