Designed to Invigorate and Strengthen

These gentle routines emphasize strengthening the body internally while harmonizing it externally with nature. Utilizing static postures, moving forms and self massage, the aim of Qi Gong is to accumulate, circulate and harmonize Qi.

Yet in China, when you require air in your flat tire, you ask the assistant for more Qi. Some define it as breath. Its context specific, which is what makes it difficult to simply pin down.

Gong can defined as practice or skill. Gong is the same word as Kung. Just a strange translation semantics phenomenon that occurred over the years. Meaning different English speakers translated the same Chinese characters differently over the years. So ya, you guessed it, Kung Fu is related term. Which can be defined as a skill acquired over time.

In this practice, one can attain the means to protect the essence and cultivate the spirit, strengthen both root and pre-birth QI, master the body and cultivate character.
