“You can live sixty days without eating food and two weeks without drinking water, but you’ll live only a few minutes without breathing air.”
Qigong Master Hung Yi-hsiang
Qigong (or Chi Kung) means energy work and breathing skill. Qigong is an ancient Chinese art of integrating mindful movements, focused attention, body posture and breathing techniques.
Regularly practising the art of Qigong improves your health in general, makes you become more aware of your own energy, supports you in developing your spirituality and strengthens your physical, and internal power for your martial arts training.
