Qigong is the perfect fit for any athlete who strives for excellence. It involves the synchronization of soft, fluid movements along with deep breathing. In this manner, a practitioner of Qigong learns to draw in large amounts of oxygen into the body. Short, speedy, shallow breaths are not healthy, and often not in synch with your movements. In Qigong, you will learn to be conscious of your breathing as well as how and when to breathe.

You will gradually build your strength and flexibility at your own pace because Qigong’s movements are not as demanding as kungfu. And because it focuses on soft, fluid movements, it is less impactful on joints. You will see an improvement in your performance of other activities because Qigong is an excellent supplement to any training. You will strengthen your core and become more stabilized, learn to be aware of your breathing and focus on how it can maximize your efforts.
