Qigong (chi kung) is an energy and intention-based practice that works with the principles of xing ming shuang xiu, meaning 'the body and spirt are equally cultivated and refined'. Qi means 'life force' and gong means 'to cultivate or build'. Thus qigong is the cultivation of life energy. While sometimes our qi can be healthy, balanced and flowing, when we are stressed, tense, or unwell, it can become stuck, stagnant, deficient or excessive. Regular practice of the sequences in this element-based qigong series can help maintain or rebalance the flow of energy in your body, supporting its innate ability to abide in a more balanced, healthy, natural state.
