Yan Shou Gong – The Art of Longevity (Sets 1-6) Shaolin Nei Gong
Yan Shou Gong 延壽功 is an Authentic Nei Gong practice traditionally taught to only the most senior monks in the Southern Shaolin Temple. Each of the Yan Shou Gong sets condenses the best practices of the Nei Gong arts, making them:
- Easy to learn
- Quick to practice
- Produce real internal skills.
Many types of Nei/Qi Gong practices typically take years before a student feels any benefits from the training; Or even worse, the methods don’t produce any results. However, this is not the case with Yan Shou Gong, as the student will notice the benefits instantly, and in most instances, it can begin to deliver results within weeks.
Yan Shou Gong also emphasizes the development of kinetic energy and the mind; in Chinese martial arts, these terms are referred to as Jin 勁 and Yi 意. It also teaches the practitioner how to perform techniques such as Grounding, Rooting, and Centering, creating awareness and mindfulness of being in the body. This can improve a practitioner’s martial abilities, but it can also help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.

About Yap Boh Heong
Yap Boh Heong is a 3rd generation Kungfu master with close to 50-years of experience in Southern Shaolin Kungfu, Traditional Chinese Martial Arts (TCMA), and Nei Gong. He is the son of the late Grandmaster Yap Cheng Hai, an internationally renowned master of Kungfu and feng shui.
Master Yap has acquired extensive knowledge and understanding of Shaolin Kungfu and especially the internal martial arts of Five Ancestors, WuMei and Yan Shou Gong. He has spent the past ten years researching and developing a new teaching pedagogy (TCMA) that makes sophisticated concepts easy to understand and accelerates learning. While it would traditionally take ten years for a new student to achieve proficiency in TCMA, it can now be achieved in three years using these new methods. Since he began teaching with these new methods, he has produced several highly skilled and capable students, proficient in using their internal energies, such as Jin and Yi.
Although his initial focus was on the martial aspects of TCMA, he has also turned his focus towards the health and well-being aspect after seeing how it can help others improve their lives. He now actively teaches Yan Shou Gong (YSG), an authentic Nei Gong taught previously to only the most senior monks in Southern Shaolin Temple.
Since the passing of GM Yap Cheng Hai and GM Chee Kim Thong, Master Yap Boh Heong has taken over the mantle and is actively teaching and spreading the benefits of Yan Shou Gong to the world. He recently began teaching internationally in Europe, conducting courses and workshops in the Netherlands, Germany, UK, Sweden, Denmark, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia.
