WHAT IS QI GONG?
A mindful movement called qi gong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient and contemporary Chinese exercise that combines movement, breathing, awareness, and body posture. Qi Gong is connecting to, working with, and cultivating qi (energy or life force). We do this by stretching and moving the body to open the energy pathways known as meridians or channels.
WHAT IS QI
Qi is energy or life force and is in everything and everyone. Nothing is without qi unless it is dead. In positivist research, qi is framed and measured as electromagnetic energy. In Chinese epistemology, The character for qi includes many elements — the steam rising from a pot of boiling liquid, the cooking rice, and the pot. This Chinese character indicates something more layered and complex than energy to be measured.
