Qigong is a Chinese term meaning ‘energy cultivation’; Qi means energy (or breath) and gong means cultivation (or achievement through practice). The word Qi is also used to describe the relationship between matter, energy and spirit. One of the main aims is to enhance the flow of qi/energy through the body which can release endorphins (the feel good hormone), enhance wellbeing and a state of calm, grounded centeredness. Qigong practices can be dynamic (involving movement and steps), static (standing or sitting) and meditative. All exercises are quite gentle and always in connection with the breath.
Qigong can be practiced by anyone regardless of age or abilities. So if you are stressed and need to recharge your batteries then Qigong is the ideal practice for you.
