Qi Gong… Chee what?.. Chee Gung… Qi Gong

For those of you who don’t know much about Traditional Chinese Exercise (Qi Gong), let us explain. You’ve probably heard of Tai Chi, Yoga and Pilates.

Qi Gong involves:
– soft, flowing movements that mobilize your joints (like Tai Chi)
– stretching, holding postures and deep breathing (like Yoga)
– building core strength, balance and body awareness (like Pilates).

Qi Gong, pronounced Chee-kung is basically martial arts training with less focus on self-defense and more focus on health maintenance. For thousands of years this style of exercise has been practiced and refined purely for health benefits. It is actually the oldest form of therapeutically specific exercise in history. It has been steadily growing in popularity in the West over the last 50 years, and now, after many request from our patients we have finally got an introductory course ready for you.

 

We’re excited to be kicking off the new year with some arm swiming, mind centering, core strengthening fun.
