Qi is the vital energy that flows in the meridians (channels) of the body and regulates its fundamental functions, determining health, strength, psycho-physical well-being, longevity, and awareness.

Nei Qi Gong

In Taoism, Qi is used as a tool to access higher states of consciousness, recalling the Ling Qi (spiritual Qi) on the top of the head for a deeper connection with the whole

Nei Qi Gong

In martial arts, especially the "internal" Chinese ones, it has always been taught that the real strength is not the muscular one, but the subtle and explosive one of Qi (which grows with age instead of decreasing)

Nei Qi Gong

In Chinese medicine (the oldest in the world) all treatments and remedies are aimed at increasing and rebalancing the Qi in the body because this resolves the root causes of the main imbalances (instead of acting on the symptoms) and promotes long-term health and energy​

Nei Qi Gong

Today, the main holistic therapies are based on the same principle and, even when they do not expressly speak of Qi, they inevitably work on this energy to try to restore an optimal balance


..because the practices that are taught - in the West but also in the East, from Qi Gong to Tai Chi to Reiki - are now based on the mechanical repetition of movements and/or on too light physical sensations.

We don't really know why, but the direct experience of Qi has been lost: that powerful manifestation that a Master transmitted to his student so that he could truly understand and replicate it with practice.

Perhaps because of the tough selection still being made in China, to identify the few students deserving to receive the authentic practices.

Perhaps because the Chinese government itself tends to control these practices and to export only "light" Qi Gong for health (this would explain why many Chinese Masters are moving to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and neighboring countries).


The result is, in any case, that today we talk about Qi almost always theoretically.

There is no direct experience, for who knows how many generations both in the West and in the East, and this obviously limits the energy effects and benefits that can be obtained with the practice...

  • In Chinese health and longevity practices (such as Qi Gong), the energetic sensations are so light that we may have imagined them, and this makes it difficult to stay motivated in the long term (also because no one shows us the "point of arrival" to aspire to)

  • In holistic therapies, in the East but also in the West, many concepts about energy and the overall balance of the "patient" remain vague: no one gives us concrete tools to show and transmit this energy during treatments, in order to accelerate the healing and solve even deep problems

  • In martial arts, even "internal" practices are taught in a physical and muscular way (even in China, in the places where these practices were born), and often those who speak of Qi and "inner strength" are the least effective in combat (or refuses to demonstrate it).


"In 30 years of Qi Gong, I have never seen an actual emission of Qi. Then I met Master Zhou..."

Giorgio S.

My name is Giorgio S. and I have been practicing Qi Gong since November 1976. For about ten years I have practiced only external styles, with two different Masters, one Irish and the other Chinese. Meeting with a Master who practiced internal styles made me realize that practice is not just kicking and hitting and that there is a world where true strength is not in the physical matter, but there is another force that is much more powerful that does not diminish with aging. On the contrary, it increases more and more.


With this Master, I practiced intensely for 17 years, until his unfortunate premature death. After his death, I continued to practice following his teachings and meeting many (Chinese) Qi Gong masters, very famous in the West. Despite having practiced Qi Gong, with dedication and perseverance, for 30 years, I could not do or see a real Qi emission. I witnessed teachers blowing up their students with a single wave of the hand or just looking at them. When I asked to try it, they told me that I was not ready to receive Qi and that it would have been dangerous.

In my opinion, neither of them was able to emit Qi. It was mental conditioning that led the students to follow all the movements of their teacher. I must say that, despite various disappointments, I have always believed that there was a great force within us and that we only needed to find a way to use it. So I put myself, even with a bit of skepticism, to search the Internet for everything concerned about the Qi topic. I discovered Shifu Costantino's site and decided to enroll in Nei Qi Gong courses. In November, I was allowed to go to China and personally meet Master Zhou. It was like leaving a room where I have been locked up for years and finally seeing what's outside.


Master Zhou is a wonderful, humble, and kind person, with a great desire to teach all those who have the humility to learn. Without many rounds of words, he made me feel his Qi, and, without touching me, he did a Qi emission to me. I had seen Master Zhou emit Qi to other people, but feeling it myself was something that cannot be explained, and that makes you change completely. It is not about suggestions or sensations, it is not about "it seems that I feel something", it is an immense force that stuns and that few men in the world can dominate. I don't know where I can go on my new path, but now I really know that there are people who can teach me.


Giorgio S.


Shifu Costantino Valente, like many fans of oriental disciplines and martial arts, soon discovered the limits of widespread energy practices.


