Qigong Classes

what is qigong?

Qigong is a form of energy medicine that originated in China over 5,000 years ago. Qigong is based on the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which views the body as a complex system of energy channels and meridians. The practice involves gentle movements, breathing exercises, and meditation to balance and enhance the body’s energy, or Qi. 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.

“Practicing Tai Chi may help to improve balance and stability in older people and in those with Parkinson’s disease, reduce back pain and pain from knee osteoarthritis, and improve quality of life in people with heart disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. Tai Chi and Qi gong may ease fibromyalgia pain and promote general quality of life. Qi gong may reduce chronic neck pain, but study results are mixed. Tai Chi also may improve reasoning ability in older people.”
