It is a part of the so called Daoist Kunlun School which ismore than four millennia old. The essence is to imitate the strength and thegrace of the movements of a wild goose. Wild goose is known for itsunbelievable longevity so that is why the Daoists observed its life, habits andmovement in order to develop an efficient system based on their extensiveobservations.It has been passed down in secrecy throughout the numerouscenturies all the way to 1978 until Yang Meijun started teaching it publicly.She lived until 106 years old, and she kept promoting wild goose qigong evenafter her 100th birthday. Her son is the present lineage holder andhe resides in Wuhan in China.
The actual system is pretty comprehensive as it includes 72different forms. Only 11 movement forms and 7 different meditation techniqueswere taught publicly and they were incorporated into two books published byYang Meijun.

The basics of the system relyon the free flow of vital energy which is referred to as Qi.
