The art of Qigong originated in China over a thousand years ago.

Qi means Energy, the energy that is naturally flowing in the body, and which permeates all living things. With an airy, lively quality, it has no shape and will fill any space if there is one. Similar to blood in its function, it makes any being, (human or animal) alive. In the body the Qi follows certain routes, which are known as meridians. When the Qi is weak, the body is weak; when the Qi is blocked the body gets sick; when the Qi stops flowing, there is no life.

The Cultivation of Qi, known as Qigong, awakens and improves physical and mental health and helps to actualise all personal potential. Hua Gong is an artistic style of Qigong focusing on cultivating health and spiritual development.

Hua means transformation, integration and liberation. It is mainly practised through simple energetic body movements and meditation.

The integration of Qigong principles into daily life is also an important part of the practice.

Benefits of QiGong

Prevention and improving health

Prevention is better than cure. Those who consider themselves healthy can prevent future illness and greatly improve their health.

Healing and recovery

The healing power of Qigong is probably the most important reason for its popularity. Many people have recovered from serious illness and experienced profound transformation in their health and life through Hua Gong.

Longevity

Daoist Masters take longevity as the highest goal of Qigong practice. Dying of illness is like a flame blowing out in the middle of a candle. Sustaining good health to the very end of our life is the real test of a high level accomplishment of Qigong practice.

More freedom in life

We learn how to take care of our own health with Hua gong and are better able to restore the balance when we occasionally feel unwell. This frees us greatly from the suffering due to illness and old age.
