Qi Gong

Qi Gong which is the cultivation of internal energy goes back thousands of years in Chinese history. It predates Tai Chi Chuan, Pa kua Chang and Hsing-Yi Chuan; however, its concepts in one form or another are used in all three of these arts. There are many different styles of Qi Gong. Practiced on a regular basis Qi Gong will have a profound effect on the physical, mental and spiritual development of anyone regardless of their age. The movements are more static than martial arts. Often one posture will be held for an extended period of time to build up the internal energy. It is easy to learn but the underlying philosophy and cultivation of the Qi (internal energy) is continually developed over a life time. Those that practice Qi Gong have less stress, lower blood pressure, and a greater sense of well being.
