Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is a system of slow movements, breathing techniques and meditations that promote relaxation and self-healing. This is an ancient Chinese practice that is used to accumulate, cleanse and refine our life force (Qi), improving the health and harmony of mind and body. Qigong exercises are not strenuous and can be done while sitting.

Research shows Qigong reduces blood pressure, increases maximum oxygen consumption, increases immune function, improves flexibility, posture and balance. The meditative and breathing practice aspects of Qigong programs have been shown to reduce anxiety, depression and stress responses.
