Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that developed within the Shaolin culture. Practices vary from the soft internal styles such as Tai Chi; to the external, vigorous styles such as Kung Fu. Qigong integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention using slow, gentle movements. Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy, it is a system practiced for health maintenance, healing and increasing vitality. The slow gentle movements of the Qigong forms can be easily adapted for any fitness, age, mobility or experience level.
