Simply put, Qigong is the art of deliberately managing your vital energy. It is easier to learn than Tai Chi and less strenuous than Yoga. Qigong combines simple external body movements with gentle breathing methods and is performed in a meditative state of mind. It is the oldest of the five branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), practiced by millions of people daily worldwide and has a written record going back 5000 years. It requires zero athleticism or investment in equipment. If you can spare 10-15 minutes a day, you can practice this art. In case you were wondering, Chi Kung and Qigong are different spellings of the same thing.