He started in 1975 with Judo and Ju Jitsu, then continued with Aikido and Kung Fu Shaolin when he moved to Rome for studying at university.


In those years he also approached the first energetic disciplines, under the guidance of Sifu Tong, attracted by the more “esoteric” side and by the unconscious certainty of the existence of unexpressed human potential.

In addition to study energy and martial practices, he also assisted his master in energetic therapies.


The curiosity for “internal” practices however gradually turned into distrust and then into strong skepticism, when over the years he did not see concrete results.

The explanations read and heard were always vague and the energetic sensations too mild to be called Qi.


So he gradually became convinced that Qi was a fairy tale, and that it was better to spend an extra 30 minutes with the boxing bag rather than doing breathing exercises or internal work.


He put aside energy practices and devoted himself completely to martial arts, deepening Tai Ji Quan and Karate and later Wing Chun and Escrima, which remained the core of his teaching for over twenty years.


In 1991 he started teaching and in 1998 he decided to devote himself full time to martial arts, becoming a point of reference for numerous schools and instructors in the region of Lazio and in other parts of Italy for San Yi Wing Chun, Lakas Escrima and then Tai Ji Quan (currently recognized as 7th duan by the Italian Traditional Kung Fu Federation).

Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong


In the mid-nineties, Shifu Constantino Valente learned the "Xing Shen Zhuang Gong" from an acupuncturist and started again his research in energy practices, also learning other internal styles such as Yi Quan, as well as deepening the practice of meditation.


The real turning point, however, only came when he discovered the existence of true Masters of Nei Qi Gong.


Despite a lot of initial mistrust, he was able to verify the power of Qi released by these masters, by traveling and meeting them personally in Thailand and then in China.


From lighting up a fire with bare hands to moving objects at a distance, from healing even serious illnesses to transmitting strong electric shocks of Qi, ideal for experiencing energy immediately.


These demonstrations, later confirmed by his own experience in the practice, were the important proof of everything he had always intuited from a young age and that led him to train with these Masters.

In 2005 he was in fact accepted as a direct student (Tu Di) by one of them, Shifu Luo. And he is currently one of the few in the world to know the complete method of this Master.


After completing the entire course with Shifu Luo, in October 2010 he was accepted as a direct student by another great master of Nei Qi Gong, Shifu Zhou.


In September 2013, his Master asked him to teach and spread his method in Europe. He is currently the only Westerner to know and share this method.

Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong


The Nei Qi Gong differs from the normal Qi Gong both for the effectiveness of the practice, which has preserved the original teachings and allows a direct experience of Qi, and for the goal.

In fact, the aim is not just to stay healthy, increasing, and rebalancing the energy in the body, but to accumulate more Qi than how much is needed for oneself, to: 


evolve spiritually by accessing higher states of awareness and a more free and harmonious life experience


give it to others through deep and often decisive therapies and treatments (Shifu Costantino Valente has been helping many people without charging them)


bring martial arts (of any style) to their maximum expression, combining physical strength with the explosive power of Qi (Shifu Costantino Valente has trained "behind the scenes" national and world champions, and masters of many disciplines)

No more crutches after two sessions ... 


I am a martial arts teacher and about two years ago, a student had a sprained knee while practicing wrestling on the ground. He immediately went to the doctor and after several investigations, he discovered that there were no breaks, and the cure he was given was: anti-inflammatories, crutches, and rest.


However, after a few days, since there were no improvements, I suggested to the student to meet Shifu Costantino Valente. I knew already that he had helped other people. The teacher made the student sit down and, through his hands, carried the electric current in some points of his leg. After less than an hour, he told us that he had done what he could, and if the student had some benefits from the treatment and still needed more help, he knew where to find him.


The amazement was that the student got up and left without using crutches, saying that it seemed that he had never had any problems. The truth is that the day after a little pain came back and took another session to solve the problem completely. 

Michele F.

The next day the knee returned to normal, thanks to the electrical energy carried by the master...

My name is Carla, I am 28 years old. About eight months ago, I had a problem with my right knee, for about ten days it was swollen, uncomfortable, and painful, and did not improve even when I was resting. And I could not take any medication due to breastfeeding. With a little fear, led by my husband, I underwent a therapy session with Shifu Costantino Valente.


