Qi Gong is a combination of movement, breath techniques, postures, and Mindfulness Meditation.
Also known as movement meditation or as Harvard has called it “Movement Medication”. Qi means “Lifeforce, vital energy, breath”. Gong means “cultivation or work”.
So, Qi Gong can be translated as “mastering your vital energy” to open the most profound medicine found within your own body.
Most if not all of the benefits of Qi Gong and movement meditations are centered around cultivating our own mind/body and spirit allowing the body to self-regulate and help strengthen our own immune response and turn on the “healer within”.
