Qigong, Moving Medicine, is a relaxing and meditative way to improve your health and well-being. Qigong, pronounced chee gung, was designed to be a system of medicine in China, and is comprised of slow moving, graceful forms. The movements of Qigong mimic nature, i.e. animal forms, such as tiger, bear, snake and crane, waving rolling oceans, willow trees and vast skies. The beauty of Qigong is that it can be practiced at many levels and at any age. Qigong forms are appropriate in a seated position, walking, standing, and lying down. Qigong is a beautiful way to un-stick the stuck places within the body, and creates a sense of quiet-mindedness and calm.
