Experience inner peace and calm through practising Qigong
Qigong is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that boosts our overall health and well-being. It has been used for thousands of years and based on the principle of the traditional Chinese medicine that Qi, or energy, must flow throughout the body to achieve and maintain health.
Qigong practice typically involves moving meditation, coordinating slow-flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and a calm meditative state of mind. People practice qigong throughout China and worldwide for recreation, exercise, relaxation, preventive medicine, self-healing, alternative medicine, meditation, self-cultivation, and training for martial arts.

Qigong vs. Tai Chi
Tai Chi is actually a form of Qigong. Both focus on relaxing the mind and energizing the body. The main difference between the two is that Tai Chi is a martial art that is typically highly choreographed and more complex than the practice of Qigong. Tai Chi can also be a form of combat or self-defense. Qigong is a simpler practice and easier to learn than Tai Chi.
