Qi Gong Movement and Meditation
As a practice, qi gong has existed in Chinese culture for thousands of years. It is meditation practice, a practice of spiritual development, a holistic wellness system of exercise and method of movement based practice that helps to balance the mind, body, and spirit of the practitioner. Historically, these practices developed through Taoist and Buddhist practices as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine where qi gong is one of five branches of treatment and regulation.
There are innumerable styles of qi gong practice. Our practice at Manitou consists of a variety of practices organized into forms that are accessible and available to people of all abilities and ages.
