is the ancient chinese art of developing internal energy
and unlike yoga, places less emphasis on stretching movements
and postures, and more on how to feel and move energy within
of the basic routines involve standing still for periods
ranging from a few minutes to hours at a time, to create
awareness of the movement of energy in the body.
exercises involve flowing movements that are gentle and
almost rhythmic in nature in an attempt to generate and
conserve energy, rather than burning calories.
qigong is not a highly aerobic exercise, it's benefits include
toning the body, creating greater flexibility and a tremendous
sense of relaxation.
the controlled breathing during a qigong session helps to
provide inner focus, relieve blocked qi, and increase energy
