What is Qi Qong?
It is pronounced Chi Kung and is the root of Tai Chi. Literally translated it means 'skilful breath' and refers to our innate life force. Traditionally, this Eastern practice is handed on by word of mouth, and never written down.
The monks practiced Qi Qong as a medition, a martial art, and to ward off disease. In other words, it is a way of developing poise and coordination both mentally and physically, as well as keeping ourselves strong and healthy. Regular practice engenders an overall improvement in well-being which supports and enhances our everyday lives; thus helping to develop greater personal confidence.
