Dear Members and Friends,

CICC is glad to share an article by its media partner Shanghai Daily.

Shanghai Daily is releasing the micro-movie “Breathe Better, Breathe China” at the time when the whole world is still battling the COVID-19 pandemic to elaborate the health benefits of daoyin, a series of body-and-mind exercises such as tai chi to refine qi (energy flow). It is well known as a soft style of Chinese martial arts.

The micro-movie tells the story of Neo, who’s a big fan of Chinese culture, especially its food and art. Neo came to Shanghai from Canada, hoping to be apprenticed to learn the ancient art of kung fu.

With clues left by his best friend, Neo got up early to explore the city, trying to find the mysterious kung fu master. To his surprise, he discovered that almost everyone in the city was a master, from a 9-year-old child to a man in his 70s, from a waitress at a teahouse to an ordinary worker. More interestingly, these “masters” in one accord transform into a cute panda when showing their specific kung fu skills. Enlightened by these “Panda masters,” Neo finally discovered that Chinese breathing is the secret behind kung fu.

If you like this movie, follow panda Qiqi to practice exercises featuring Chinese breathing, which was customized by Professor Yao Fei from the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The workout can be done within a minute so that you can practice anytime, anywhere. Eight basic movements draw inspiration from four different animals — tiger, deer, bear and bird — and are easy to remember. Professor Yao believes that with frequent and regular practice, it can improve your health, especially enhancing blood circulation, soothing muscle strain and improving sleep and digestion.

 

Kind Regards,

CICC Team
