Chi Kung Warm Up


chi kung warm up Chi Kung is a term used to describe various forms of exercise where breathing is of central importance. However, the term is generally used to refer, not simply to any breathing exercise, but only to those which make use of the breath to either increase, balance, or control the chi (the essential life-force of all living things) .

Chi means air. Chi Kung means to practice the process of breathing to increase chi pressure (life-force pressure). It is this awareness and concern of this chi that set Chi Kung apart from orthodox physical or mental exercises -which treat the mind and the body as two separate entities. Reference may be made to the study of Kinematics - the science of motion without reference to force: therefore considering the curing of illness through muscular movements.

This guide gives eight basic chi kung excersises. Their instruction may vary slightly from teacher to teacher.
