Finding balance in every aspect of your life

Qigong was developed in China thousands of years ago as a component of traditional Chinese medicine. It is based on the Chinese philosophy of Qi, which refers to the vital energy present throughout the universe.
• Meaning: The term “Qigong” is composed of two Chinese words: “Qi” which means “energy” or “vital breath”, and “Gong” which means “work” or “cultivation”. Thus, Qigong can be translated as “energy work” or “energy cultivation”.
• Practice: Qigong involves the use of physical exercises, slow movements, specific postures, breathing techniques and meditation to cultivate and regulate Qi in the body. It aims to balance vital energy, strengthen the body and mind, and promote health and well-being.
• Benefits: Qigong is considered a holistic practice that can have many health benefits. It can improve blood circulation, strengthen the immune system, reduce stress and anxiety, increase flexibility and balance, and promote relaxation and mental clarity.
• Philosophy: Qigong is deeply rooted in Chinese philosophy, particularly in the concepts of Yin and Yang, the circulation of Qi in the body’s meridians, and the harmony between man and nature. It is often practiced outdoors to connect with the energy of nature.
In summary, Qigong is an important practice in Chinese culture. It combines physical exercises, slow movements, breathing techniques and meditation to cultivate and regulate vital energy in the body. Qigong is valued for its many health benefits and its deep connection to Chinese philosophy.

0. Moving Meditation: Qigong is often described as a form of moving meditation. By focusing on your movements and breathing during practice, you can detach yourself from negative thoughts and emotions.

0. Energy balance: According to Chinese medicine, emotions are linked to energy imbalances in the body. Qi Gong helps restore energy balance by stimulating the circulation of Qi, vital energy.

It is important to note that Qi Gong does not replace medical treatment or professional therapy for managing emotions. However, it can be used as an effective supplement to promote emotional well-being.

The posture of Wu Ji

In Qi Gong, the posture of “Wu Ji”

is also fundamental and shares similarities with the posture of the same name in tai chi chuan. The “Wu Ji” posture in Qi Gong is often used as a starting position for many exercises, meditations and sequences.
To perform the “Wu Ji” posture in Qi Gong, stand with your feet parallel, shoulder-width apart, knees slightly bent, pelvis slightly tilted forward, back straight, shoulders relaxed. and arms relaxed along the body. The palms of the hands may face forward or inward, depending on the specific tradition of Qigong practice.
The posture of “Wu Ji” in Qi Gong aims to promote relaxation, grounding, concentration and circulation of internal energy. It also helps develop body awareness and create a state of calm and centeredness conducive to the practice of Qi Gong energy exercises.
As in tai chi chuan, the posture of “Wu Ji” in Qi Gong is considered the basis from which one can develop a balanced and harmonious practice, promoting postural alignment, conscious breathing and fluid circulation of the Qi (vital energy).
