Qigong (pronounced Chee Gung) is sometimes described as being “The Soul of Tai Chi.” Its origins dating back over 4500 years, Qigong is considered one of the deepest roots of traditional Chinese Medicine and Martial Arts.

Humans are a combination of physical, mental and emotional connections which interact and affect each other during every moment of every day. When one connection is out of balance, the other two are often disrupted as well. For example, try sleeping when your mind is racing, concentrating on a task when you are in significant pain or keeping your body relaxed when you are angry. Learning to understand these internal relationships and how to bring them back into a state of balance is truly the heart of our Training Mindfully with Qigong Principles™ program.

Students of Qigong begin by training an easy to learn collection of movements (forms) which can be performed seated or standing. Each form is repeated slowly, with a natural breathing cycle, allowing time to create meaningful internal connections before moving on to the next form.
