An Introduction to the timeless art of chi kung


Chi Kung (qi gong) is an exercise system from China that combines slow, gentle movement - or sometimes even stillness - with calm regular breathing. Although there are many different styles of chi kung, the movements themselves are often quite easy to learn. The challenge comes from co-ordinating these with the correct way of breathing. When this is achieved, the body's natural vitality - the Qi (or chi) - is circulated far more efficiently than would normally be the case. With daily practice, therefore, chi kung can strengthen the overall state of health and increase resistance to illness.The author of this page, Robert Parry, is a practitioner of oriental medicine and a long-time student of Eastern exercise systems such as yoga, tai ji and qi gong.
