Qi is a Chinese expression for the universal energy which permeates universe and human beings. Gong is abbreviation for Gong Fu and means concentrated work, persistent effort and continual self-cultivation. So, the meaning of Qigong is long and continuous work with energy.

Qigong can be defined as art, science and philosophy. By practicing Qigong we cultivate our body, mind and spirit and we can achieve high level of health and general well-being. The highest purpose of Qigong was to achieve spiritual awakening.

Qigong is the foundation of Chinese martial arts, traditional Chinese medicine and stays also in the center of the Chinese philosophy and religion.

Qigong is Chinese ancient discipline which was hidden for thousands of years and was preserved mainly as esoteric practice inside the walls of Daoist and Buddhist monasteries. Qigong was throughout most of the history unknown to the Western world and also to the greater part of Chinese population.

Qigong unites movement, breathing and meditation, emphasizing natural posture and relaxation. Through the practice we strengthen our body and mental focus, we develop sensibility for the energy of our bodies and achieve a feeling of vitality and inner peace.
