What is Qigong?
Qigong is the Chinese practice of using the Chi, the Life Force, to maintain (or return to) good physical and emotional health.
Chi is also spelled Qi, using English letters to approximate Chinese sounds. Qigong is pronounced "Chee-GUNG" and 'gong' means the discipline of practicing as often as one can to garner the benefits.
Qigong is 5000 years old and is similar to Tai Chi except that Qigong is solely focused on healing versus the self-defense component. Qigong is actually closer to the practice of yoga, which came from India.
