What do Oprah Winfrey and Tiger Woods have in common? They’re both fans of an ancient mind-body practice known as qigong (pronounced “chee-gong”).
The term “qigong” is a combination of two words: "qi," which means “subtle breath” or “vital energy,” and "gong," which translates to “skill cultivated through steady practice.”
Together, the words describe an age-old practice that harnesses the power of breath, movement, and intention setting to create health and balance within the body.
Read on to learn what qigong is, where it came from, its potential health and wellness benefits, and how to begin a practice.
