Qi Gong is an ancient art, coordinating gentle movement with breathing techniques - a moving meditation for self-cultivation and healing. [1]

Regular and consistent practice has been shown in research to provide increased flexibility, improved bone density, balance, immune function, psychological well-being, and an overall improvement of quality of life. [2]  For additional research, see our page on research.

Five Element Qigong

5 Element Qi Gong is a system of 5 simple exercises that relate to the 5 elements: metal, water, wood, fire & earth.  In Chinese metaphysics, the 5 elements can also be described as 5 phases or five categories as a means to conceptualize life, both in nature and the human experience.  This system of categories can be applied to the human body, to cycles of time, to mental aspects, and even colors.
 

With respect to the 5 Element Qi Gong form, the 5 categories are applied to movements, which relate to certain groups of muscles, vessels, and joints.
 

Each exercise has unique functions to benefit specific muscles groups, joints, and internal organs.  The 5 Element Qi Gong exercises can be used to address diseases and imbalances in the body, mind or emotions in order to cultivate wellness. [3]
 

You will learn these exercises and receive individual instruction so you can feel comfortable practicing them on your own.

Wang Ji Wu Qi Gong

Wang Ji Wu - another style of Qi Gong - is a set of 16 exercises that systematically stretch, strengthen and mobilize all of the joints in the body. As we age and for very active athletes regardless of age, it is very important to ensure full range of motion in the joints by lengthening the connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and muscles. 

The Wang Ji Wu system of Qi Gong also improves the functioning of your internal organs and systems. Through increased circulation and nerve function, your body is able to physiologically self-regulate to create a more harmonious state of internal balance. It might sound complicated, but put very simply, you will feel better practicing qi gong!
