Qi Gong (energy work) embodies self-care techniques developed in China thousands of years ago. In the old days, these arts were handed down from master to disciple and methods were closely-held family secrets. Today, Qi Gong exercises are very popular in China. Large groups practice in the early morning in public parks. In the West, qi gong and taiji classes are frequently recommended to assist in regaining and maintaining health: jing-qi-shen, the three treasures of essence-energy-spirit. Qi Gong strengthens the body, moves the energy (qi, chi, ki) and calms the mind. Enjoy!
