Qigong is the art of energy cultivation that originated in ancient China over 5,000 years ago. Typically, Qigong practice sets include a combination of still and moving postures that are simple, slow, gentle and rhythmic. Qigong movements resemble Tai Chi, which is a martial art based on Qigong, and are designed to develop life force energy. However, Qigong is much simpler and easier to learn.
