QIGONG (Chi Kung) is made up of two Chinese words. Qi is pronounced "chee" and is usually translated to mean the life force or vital-energy that flows through all things in the universe. The second word, Gong, pronounced "gung," means work or skill that is cultivated through steady practice. Together, Qigong (Chi Kung) means cultivating energy. It is an ancient Chinese practice that uses gentle, repetitive movements while sitting or standing. The movements are performed slowly to create a meditative quality and increase energy flow in the body. At Hanuman Yoga Retreat, we practice Shenzen, Chow, and Shibashi QiGong. Above is a sample of Chow QiGong (created by and featuring Effie Chow) and Shenzen QiGong.
