A Standing Qigong Practice
A Peaceful Standing Meditation
For the Body. For the Breath. For the Mind.
Qigong, pronounced “chi kung”, is an “ancient formula for flow.” An ancient healing art form over 5,000 years old, Qigong has over 10,000 different forms. They range from long studied and specialized medicine to the simple form of a Standing Meditation which is what It’s About the Qi offers.
Qi is Chinese for energy. The gong in Qigong is cultivation or practice. In this standing Qigong practice, and with this ancient formula for flow, we create a way to help reduce stress in our bodies. As we know, stress is 90-95% at the root of most illnesses. Here in the West it is acknowledged that by practicing this Standing Meditation, we learn to help control our autonomic nervous system. We can bring this system from “fight to flight” to “rest and digest.” While we are awake, standing and mentally focused, we can bring ourselves into the Parasympathetic State.
Our online Standing Qigong Practice is a moving meditation, accomplished through body alignment, breath and mindfulness, and it is ready for you to stream on your mobile phone, tablet, television, home computer, or laptop. Rather than going to your local YMCA or community center to learn this beginner’s practice, we bring it directly to you to use at your convenience, any time day or night.
After all, It’s About The Qi.”

In Qigong, certain ailments might require a particular breath cycle which might compel an audible exhalation or complete physical movements.
It really is not uncommon for Qigong to be referred to as Chinese Yoga. It’s become a bit of a catchphrase in the West when trying to explain Qigong.
