Qigong - Mindful movement

Qigong stands for health gymnastics, Chinese yoga that focuses on consciousness, movement, meditation, and breathing, which has been practiced for over a thousand years and belongs to traditional Chinese medicine. Qigong is a part of TCM = Traditional Chinese/Chinese Medicine, which is about balancing and harmonizing body and mind so that all organs and cells function optimally. Used as prevention and treatment Qigong helps to release energy blockages and leads to a natural, healthy balance so that the life energy can flow from the head to the feet. Regular exercise promotes physical performance and sensitizes body awareness. Concentration, discipline, imagination and thought power are strengthened. Qigong is for everyone: A complete body training, that strengthens and relaxes. The movements are so calm and sensitive that everyone can participate. ”Less is More” . Qigong provides energy and inner peace.
