Qigong is a series of exercises which have been developed through the science of Traditional Chinese Medicine and are used in the prevention and treatment of disease.
By combining subtle movement, breath control and concentration, Qigong can stimulate the flow of qi, or vital force, through the organs, tissues, and cells of the body. This has a direct effect on the circulatory and nervous systems, and endocrine secretions.
Research has shown Qigong can restore normal function to internal organs, restore the cerebral cortex (brain) to its normal calm and alert state from overexcitation and fatigue, and improve the function of the immune system.
Qigong techniques and exercises are interwoven into the curriculum of all classes at the Academy, as well as taught separately in classes, workshops, and private lessons.
