Qi Gong is a way to improve and maintain our physical, mental and spiritual health. It is a form of exercise and vital part of  Traditional Chinese Medicine. Its roots go back thousands of years; and different practices have developed according to the needs of times.

Until early 1900 Qi Gong exercises have been kept secret in China. Now various styles are taught openly worldwide, and research has confirmed its many benefits. Regular Qi Gong practise can support our wellbeing and health, and can help to overcome anxiety and stress of daily living. Qi Gong is an excellent method to self-regulate. When practising Qi Gong our body is relaxed, the breathing calm, movements are slow and our mind focusing on the flow, expansion and cultivation of Qi.
