Qigong or Chi kung or prana force, is the philosophy and practice of aligning breath, physical activity and awareness for mental, spiritual and corporeal health, as well as the development of human potential. It includes certain forms of martial arts and the spiritual awakening to one’s true nature. The traditional Chinese medical community uses qigong for preventive and curative functions. Dynamic training involves choreographed movement and applies to physical/mental disciplines such as Tai Chi Chuan. Static training requires the practioner to maintain the body in a particular posture. Meditative training utilizes visualization, mantra, philosopohical concepts such as qi circulation and breath awareness. source: Wikipedia
