Qi Gong (Chee-Gung) is a practice of aligning breath, movement and awareness for exercise, healing, and meditation.
It comes originally from China and is part of the martial arts. Nowadays Westerners practice Qi Gong to balance their bodies
and minds and the energies that flow. Typically a qigong practice involves rhythmic breathing, coordinated with slow stylized
repetition of fluid movement, and a calm mindful state.
Qigong is not just a set
of breathing exercises, but it is composed of physical and mental training methods based on several principles:
movement: careful, flowing balanced style
breathing: slow, deep, coordinated with fluid
- Awareness: calm, focused,
- Visualization: of qi flow, philosophical tenets, aesthetics
- Softness: soft gaze, expressionless face
- Solid Stance: firm footing, erect spine
- Relaxation: relaxed muscles, slightly bent joints
- Balance and Counterbalance: motion over the center of gravity
