What is QiGong?

Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention.

The word Qigong (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced “chee” and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital Life Energy that flows through all things in the universe.  The second word, Gong, pronounced gung, is often translated to mean work or accomplishment, or skill or  that is cultivated through steady practice.

Together,  () gōng (). means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing, meditation, recovery, increased vitality and joy.

Qigong is one of the few forms of exercise that will leave you with more energy when you have finished practicing.

Qigong is a 5000 year old energy art for strengthening the flow of life force & improving health. Its recent surge in popularity has been a result of Qigong’s fun and dynamic movements of practice. Magnetic energy fields are formed and created in a slow graceful manner. The Qi (life force) literally throbs and pulsates in your hands. Some say it’s the most tangible experience of the spiritual life force energy. It yields a strong “Qi Feeling” in minutes.
