The art of Qigong consists primarily of mediation, relaxation, physical movement,  mind-body integration and breathing exercises. It is also known as Daoist Yoga. We focus on the medical version that uses self-healing exercises to improve the quality of life by keeping the body relaxed and supple and ensuring the internal energy flows strong and healthy. It enhances harmony in body and mind. Anyone can learn to practise Qigong- in standing or sitting.