The concern I had, in the beginning, turned into amazement when the teacher's fingers touched some points near the knee. Gradually, first light and then with more intensity, an electric current, transmitted by the master's hands flowed into my leg. I felt instantly a feeling of well-being and lightness in the knee, free from discomfort and pain. The next day, the knee returned to normal.

The great desire of Shifu Constantino Valente, after learning these practices, was to finally make them available to everyone.

In fact, especially for us Westerners (but not only), it is also a real challenge to learn them because:


  • You must be lucky enough to know authentic masters (there are now only a few in the world)

  • You have to travel to meet them, in China or in Southeast Asia

  • You must be accepted as direct students, to receive really important practices

  • The costs of these practices are usually in the order of thousands of euros each (you read that right!)

  • Chinese teaching is often chaotic and disordered, not very suitable for our Western minds

As if that were not enough, the rigid Chinese discipline starts from the assumption that a mass selection must be made to choose, among the many pretenders, the few really suitable to be educated in this path.

For this reason, preparatory exercises are imposed on the students which are extremely hard, often useless, and not at all appropriate to the subject of the teaching, for the sole purpose of discouraging those with a little will.

Those who pass these "tests" show that they are ready and have the right attitude to continue.

At that point, the teaching continues gradually and often instinctively, assuming that the student can dedicate his whole life to this and can practice for 7-8 hours a day.



When Shifu Constantino Valente started teaching Nei Qi Gong at the request of his teachers, he found himself having to translate this system for us Westerners, who have at most an hour a day to practice and want a clear and complete path.

This challenge was his luck because it pushed him to take a new direction.

Drawing on his 40 years of martial and didactic experience, he combined the integral teachings of his two masters and "extracted" the essence, observing on himself and his students:

  • which exercises are really effective to increase and emit Qi (and which ones only waste time)

  • in what order it is better to learn them and for how long each one must be practiced, before moving on to the next one, in order to see the energetic effects

The result of this work surprised him.

Nei Qi Gong's school is recognized by CONI in Italy and FEETAM

Nei Qi Gong School - Shifu Costantino Valente

What took shape is the first course of Nei Qi Gong, clear, complete, and organized, able to guide anyone from zero to the final result with 45-60 minutes of practice per day.

It is not only the best solution for us Westerners, who have little time.

It is a system that Shifu Constantino Valente has also been called to teach in China itself, because of the effectiveness and accessibility of the practice.

There are no selections, there are no prohibitive costs and all the exercises are suitable for all ages and physical conditions (being mostly internal exercises).

Today this system is taught throughout Europe by authorized instructors and, thanks to the results obtained by the students, it has been recognized in Italy by CSAIN (Sports Promotion Body recognized by CONI and by the Italian Ministry of Interior) and in Spain by FEETAM (Federación Española de Escuelas Tradicionales de Artes Marciales, recognized by the Spanish Ministry of the Interior).

The course is structured in 6 basic and 6 superior practices.

Each practice builds on the previous one and leads to an ever greater mastery of one's Qi:

Website Background_Home Page.jpg



XING SHEN ZHUANG GONG - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

With the first basic practice, we begin the study of a form of Qi Gong which comes from the Emei Shan tradition, which has multiple objectives.


Physically, it unlocks the circulation of energy through postural exercises that open the individual joints and free the meridian pathways. Some of these exercises can be physically intense.


This sequence is called XING SHEN ZHUANG GONG. It is "the method of the reunification of the Shen, the formless, the spirit that aspires to heaven, in the Xing, the container, the form, the framework."


A clear indication of how Qi Gong cannot ignore an important relationship between the animating energy and the animated body.


This apparently basic work is actually a complex system of exercises in which the mind directs Qi at key points in the Chinese energetic system, which are physically stimulated by specifically designed postures.


The practice of the true Nei Qi Gong leads to a relocation of the entire energy system to the Dan Tian, ​​the area below the navel, seen as a Qi reserve, a gold reserve to use in case of need or if launched towards higher goals of self-realization.


YANG QI GONG - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi GongYANG QI GONG - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

In the second basic practice, we see the first important breathing exercise, the YANG QI GONG, designed to develop the presence of Qi Yang in the body.


Good Qi in the Yang phase means having more vitality, strength, vigor, alertness, greater sexual abilities, and creates the necessary energy resource to be able to do the following practices.


This set of techniques includes the ability to control the breath, channeling Qi with the mind in key parts of the body's energy system, accumulating Qi, and helps to revitalize the lower doors of Qi.


