What is Qigong?
Qigong (pronounced 'chee-gong'), an ancient Chinese discipline, is commonly translated to mean 'work with energy'.
For centuries Qigong has been used as a stress management tool and healing modality in many countries across the world.
Qigong incorporates knowledge of Chinese medicine (TCM), Fengshui, Acupressure, Acupuncture, Chinese Martial Arts and Tai Chi.
Qigong is the most powerful and true working tool in the physical, spiritual development of human being and can be used in every day life.
This simple meditation based energy practice combines gentle movement, breath, and mindful awareness to activate, store and focus energy or Qi. This energy can be utilized immediately for self-healing and healing others.

The first aim of Level 1 practice is to relax the physical body. This means releasing the main patterns of muscular tension that restrict or block energy flow. When energy flows more freely, relaxation and stress relief take place.
As this process continues, you achieve the second aim: you cultivate your energy body by increasing the overall amount and intensity of energy as well as improving its ability to circulate and gather it in the lower energy center — the lower dantian.
In turn, greater Qigong Qi(chi) will push through greater blockages and regenerate areas of stagnation.
When you have reached the relaxed state, you will find your body feeling more spacious, easy and your energy flowing relatively freely. Your mind may remain active, but it has lost its ability to disturb the body, and increase your energy level.
