“Qigong cultivates our bodies through physical movement and develop in us acute mental awareness. We can also engage in regular meditation to nurture our insight. With a consistent meditation practice that can be as simple as breathing exercises, we can cultivate mindfulness and clarity to deal with our emotions in a healthy way. Through meditation we develop the equanimity to accept the unsatisfactory circumstances of our lives with compassion and loving kindness.”

Dr. Xiaolan Zhao

 

 

What is Qigong (Qi Gong, Chi Kung)?

Qigong can be translated as energy cultivation or nurturing life force energy. It is a method where we use the energy by coordinating breathing techniques and body movement. It is meditative and it both cleanses and strengthens, allowing energy to circulate.

Qigong improves overall health and contributes to longevity, creating a peaceful state of mind. Qi Gong dates back to 2.500 years and there are references to similar techniques that go back to 5.000 years. Qigong has its origins in:

  • Chinese Shamanism, linked to the connection between Mankind and Nature, as a means to find harmony between the human body and nature’s elements;
  • Taoism, through the consistent practice of Qigong it was believed that spirit and body were in balance and harmony between Yin Yang was found;
  • Buddhism, certain types of Qigong were developed by Buddhists to compliment their seated meditations with movements which promoted serenity and awareness;
  • Chinese Medicine, Qigong promotes overall health and therefore its practice has been advised by many Traditional Chinese Doctors as a preventative and restorative method for the general balance of the organism and to strengthen specific organs;
  • Martial Arts, since the practice of Qigong greatly improves performance for athletes, Martial Artists designed and developed some forms of Qigong.

There are several types of Qigong and they are all based in the principles of having a straight rooted posture, keeping the spine aligned, being relaxed, focusing on diaphragmatic breathing, flowing with the movements and setting an intention with awareness throughout the practice to harmonize the Qi flow in the body and the connection with nature’s energy to balance the organism. The main energy centers – known as Dan Tiens or Tan Tiens (also referred to by Chakras or Glands in other cultures) – are healed and balanced through the consistent practice of Qigong. 

 

What is Qi?

Qi is life force energy! It can be called breath, energy, vital force or vital essence. It is pronounced “chee” and it is a Chinese term to describe the flow that “animates” (gives life to) the human body.

When you are aware that everything is energy and that you yourself are your Qi in motion, you become more sensitive to the energetic shifts within your body and you can actively participate in the state of your Qi.
