In China, the way to vibrant health does not lead to the doctor's office; it is as close as the air we breathe. In Qigong, you will learn ancient techniques for harnessing the massive power of qi- literally, the "vital breath," or energy of the universe. Thousands of years before the establishment of Western medicine, Chinese masters perfected a system of gentle movements and meditative postures that can channel qi into the body for detoxifying, energizing, and healing. Ken Cohen, preeminent qigong master in the West, now presents these authentic practices.