ZHENG SONG DA FA - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

In the third basic practice, we find a form of meditation that opens the doors to both the fundamental forms of Taoist practice such as the Previous Heaven (Xian Tian) and the Later Heaven (Hou Tian).


The ZHENG SONG DA FA, or the "Erect Growth and Relaxation" method, both symbolically and physically, gives the practitioner the necessary tool to be able to perform silent meditations for a long time.


It gives the necessary concentration to remain alert and in the correct posture to allow the perfect flow of Qi in the body.


This is an ancient technique (it is said that the founder of Tai Ji Quan, Zhang San Feng was using this method) that implements the flow of Zheng Qi and the Jing Qi accumulation in the Dan Tian.


 ​This will allow forming the energetic accumulation point that will be filled up with Yin and Yang Qi through Nei Qi Gong practices, and that will give birth to the Dan, the pearl.


LING QI -  Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

In the fourth basic practice, an initiation is made to invoke the LING QI (Spiritual Energy). Transmission through specific symbols and sounds belongs to the Chinese tradition, as well as to many disciplines that have been developed in the spiritual and energy field in the Far East.


HOU TIAN XI - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

In the fifth basic practice, using the meditative structure we built previously, we begin to perform the breathing techniques called HOU TIAN XI, Postnatal Breathing, which follows the natural flow of air in abdominal breathing.


This technique is a great example of how, step by step, you can work on the Dan Tian, opening its doors and coming to have a tangible perception without false feelings of Gui Qi, illusory Qi.

The Dan Tian area will begin to jump spontaneously and, with the correct practice, the sensations often described in the texts, such as a natural vibration, the development of heat, the precise sense of a vital presence in the abdomen will become reality.


In the sixth basic practice of XIAN TIAN XI, we transform the horizontal breathing into a vertical one, reversing also the natural flows of Qi.

clases y seminarios En España:


The old ritual of acceptance of the new student takes place between the basic and superior practices. At this stage, the student becomes part of the internal school.


It is not necessary to finish the entire path to see its benefits. Each practice is complete in itself and improves not only your health but also your physical coordination, relaxation, breathing, psychophysical balance, energy level, in an evident way in your daily life.

The Nei Qi Gong path can guide you to the final result of emitting energy, but you decide how far you want to go, according to your personal goals. For sure, you have the certainty that the practices are extremely effective, and the path really works.

DIAN QI GONG - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

Always attentive to the possibility of absorbing and exchanging energy from natural elements, some Chinese teachers have studied the possibility of using electricity as an energy source in the last century, seeing and observing how, in fact, the most evident manifestation of Qi in those who have the ability to do the Fa Qi (to emit Qi), were a sensation of electric current flowing in the body.


This method, kept secret for a long time, produces:

- An acceleration of the processes of accumulation of Qi

- Achieving a high level of control over the entire nervous system, and being able to control even involuntary contraction of muscles even under electrical or pain stimulation


At the end of the practicing period, the practitioner can remain connected to electricity even at 220 Volts during the practice, without suffering any damage.


A method will be taught to do healing treatments using "finger electrical pressure".

Through physical contact between people, it will be possible to transmit appropriate electrical stimulation in specific points that activates the healing processes, which are decisive for many diseases.


This system is used in some Chinese hospitals by experienced Qi Gong masters, and it has been an important healing system for a long time.


LIAN GONG - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

In the second superior practice called LIAN GONG, energy circulation is directed in certain areas of the body, especially in the Lao Gongs, to stimulate them, and to increase global awareness of energy circulation.

3 - DA ZUO

DA ZUO - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

In the third superior practice, DA ZUO, continues the circulation of energy in the body in a sitting position, becoming aware of the path that joins the Dan Tian with the Lao Gongs.


TONG ZI GONG - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

In the fourth superior practice, TONG ZI GONG, the Jing is refined and the Qi is accumulated in the Dan Tian. The circulation and awareness of Qi in the body are enhanced. In this phase, it is possible to transfer energy to others by contact.


LIANHE DANTIAN - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

In the fifth superior practice, LIANHE DANTIAN, the three Dan Tians are joined together using two particular energy circulations and a specific breathing technique. The Fa Gong (Energy Emission) is practiced at this stage.

6 - SHEN GONG or XIANG GONG (Incense Technique)

SHEN GONG o XIANG GONG - Shifu Costantino Valente - Nei Qi Gong

The sixth superior practice, the SHEN GONG or XIANG GONG, is also called the "incense technique" because the individual practice begins with the use of particular incense sticks, and the duration of the practice is related to the duration of the incense.


