Discover Chi Kung

CCOM 4027

Improve your health and try something new with Chi Kung. Chi Kung (also known as Qigong and chi gung) has its roots in Chinese medicine, martial arts and philosophy. It's the practice of aligning breathing, movement, and awareness for the purpose of exercise, healing, and meditation. With Master Yue Ming Chen as your guide, you'll learn a set of Chi Kung (Qi Gong) steps called the Ten Complete Treasures of Chi Kung. Chi Kung has also been credited with helping to relieve stress and pain.
