Is a Chinese practice of aligning breath, movement, and awareness for exercise, healing, and martial arts training, extends back more than 4,000 years.

Archeological evidence suggests that the first forms of qigong can be linked to ancient shamanic meditative practice and gymnastic exercises.

Qigong has a type of traditional exercise for maintaining health and fitness. The Qigong exercises are known as the “Six Healing Sounds” are an excellent traditional Qigong practice, involving the formation of sounds and their vibrations in order to cleanse, re-energize, balance and harmonize the internal organs, thereby creating optimum health.

Meditation is also an important part of Qigong because it is a necessary process for training the mind to direct and regulate the energy flow in the body. Once the energy is activated it must be coordinated with the activities of the mind, so mind and body can benefit from the synchronization and mutual influence. The mind, when trained by meditation, is able to perceive the subtle levels at which the Qi functions, both at the level of the mind and at the level of the body.

Qigong has also been known as “Dao Yin,” which means “guiding and directing the Qi flow” by means of specific movements and breathing.