The complete transmission of the symbol (FU or GONG), the recitation of an invocation, and the Mudras in which the hands are placed are at the center of this practice, which is known in its totality only by few people and gives the ability to transmit Qi at distance.


Finally, as the pinnacle of the teaching kept secret for centuries in restricted circles of esoteric Taoist schools, we convey a practice in which Hou Tian and Xian Tian intersect with the supreme recall of Ling Qi (Spiritual Energy).

I fully recovered from a serious chronic health problem...

I could speak for a long time about everything Shifu Constantino Valente and Nei Qi Gong have done for me. Over the years I have had the privilege of accompanying these Masters on their trips and spending a lot of time with them. Even today, Nei Qi Gong continues to be one of the most important practices of my life.


I fully recovered from a serious chronic health problem I had from birth (considered incurable by official medicine). I mastered my body and its functions in ways I could never have imagined were possible (but still infinitesimal compared to my Masters). I have acquired a level of energy that allows me to maintain a very high work rate and recharge quickly, thanks to which today I can easily guide an entire spiritual movement and take care of an incalculable number of people.


I was lucky in this life to meet many spiritual teachers and human beings out of the ordinary, but I can say that Shifu Costantino Valente and Nei Qi Gong are amongst the most precious treasures I have found. My words will never express the true gratitude I feel for them.

The Xing Shen Zhuang Gong is the most "physical" practice of Nei Qi Gong because it consists of 15 exercises that unlock the joints, improve posture and relaxation, strengthen the body and health, enhance concentration and self-awareness, and begin to increase and make energy flow in the body.

All the following practices are built on this because they rely on a body that is as healthy, energetic, strong, open, and balanced as possible.

That's why the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong is not only the first step of the path but an extraordinarily complete practice in itself.

It is the best Chinese exercise of health and longevity: some Qi Gong schools teach and practice only these exercises.

Also because the benefits involve the whole human being: body, energy, emotions, and mind.

Body-healthy (2).png

From the physical point of view: the 15 positions are similar to a deep massage that strengthens and relaxes the head, then the neck, then the shoulders, the back, the arms, the diaphragm, the pelvis, and the legs, opening the individual joints, eliminating pain and tension (cause of disease) and leaving a pleasant sensation of strength, dynamism, and well-being.


From an energetic point of view: the exercises unlock the energy circulation (freeing the pathways of the meridians), develop an awareness of key body points to move Qi. They increase energy and start to accumulate it in the Dan Tian, ​​the "energy tank" which is located below the navel.

Emotional (1).png

From an emotional point of view: every tension in the body corresponds to an emotional one, often linked to past traumas. To dissolve the blocks means to solve the traumas, to make "peace" with parts of yourself not yet integrated, and to rediscover more balance and harmony in your daily life.

Head (1).png

From a mental point of view: it is a practice that increases awareness, concentration, and mental presence because it focuses attention on subtle movements and deep sensations, helping you dwell more in the present moment (removing stress, distractions, and worries).

"The best strategy for daily well-being..."

This wonderful practice has been part of my morning routine for many years. I find it perfect to start the day because it awakens my body and increases my energy with a balanced mix of physical and mental work. Together with a healthy and empowering diet, it is the best strategy for daily well-being.


Francesca Forcella Cillo

Thus, in addition to energy and long-term health work, the practice brings benefits from the first weeks:

  • your immune system is strengthened and therefore you get sick much less

  • you release the joints and free yourself from the tensions that normally accumulate in the body, also improving posture and reducing pain in the cervical, lumbosacral area, knees, ankles, and so on.

  • internal organs become healthier and more efficient

  • rediscover new energy to do what is important to you, that you had lost getting older and/or due to a sedentary lifestyle

  • find the physical, mental and emotional center to live every day with balance, clarity, and peace

  • increase awareness and a deep sense of harmony and unity with yourself and with everything around you.

  • develop intuition, the ability to act faster and more effectively in life as well as in physical disciplines, without more indecision

  • by dissolving the tensions in the body, you also free yourself from the psycho-emotional blocks that were associated with those tensions, rediscovering new internal resources to face life in a better way

There are various versions of the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong. Some are very physical and more like gymnastics. What Shifu Constantino Valente teaches is the most energy-efficient one, compared to those he has practiced.



The 15 exercises in the sequence are suitable for any age and physical condition: the beauty is in the fact that you can do them for life, like for all energy practices.

