QiGong (Chi Gong)
Qigong (Chi Gong) is an internal art form or yoga. Qigong is the act of qi and qi exchange. It uses the breath and relaxation to begin to activate this exchange of qi. The exchange of qi helps to grow the awareness of qi and opening one self up to the continual flow of qi through ones body. This cultivation is accomplished through lying down, sitting, standing, and moving practices. Some of these practices are physical and some are more visual, using the mind to guide the energy.
As one progresses in practice, the awareness of how energy is in all things in life and its continuous movement and change grows. The life flow, qi, grows strong in the body helping to strengthen and bring health. As the qi grows, the mind grows more positive giving a healthy attitude toward life.
