Qigong (pronounced “chee-qóng”) is simply defined as moving, breathing and stretching for health and vitality. It’s origins date back to over 5,000 years ago in China and evolved into thousands of forms that are now being made available to the public over the last 50 years. Each form is developed to address certain health conditions or goals. The word qigong means “the cultivation of qi,” which is defined as the energy that sustains life. If we can learn to harness the power of qi, we can tap into our own self-healing potential.
