Doing just one move of qigong ?

I see videos on youtube about qigong they are always repeated a few times and its always a few different moves of qigong ... you can answer just one question or more but even one answer is also good and helpful

1 . do i have to do a few exercises each time or i can do just one movement each time ?

2 . how much times to repeat an exercises ? 8 times ? is 1 time also good ? is more than 8 good ? the more the better ?

3 . do i need to "close" after each movement (lifting arms up than down) ?

4 . what are the benefits in the exercises and do they stay if i only do 1 movement ?

There are hundreds of different types of Qigong, if you tell me which Form you are interested in learning I can help you...
It depends on a persons stamina/strength on how many times you do each movement but usually you do each movement more than once and do the whole Form from beginning to end.

You can answer me based on what you practice - tell me what you practice and tell me by that you dont have to make a statment for all types of qigong just what is true for yours

I just watch qi gong youtube videos and do them (no money for a teacher) - i did 8 brocades for example - 5 elements and more videos i dont remember their names now

just want to know from peopel what are their views on this - and if someone can tell me why you need to do more than one or one is beneficial or why do they do the "ending" move after each type of move etc that would be very helpful to me

Goto www.taichi18.com
look at what you find there and it may answer some of your questions.
This form, the 18 form 'Sibashi' Tai Chi is very popular in Malaysia.

Ok i'll try and help you
First I would suggest you stick to one Form until you can do it yourself from memory, to many different one's will confuse a beginner.
The eight brocade is a very easy and beautiful Form to start with, if you practise this for about six months it will set you on a path to start learning another.
Learn one movement at a time, do it as many times a day as you want until you can do it without looking at your video, move on to the next when you feel comfortable.
Qigong is about quality, not quantity and ten mins each day done properly is better than hours done incorrectly.
As I said while you are first learning do each move as many times as you want but when you learn the moves by memory then it's best to do each move 3 times, you start on an in breath and finish the whole form on an out breath, you flow from one move to the next, breathing in... out.... Qigong means ' controlling the breath '
Hope this helps... PM me if you get stuck, I teach Qigong.

You can strip the music off the video.

Open the YT video
Open a 2nd browser window, goto http://youtubeconverter.me/
Copy the YT video address to the convertor
Click 'Create mp3'
Wait for the conversion to finish
Right-click the 'Download' button below the pictures row
Select 'Save Link As'
Choose the location to save

Even if someone does it for you there is still the question of how to get it to you