The movements are slow and semi-static, generally soft and deep, but sometimes more intense to fortify the body.

They adapt easily to your abilities: demanding positions can be maintained for shorter or longer times. It is up to you to choose a challenging and strengthening physical work.


The ideal practicing time is between 45 and 60 minutes per day, in order to make rapid progress on both a physical and energetic level.

Depending on your goals and commitments, you are free to practice more or less: even done twice a week, the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong is an excellent health practice.

Hours of the day are also free: you can practice it whenever you prefer.

Many people choose in the morning to start the day full of energy, others in the evening to relieve the tensions of work.

After 3 months of constant practice, you can continue practicing the "Xing Shen Zhuang Gong" or move on to the next seminar: Yang Qi Gong.

To do this, you can attend a live seminar worldwide or do it easily from home via individual or group classes with Jiaoshi Andrea.

Online Group Class

As you probably know by now, my name is Jiaoshi Andrea. "Jioashi" means instructor. It is a name that I have been given by Shifu Costantino Valente, who authorized me to teach Nei Qi Gong and be an instructor of the Nei Qi Gong Fu school. I am an advanced practitioner of this discipline. 

I have a very special relationship with him. I help him in many ways, also as an English and Spanish translator during the online classes. I created music for Nei Qi Gong practices. I built the website of the school. We are in contact regularly because we have a strong student-teacher relationship in the "old way". I believe that is due to the fact that we have the same heart. 

The first Nei Qi Gong seminar called "Xing Shen Zhuang Gong" includes group class, study material, and ongoing support. During the seminar, you will learn a proven and millennial system that has brought great results to Nei Qi Gong students on a physical, energetic, emotional, mental, and spiritual level.

We will practice and learn together the 15 exercises of the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong, plus 2 preparatory exercises. My goal is to make sure that you will learn all the important details that are fundamental to the effectiveness of this practice.

I will explain and show you each exercise from different angles to capture every subtle movement. Then we will do it together and I will make sure that you do it properly. I do not give anything for granted: every movement to be performed, any inner sensation to be sought, mistakes to be avoided and any suggestion that can be useful for your practice.

The goal I have in mind is simple: allowing you to practice the 15 exercises of the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong correctly and effectively, without having doubts when you practice alone. After the class, you will be able to perform the whole sequence and practice independently on your own.


I will also share with you a link to a private area of my website where you can get access to and download the bonus study materials. The duration of the seminar is 4 hours, to make sure we dedicate the right amount of time to each exercise, and also have some short breaks to take rest if needed.


If you are interested in attending the seminar, and you would like to know more about it, I offer you a FREE 15 MINUTE CALL VIA WHATSAPP. We can even use the video (I personally prefer to speak face to face).

After we finish the online class, I will immediately send you an email with a link to a private area of my website and a password to get access to a video of Shifu Constantino Valente performing and guiding the entire sequence of the "Xing Shen Zhuang Gong", with my voice in English.

It is your point of reference during your practice: just press play and practice together with the video, with the right timing and without forgetting anything. This allows you to start easily with optimal practice sessions, and to memorize the sequence slowly.

After a few days or weeks, when you feel confident, you can stop following the video and practice on your own, following your feelings and times, and "sewing" the duration and intensity of the practice depending on how you feel (every day we are different).

In the private area of my website, you will also get access and be able to download the PDF containing a detailed explanation of the entire exercise sequence of the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong, including the two preparatory exercises.

It is useful to further clarify each exercise and to review them quickly, and remember each step even without using the video.



After we do our online class, my job does not end there :-) You can always contact me via Whatsapp or email and receive assistance about your practice. You can share doubts, sensations, questions, and I will reply to you as soon as I can (usually instantaneously).

Basically, you have become one of my students. And it is my pleasure and responsibility to verify your progress and help you, in a mature way, in your path of vital energy. This is not a system of "Gurus" and disciples based on dependency. I believe in giving people the right tools, making them responsible and independent. I am always available when it is needed.

I highly recommend Jiaoshi Andrea. He is a very patient instructor and he will pay very close attention to your movements and find mistakes fast to help you correct them during your training. He also gives you great study material to make sure you are successful in mastering the training. Overall, great Nei Qi Gong instructor and course.

Thomas Carter (USA)

Yesterday I learned the intricate and complex art of Xing Shen Zhuang Gong over Zoom. It is a practice that was first only taught to close disciples and initiates in hidden Daoist lineages. It is now finally being disseminated and shared online by Shifu Constantino Valente and his student Jiaoshi Andrea, which is a truly wonderful opportunity. 

