Why Qigong :
Qigong requires no equipment and is easy to practice anywhere. It strengthens immunity, builds internal stamina, eases chronic illness and relieves common ailments by stimulating the flow of energy Qi.
Qigong is an ancient Chinese Medicine health practice that coordinates breathing patterns with movements to maintain and improve health and well-being. Qigong can be safely undertaken by all age groups and levels of ability, and is known to have remarkable effects on general health and stamina. When practiced regularly, can reduce the signs of ageing, make you very strong and fit and will unblock stagnant Qi and allow it to flow more freely so that your health improves.
Qigong is an aspect of Chinese medicine as yoga is part of Ayurveda.
Historically, yoga and Qigong have different movements and postures and focus, but they both similarly use the breath to move energy and invoke a meditative state. Yoga and Qigong can also be used together to bring a more heightened awareness.
