Everything in the universe is made of matter, and, so everything in the universe or what we see around us is made of tiny atoms. Reactions that occur within atoms produce energy or Qi (also pronounced and spelled Chi) that promotes change. Chi stands for a ‘vital energy.’ According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, a balanced Chi is vital to one’s good physical and mental health. The foundation of any practice, spiritual, martial, or medical is built on energy, breath and awareness. Yoga and QiGong (or Qigong, also pronounced and spelled ChiGong, ChiKung, ChiGung) are ancient energy practices and physical disciplines that utilize meditation, deliberate movement, slow breathing, mental concentration, and visualizations.
Yoga is a holistic approach towards health and wellbeing that forms a part of Ayurveda — one of the world’s oldest whole-body healing systems. It is an ancient practice that traces roots centuries back to Vedic traditions and Hindu texts, the common heritage of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. Yoga has an amazing power to calm the mind and give the ability to cope with tension with a peaceful mind, grace and ease.
Qigong aka Chinese yoga is an ancient Chinese internal martial arts system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques, focused intention, and meditation. This centuries-old healing system is an outstanding legacy of Chinese culture as well as an important part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. There are different types of Qigong: Medical, Martial, Spiritual, and Scholarly (Intellectual) Qigong. It is the foundation and basis of the martial arts — such as Tai Chi (Taiji) and Kung Fu (often referred to as Gongfu or Wushu). Qigong and Tai Chi are the only internal energy systems that have worked for large masses of a population and transformed their health.
