What is Qigong and why practice it?

What is Qigong? (pronounced CHEE Gong; also known as Chi Gong / Gung or Nei Gong or even Chinese Yoga)

Qigong is an internal Chinese meditative practice which often uses slow graceful movements and controlled breathing techniques to promote the circulation of energy within the human body, and enhance a practitioner’s overall health. Qigong’s gentle movements, meditation, and breathing techniques cleanse and strengthen the immune system and Life Energy (Qi). The ideas and movements originated thousands of years ago in China. There are also many forms of Qigong that are done with little or no movement at all, in standing, sitting and supine positions; likewise, not all forms of Qigong use breath control techniques. There are more than 10,000 styles of qigong and 200 million people practicing these methods.

Why practice Qigong?

There are three main reasons why people practice Qigong:
1) To gain strength, improve health, or reverse a disease
2) To gain skill working with qi, so as to become a healer
3) To become more connected with the “Tao, God, True Source, Great Spirit”, for a more meaningful connection with nature and the universe.
