QiGong is an ancient Chinese art that combines guided meditation with breathing techniques, gentle movement and visualization to promote healing, balance, and circulate your body’s vital energy. In Traditional Chinese Medicine and Martial Arts, “QiGong” is a practice of breathing, physical movement, and mind to cultivate and balance Qi (Chi) which is the “intrinsic life energy”. Traditional QiGong dates back to 4000 years and incorporates rhythmic breathing with slow repetition of fluid movement, a calm mindful state, and visualization of guiding qi through the body along meridians paths.
