What struck me when I first read this book was the elegance of its words, the easy wisdom of the ideas expressed by its creator, and the beautiful blend of Eastern philosophies with the modern world that filled its pages...
Qigong in Yoga Teaching and Practice will not only widen your horizons and open your heart, it will inspire you to deepen into yourself, to taste the beauty of life as it flows through you, and will likely help you to feel simply more energetic, and equally more calm, at the same time.
Joo Teoh's book is a pearl of universal wisdom, spoken from a deep well of penetrating insight. Highly recommended. -- Max Strom, International Breathing Teacher and author of A Life Worth Breathing, and There is No APP for Happiness
Here is a book which gives the reader a glimpse into what the world looks like through the lens of a profound, practical and insightful Chinese culture. How lyrical and rich the Chinese language is in describing our body, the meridians, nature and our relationships. With Joo's cultural experiences, growing up in Malaysia, a country with Chinese, Indian, British and Malay roots and having an education in the West and living in Malaysia, the U.S.A., the U.K., China and France with a practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine and yoga, what better person to describe and explain the philosophy of Qigong in the practice of Yoga. -- Dr. Marie Shieh * FRACGP, Anna Bay, NSW Australia *
