What is QiGong?

Qi Gong is a holistic practice of self-healing exercises, rooted in Chinese medicine. The word “qi” means “life force”. The word “gong” means skill or work. Put together, Qi Gong is a skillful practice to open the body’s energy system.


Qi Gong’s gentle, rhythmic exercises mirror the movements of nature, especially the fluidity of water. The Qi Gong practice includes: simple breathing techniques, warm up exercises, gentle stretches, strengthening postures, flowing movements and meditation.


Qi Gong is uniquely suited to relieve stress, boost your immune, respiratory and cardiovascular systems, and increase your body’s innate healing abilities. Qi Gong empowers you to enhance your wellness and find more energy and joy in your life.



Modifications are offered for all ages and abilities.
