It builds strength and flexibility and promotes health, vitality, balance and well-being. It is also a form of moving meditation that helps you connect with the present moment. QiGong originates from China, about 4,000 years ago. It has a long history of helping people discover health and vitality from the inside out. Qi Gong is for anyone at any age or fitness level.
