"Dayan" translates literally as "big bird" or "wild goose". It is believed that the founder of the Wild Goose Qigong (Dayan Yangsheng Gong) was a Daoist monk named Dao An. He was a Master of Buddhist, Daoist and Confucian philosophy at a very high level.

However the system remained secret, handed down with the family,  until 1978 when it was first made public by Grandmaster Yang Meijun, who by then was already over 80 years old. Having been taught by her Grandfather from the age of 13, she was the 27th Generation Inheritor of the skill.
 
Grandmaster Yang Meijun lived to be 106!   (1895 - 2002)
Wild Goose Qigong, also known as Dayan Qigong, or Dayan Yangsheng Gong, is a health qigong exercise system that was developed during the Jin Dynasty, approximately 1800 years ago, as a way of helping to improve people's quality of life. Dao An (312 -385), who is consider the Ancestor/ Creator, was brought up with an in depth knowledge of Daoism. Later in his life he was responsible for translation of Buddhist scriptures.  In Xiangyang he founded  the Tan Xi Temple, and is credited with starting the tradition of all ordained Monks taking the name "Shi". When he died aged 74, his body was free of disease. So Wild Goose Qigong pre-dates Tai Chi Chuan by over 1000 years!
The movements of Wild Goose Qigong (Dayan Yangsheng Gong) have evolved from ancient martial arts movements into a self help, wellbeing system that can be used to open the acupuncture points and regulate the flow of Qi  throughout the whole body. When the mind and body come into a state of harmony, stress is reduced and a sense of wellbeing is gained.
Let Wild Goose Qigong (Dayan Yangsheng Gong) help you to achieve a sense of balance and harmony. In practising these exercises the practitioner bends his body forward and back, stretches his arms out and in, and lifts his feet up and down. Wild Goose Qigong benefits the whole body. Qigong, also spelt as "Chi Kung" can mean breath work, energy exercise, breathing techniques, or the harmony between movement and breathing.

Learn from the original teachings!
Today Grandmaster Chen Chuangang  continues his mother's work in promoting the Wild Goose Qigong system.
Grandmaster Chen Chuangang is working to ensure that there are no deviations to the exercise system which has been handed down through 27 generations to him. He succeeded his Mother as head of the Wild Goose system in 1998, when she retired from teaching. Towards the end of Yang Meijun's life her teaching was not so accurate and many variations have evolved as a result. Grandmaster Chen is trying to standardise the system so that, no matter where in the World we are, we are all continuing with the same accuracy of movements. 

Even at the age of 90 Grandmaster Chen Chuangang continues to work tirelessly to ensure that the Wild Goose Qigong (Dayan Yangsheng Gong) we teach and practise today remains true to the original, accurate and honest.
