Qigong or Chi Kung* is “moving meditation”, the art of learning to control the flow of Qi or energy through the body using breath, movement and meditation, the skill of cultivating the body’s vital energy. Qi or Chi means breath, life force or vital energy, the flow of energy that sustains living beings. Qi is pronounced ‘chee’, as in cheese.
Gong or Kung means skill, work or cultivation, a promise of gradual attainment, the idea of reward given for work done. "When you cultivate the fields well, you are rewarded with an abundant crop." Gong is pronounced ‘gung’, as in lung. Dao or Tao means the Way or Path, the natural flow of everything, nature at work. Dao is pronounced 'dow', as in cow.
Tai Chi or Taiji, translates as “Supreme Ultimate”, is a martial art form of Qigong. Qigong is the underlying principle behind all true martial arts. Tai Chi can take many years to learn, whereas most Qigong forms tend to be shorter, often with more repetitions making them easier to learn and remember, thus offering up its health benefits more readily than Tai Chi.
