Jing Ling Yong Zhu Gong is a special but simple and easy Qigong form. It's created by Mr. Hu Jiuliang who serves as the Chair of Shanghai Qigong Rehabilitation Association. Jin Ling Yong Zhu Gong reflects the unique way by which Chinese people think and perceive the world. It asserts that plain basic concept be applied to everyday life, the balance of yin and yang be kept for the purpose of health preservation and ailment curing. The other purpose of it is to nourish Qi and to establish better morality.

Jin Ling Yong Zhu Gong constitutes three parts of practice:

Dynamic Exercise
Standing Exercise
Spontaneous Dynamic Exercise

Dynamic Exercise is a series of body movements, including separation
and closure of upper limbs and rise and fall of lower limbs. The movements follow the principle of looseness, calmness and naturalism, along with the theory of meridians.

All of these is to help the beginners understand and use traditional Qigong of China, and lay the basis for practice of standing. The characteristics of Dynamic Exercise can be summarized as follows:

Relax to dredge meridians
Calm to repose;
Find calmness in moving,
Carry Qi from start to end - without break like a ring without an end - symmetric in direction, soft, slow, and even - not stiff, not slack, smooth and natural - move as a clock, finish at one go

Standing Exercise based on the theory that human being has its shape, yin and yang are its basis, the balance of yin and yang leads to delightfulness. It emphasizes 'virtual on the top and solid at the bottom'.

Spontaneous Dynamic Exercise refers to uncontrolled movements of the Qigong-doer during the practice. It's the result of impact of Qi stirred by the Dynamic Exercise and Standing to dredge meridians:

'Where there is a pain, there is stagnancy of Qi and blood'

'Movement means removal of obstruction, no movements means unblocked meridians'.

This kind of movements do not cause harm because the doer is conscious. Besides, each doer is taught according to his own condition, so it minimizes the possibility of going wrong in practice. After such movement, the doer becomes so easy and calm that he has a pleasant mood, and his illness may be relieved. Therefore it goes that Spontaneous Dynamic Exercise is an excellent doctor, though there is so much benefit of it, learners must follow the rule of 'not overdoing it'

By this, it makes a learner enter into a Qigong state that is free from mind concentration. The learners breathe smoothly. Thus, they unconsciously bring their thought under self-control.