Despite not being there physically, Andrea has a keen eye for detail and his explanations were excellent. Though the movements looked simple at first – doing them with Andrea proved that there was much more to these movements than expected. Every little aspect of posture and each of the 15 movements and techniques was explained and detailed hidden instructions were given in terms of internal focus and internal state.


We kept practicing the exercises I found difficult until I knew the essential aspect of them and could practice them well enough on my own while still retaining the essence of that exercise. 

After the 3-hour session, I received an email with the full instructive PDF and also a video of Jiaoshi Andrea’s master going through the movements with Andrea’s instructions as a follow-along video. This is what I’ll be using until I know the full XSZG by heart. 

After finishing the full training and distant learning session, I felt that I had worked out my entire body. I was sore in all kinds of places and felt like I had worked out every part of my back. After resting for a bit and eating to nourish me, I felt invigorated, warm, calm, and a lot more energized than usual. 

I’m excited to see what’s to come.

Anders (Denmark)

I've been practicing the first basic practice of Xing Shen Zhuang Gong for over a week now, I really like it such that I've actually been doing it twice a day, in the morning and in the evening. This time practicing has been enough for me to start feeling a sense of overall wellness and inner peace that definitely goes beyond that afforded by me just meditating and doing my "light" Qi Gong practice (18 forms / Shibashi, 8 Brocades, and other similar ones).

I've been feeling more and more a subtle sense of inner joy, and thoughts seem to be "sticking" a lot less, which is the best part for me, it's been really interesting seeing this progress in myself. Even surprising that it is working in this way. 

The class experience itself with Jiaoshi Andrea was very easygoing, it pretty much felt as if we were practicing in the same room in terms of quality of instruction. With clear explanations, demonstration with different points of view, and correcting my form as I was doing the exercises which was very helpful.

Between the initial teaching of the class and the video routine, it's been all that I've needed to practice effectively. Some of the exercises were physically intensive at the start, but I'm really enjoying them now.

I think it is worth having a walk on this path just for this practice alone, really, based on what I'm experiencing so far, that being said, I can't help but be excited for what may come next. I am very thankful for this path being made available to me!

The learning for me with Andrea was outstanding and very efficient.

Andrea is very patient with the teachings and explains the techniques very thoroughly.  

I felt I was guided with sincere, dedicated, and empathic care for my personal goals.


He is communicating directly at an eye-to-eye level, without any barriers, that kind of interaction makes the practice and knowledge-gaining process very effective.

Andrea has an amazingly humble and caring nature, a truly rare human being that surpassed the illusion of ego.

Dr. David (Hungary)

Jiaoshi Andrea is 100% dedicated to teaching students,
available, honest, benevolent, attentive. He provides accurate and correct
instructions. I have learned the first level with him.


He allowed me to clearly grasp the basis of this Qi Gong. This is
perfectly what I was looking for, both physically and mentally.

Damien (France)

Jiaoshi Andrea is a patient, well-spoken and passionate teacher. I would highly recommend him and the Nei Qi Gong path for anyone interested in getting to the core of their nature.


Delicate care was taken going over every movement and the intricacies within the form. Along with the underlying principles and the goal of the practice, Jiaoshi clearly shows what, how, and why we are doing what we do. Along with this and the study resources provided, one has everything they need to make great progress with their energetic practice.


Jiaoshi Andrea also makes himself available for any questions or concerns the student may have. And to discuss the changes you are experiencing within yourself. 


The rest is up to you, to practice and experience.

Don't decide now, if the online class and the Nei Qi Gong are worthy and suitable for you.

Attend the class, practice the exercises for a month, and start feeling the benefits of this millennial practice. If after 30 days you are not totally satisfied with it, get in touch by email or WhatsApp and I will send you a full refund.  

No questions, no clauses "written in small": I am more than convinced of the extraordinary benefits that Nei Qi Gong can bring in your life, and I want you to try it in peace.

I am also aware of the dedication I have towards my students, teaching, and the great respect that I have for the Nei Qi Gong system, and the correct transmission of these ancient powerful practices.


Teaching is probably one of my best talents and one of the things that makes me feel more fulfilled and useful in the world.

I was happy to go through the first course of the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong.

Jiaoshi Andrea was friendly, earnest, conscientious, and very thorough. We went through each exercise in a detailed way and then through the whole sequence.


