What is Qigong ?
Qigong is a 2500 year old Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures and breathing techniques, developed by monks in deep meditation. It cultivates the internal energy ,’Qi’ which revitalizes our organs and provides strength to our Jing (body), Yi (mind), and Shen (spirit). This practice builds, accumulates and circulates the flow of ‘Qi’ energy latent in our bodies resulting in improved health, and social life conditions.
The techniques used are in line with the ancient theories intrinsic to traditional Chinese medicine of the five elements (metal, wood, water, fire, and earth) and the five internal organs (heart, liver, spleen, lungs, and kidney). Regular practice of these techniques can help prevent and cure chronic diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, white water discharge, digestion related issues, sinus, skin disorders, hormonal imbalances, diabetes, liver disorders, and mental health issues like stress, anxiety, depression etc.

The Roots of Qigong
‘Yoga’ which means the union of the mind and body, comes from Ayurveda. Ayurveda, a 5000 year old science of life, has laid emphasis on the fact that most of all our health issues are psychosomatic, and hence, the practice of Yoga can help treat and cure multiple health issues including anxiety, insomnia and depression. It is from Yoga that practice of Qigong has also emerged, and is being practiced across the world.
