Qigong is an ancient internal martial art – a set of slow, mindful movements to balance the body’s vital life force. It can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves mental and physical well-being by integrating posture, movement, breathing techniques, self-massage, and sound and focused intent for significant health benefits.
