Qigong

What is Qigong?

Qigong (also referred to as chi kung) is an ancient meditative healing art form, often referred to as a form of moving meditation that promotes health and wellness.  Qigong works through the use of Qi, which is defined as vital life force energy. The goal of this practise is to circulate and boost vital Qi energy and to harmonize the body, breath and mind as one.   Movements are simple and easy to follow along with and can be practiced by those of all age and fitness levels.  

Qigong - Shaolin Ba Duan Jin 

Shaolin Ba Duan Jin is translated to 8-Section Brocade.  It is one of the most well recognized forms of Qigong in the world and it is officially recognized by the Chinese Health Qigong Association.  This practice involves a series of gentle exercises and postures which are comprised of slow, circular movements; all while employing regulated breathing and focused meditation.
