  • Qi Gong: a form of exercise involving a set of flowing movements designed to build one’s inner energy called “Chi”. Some describe it as a combination of moving yoga and meditation. Others describe it as a non-violent form of martial arts. It originated in ancient China evolving from philosophical principles of Taoism and Confucianism.
