Qigong is energy cultivation, and in community Qigong we cultivate energy together as well as strengthen the energy we create together within the circle of community. The practice involves mindful breathing, postural alignment, and body mechanics in preventive, healing, and strengthening exercises. In Qigong, less is more, such that with less physical effort and more presence, we achieve amazing results. Practicing Qigong in circle allows us to first align and center individually so we can better connect and harmonize in community. Tai Chi is Qigong in motion. Qigong helps boost our energy, avoid burnout, and reduce inflammation, pain, and general malaise, positively affecting the lymphatic, endocrine, genitourinary, digestive, respiratory, cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, nervous, and craniosacral systems. Qigong promotes relaxation, brings our hormonal systems into balance, and strengthens our immune system. Qigong also enhances mental clarity and positive thinking.
