Qi gong is the ancient Chinese science of moving the subtle energy or
life force, called qi (pronounced "chi"). Gong means "work." So qi gong
literally means "energy work." Qi gong is a gentle set of exercises that people practice daily
in order to improve their fitness, stamina, and health. Despite being gentle qi gong can be very
invigorating and even tiring. You will be surprised. But in general people work at their own intensity and their
stamina improves over time. Because of the gentleness of the qi gong exercises there is very little
inflamation created in the body. This is unlike other faster moving exercises, thus qi gong has the quality of
enhancing fitness for life.
