Qigong 气功

... (chin.: 气功, pron.: “chigung”) is a centuries-old chinese form of exercises. It is not only part of the traditional Chinese medicine, but also the basis of asian martial arts, especially the so called "internal martial arts" (“Nèigōng”)

Qìgōng fulfills basically three functions:

  • Healing and preserving own health
  • Healing others and
  • Self defense

The exercises have their origin in a legendary era. The “Yellow Emperor” Huángdì, who is reported to have ruled from 2696 to 2598 BC, is considered as the author of the first text, the “Huángdì Nèijīng”, which already contains the concepts of Qì, of Yīn and Yáng and the five elements or “five phases” (Wǔxíng) of chinese philosophy.

By pratice of deepest possible relaxation within given structures and in motion, the intent of the exercises is to achieve a maximum energetic permeability of the body - and thereby to unleash maximum power.
