Yan Shou Gong – The Art of Longevity (Sets 1-6)

The Official Online Course of Master Yap Boh Heong

Ready to begin learning?

Learn the authentic Nei Gong practices of Southern Shaolin Kungfu.


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.

The comprehensive instruction provided for Yan Shou Gong sets 1-6 in this course is ideal for martial artists who want to study an authentic Nei Gong system/internal art. It is also suitable for those who have previously been too busy, living a stressed-out lifestyle and now need to work on improving their health.

Inner-door Students Group

As well as the comprehensive video instruction provided within the course, Master Yap has created a private group to personally guide students studying the Yan Shou Gong (Shaolin Nei Gong) course with him. Access to the group is exclusive and only available to students who enroll in this course. Students can use the group to ask questions, discuss the video lessons and share their training experiences with the other pupils. Master Yap will be on hand to answer any questions and share new video lessons with the group.

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 3 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.

I love it!

The way Master Yap breaks things down makes it easy and fun to learn. He’s an excellent teacher! I have to admit, I wasn’t ready for Yan Shou Gong to bring such amazing results so quickly. It’s almost mind blowing. So happy I gave this course a try, and I can’t wait for more.

Very well explained and easy to understand

I am still at the beginning of this journey but already the importance of correct alignment is very clear. Explanations are detailed and the objectives of the different movements clearly stated. I have just finished instruction on set 1 and will spend a few weeks perfecting the execution before continuing on to set 2.

Self Discovery

It will be safe to say that if you are diligent with your practice, you will discover things that were not there before. Your journey toward internal martial arts starts with the awareness of the body.
This course is superbly detailed in its presentation for you to discover the essence of true energy- that YOU produce.

Good for martial artists and qigong practitioners alike

I'm very surprised at how easy yet not easy this practices are, at how fast they generate the sensation of energy, how by looking at the sets we can think it's just another qigong practice but by practicing them they feel much more powerful. Everything is explained clearly. It's a gift that we have this opportunity to start our journey of Yan Shou Gong.

A high bar for online courses

Excellent quality, detail and very illuminating even about the inner workings of other arts. Yap Boh Heong's explanations are very clear and logical, explaining not just how to do things and what pitfalls to avoid, but also why you do it, and building upon each lesson in a systematic way that gives me understanding of the entire process and the changes to look for in my body as it transforms.

The videos are very good!

From the very beginning of you introducing Master Yap and his arts, I thought about how it might be possible to learn from him but didn't find any realistic opportunity. Your work, the presentation of this online-course, made it possible now and this is really a great gift and a pleasure. The videos are very good and Master Yap is really interested and supportive to make the best out of it. Thanks

This course is very interesting for beginners as well as for practioners of Yan Shou Gong.

The movements are very easy to follow and Master Yap's explanations are very detailed but easy to understand. I have been practising Yan Shou Gong since April 2020 and have already found details here in Set 1 that I was not aware of. In my opinion, the explanations in this course already go beyond a pure beginner's level, even though it is of course only the beginning of this journey.

Lots of detail but clear explanation

As someone returning to YSG after many years I'm finding this course not only a fantastic refresher but it also introduces a lot of detail I don't remember learning from before. That coupled with Master Yap's clear explanations make this course a great find.

A real treasure for the internal martial arts community

Having personally watched and edited every single video lesson, I can confirm that the information Master Yap is sharing in this course is a real treasure and will undoubtedly improve the internal skill and knowledge of every person that enrolls. Not only are the Nei Gong sets taught in explicit detail, but Master Yap has also provided detailed instruction on how to apply all of the movements.
