Chi Kung (also spelled Qigong) is the “little sister” to Tai Chi.
It actually preceeded Tai Chi, as it evolved from the original exercises that were brought to China from India.
Chi Kung involves slow stretching movements, usually static (not stepping as in Tai Chi). They can be performed standing or sitting, thus extending their range of usability.
There are dozens of Chi Kung “forms”, or sets of movements. I teach two forms for beginners – the 18 Movement Form and the 8 Pieces of Brocade.
There are two main goals of doing Chi Kung – to increase your flexibility and range-of-motion, and to enhance you ability to feel and guide your energy (“Chi”).
