Qigong (Say "Chee Gong")

Qigong is a word that has come to refer to a number of different types of yoga-like exercise systems in China. These approaches to mental and physical health have ancient roots going back thousands of years. They are used for recreation, fitness, relaxation, preventative medicine, healing, self-cultivation, meditation, athletic performance and martial arts training.
