I first started practicing qi gong back in acupuncture school. Qi is our vital life force in our bodies. Gong means cultivation. So, qi gong is the cultivation of our life force and one of the ways we can use to achieve balance in our body's energy. We reach out to the three types of energy when doing this – heavenly qi, earthly qi, and human qi. Try this simple movement outlined in this video and see what effect is has on your breathing, your body, and your energy.
