What is Qigong or Chi Gong?
"Qigong (pronounced "chee gong") is similar to Tai Chi (Taiji) in that it is also an ancient Chinese art that uses gentle, natural exercises to increase and balance the flow of energy through the body. The movements in Qigong develop balance, coordination, flexibility, muscle strength, and endurance. Deep breathing is coordinated with the movements to promote relaxation and develop the mind-body connection. Qigong means "the practice of developing and balancing your Qi (life energy) to promote health." In Chinese philosophy, Qi is the bioelectrical energy that maintains our physical and mental well-being. When this energy is balanced through the practice of Qigong, all things flow smoothly and in a definite order. This leads to the individual experiencing physical, mental, and spiritual health."
- Bob Martin, MS - from his book Conscious Choice
