Qigong (CHEE Kung) is a combination martial arts, medical and spiritual practice. Qi (Chi) represents that vital energetic force that flows within us all and the universe. The practice involves slow movements, posture, balance, breathing techniques, and mental focus. Practices that help heal the body and calm the mind can range from a very gentle Tai Chi to a more active and vigorous Kung Fu that puts minimal stress on joints and muscles. Qi Gong utilizes the meridian system found in acupuncture as well as breathing methods and mindfulness of the process. By incorporating these practices, you can reconnect with your spiritual nature while the benefits of exercise are greatly enhanced.
