Columbia, Missouri Event: Dr. Chow made Qigong easy and magical

Article from National Tai Chi Examiner by Violet Li Read full article and pictures here Qi is pronounced “chi” and means “life vital force” or “breath”. Gong means work. Qigong means the exercise people practice to cultivate Qi via proper breathing. Even though human beings breathe all the time, most people do not breathe accurately or know what Qi is. But Tai Chi and Qigong practitioners feel the buoyancy (or Qi) when practicing the art. Undoubtedly, Qi and Qigong seem foreign or even mysterious to millions of people.
