What is Qigong?
Qi means “energy” or “oxygen.” Gong mean “the work of” or “practice of.”
Therefore, Qigong is the practice of moving oxygen and life force energy into and throughout the body. I personally like to describe it as a “moving meditation.”
SPRING FOREST QIGONG CLASSES Coming in 2018!
For thousands of years, the practice of Qigong was a closely-guarded secret revealed only to a chosen few. Even today, traditional qigong techniques can require years of rigid, disciplined practice to develop proficiency. Many qigong masters also do not explain why or how qigong works.
Master Chun yi Lin (below with myself in 2011) has demystified and simplified qigong so it can be practiced and understood by anyone. SFQ is explained from the energetic, emotional, and spiritual perspectives. Spring Forest Qigong has many characteristics which make it incredibly effective.
Most qigong forms are very traditional and very old. They were first developed to work with lifestyles of humans in ancient times. Back then, physical work and physical movements were large components of many people’s lives, so meditation was a larger focus in qigong.
