Qigong 气功[1] consists mainly of exercises to maintain healthfulness. It includes numerous methods such as exercises to support the self healing powers, exercises in movement like Baduanjin 八段锦[2], as well as a quiet breathing and standing practice. Combined with mental training these exercises relax and increase your power of concentration and your efficiency. Working with Qi 力[3] noticeably improves physical and mental wellness and increases personal balance.

Qigong can also be a stepping-stone towards more advanced forms of meditations like Yiquan Yangsheng 意拳养生 and Chan 禅.
