Meditation or a deep state of relaxation is an essential part of any Qigong practice. Meditation is considered a static form of Qigong. Like the concept of Yin and Yang, a well-balanced Qigong practice would combine dynamic and static forms of exercises.
In the eastern philosophies, our physical and emotional well-being is dependant on the free flow of energy in the body. Disruption in the flow can lead to imbalances in the system. By taking a few moments each day to relax and be still, we can enhance the flow of energy throughout the body, manage stress and anxiety, become more intuitive that aid decision making and find inner peace no matter where you are.
