Qigong translates as “internal energy work or skill,” and refers to a broad range of gentle, mind/body/spirit integrative exercises that can include dynamic movement, standing, sitting, and breath work. Qigong is also the foundation of the art of Taijiquan. The Wuji Hundun Qigong system is a comprehensive workout involving deep, diaphragmatic breathing combined with extensive stretching to facilitate healthy Qi flow. While accessible and easy to learn the basic movements, the Wuji system can evolve into a fluid, spontaneous, and infinitely creative whole body workout that can be deeply transformative. With practice, one can access a deeper union with qi, nature and the pathways of energetic movement. Great for beginners!