I enjoyed the lesson and benefitted greatly from his instructions as I also carried on with the video the following days. I highly recommend this course!! 

Patrick (Greece)

I was happy to go through the 1st level of the Xing Shen Zhuang Gong and I highly recommend Jiaoshi Andrea Castrogiovanni as a personal teacher. He gives very importance to details and has a lot of patience.


The 1st practice is a bit demanding but the results are immediate and apparent. You will feel your body refreshed and with energy from the very first sessions.

Thanasis (Greece)

Today I have started the practice of Xing Shen Zhuang Gong and I can say that it has been wonderful. I am very satisfied with the practice, and with this excellent knowledge. In addition, the teacher is a great person, with a perfect way of teaching and explaining.


All very well explained and detailed, with some excellent study materials that you will receive at the end of the class. Thank you Jiaoshi Andrea for sharing your knowledge.

I started my training in Xing Shen Zhuang Gong this morning, and found Jiaoshi Andrea to be an excellent instructor. I don't have flexibility, coordination, or balance as I am sitting down in front of a computer every day. Once our XSZG session began, I was very surprised to find that each exercise seemed to work areas of my body that I'd never even considered.   


As we performed each exercise, Jiaoshi explained and demonstrated the movement (in Spanish and English) - to make sure I understood its essence. After slowly going through the entire sequence, Jiaoshi has a keen eye for details and corrected me along the way, we took a short break. Then we performed the entire XSZG  routine again, as I tried to mirror Jiaoshi's movements. This took about 45 minutes.


I have to say, I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to learn authentic teachings - from an ancient lineage. My Zoom training session felt like having a one-to-one, with my personal instructor. I got real value for such a small investment. 


With continued practice, using the video of Shifu Valente demonstrating XSZG and the pdf provided - I'm confident that I will continue to improve.

The first online lesson with Jiaoshi Andreas was excellent. His attention to form and communication of details and finer points of information is of the highest standards. The actual movements and exercises of Xing Shen Zhuang Gong are very potent, you can feel and understand the benefits of the movements for the body and mind. Thank you Jiaoshi Andreas for a great experience.

Mehmet (UK)

I am really happy about your zoom lesson and the precise coaching. Practicing afterward with the video works perfectly. So far I can say it results for me in a clear mind and a light feeling body. I feel more present now. A blockage I had in my right shoulder disappeared during our online class. I realized that after the session. I think this method opens a big door toward improving myself in many aspects, physically and mentally.

Ralf (Germany)

I wanted to give a little time after my training session with Jiaoshi Andrea in order to let myself assimilate the practice fully, and now at just over a month of doing it very consistently (initially twice a day, but frequently three or four times a day now), I feel that I can really speak to its impressive benefits.

Very quickly, I noticed a great deal of improved strength and flexibility that I had forgotten could exist in my spine. My job is sedentary and I am at a desk for ten hours at a time, and I feel so much better from that unpleasant situation after even just one session of XSZG, it's actually very impressive. I've practiced yoga, meditation, and martial arts for more than three decades, and rarely have I experienced an exercise of any kind that seems to rejuvenate the body-mind so quickly.

I seem to bounce back from things much more easily than usual. Even better than that, it seems like many issues that would bother me a great deal after arising simply don't affect me anymore. Quite interesting.

I have noticed a much higher level of perception of my surrounding in general, as well as my overall attunement to nature. Quite significant (and actually very...fulfilling, I guess is the right word?), and it seems to drive me to be even more of an "outdoorsy" person than before.

I feel like my circulation (physical and otherwise) is greatly improved in my arms and hands, as well as the bones in the lower part of my spine, even into the tailbone.


I feel like my mobility is absolutely improved, much like it was when I was younger.

There are other benefits as well, but I think some things are best left to personal experience. This practice is truly surprising and an absolutely incredible deal.

As for the instruction, I couldn't speak more highly of Jiaoshi Andrea. I loved the training session and feel like he really knows how to make use of the remote learning medium. Not only was the instruction perfectly clear, but Jiaoshi Andrea is truly an excellent teacher. I loved learning the practice from him, and could not speak more highly of his character.


No gimmicks, no deception, just an honest, open, and straightforward person. I can't wait to learn more about the Neiqigong path from him in the future, and I sincerely thank him for his time and generosity!If you are on the fence about learning this practice, I strongly recommend just going for it. You (and your body-mind) will be glad you did!
