Qigong is a traditional Chinese health practice that combines meditation, breathing, relaxation, and stretching techniques. Through coordination of breath and movement, relaxation and stretches are done in a standing position to help strengthen the body while promoting overall health. The 5 Elements Qigong creates a balance of the 5 major organ systems of the body as classified in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), including the heart, kidneys, lungs, and digestive systems. Each of the key postures also helps body alignment in both the skeletal and muscular system. Wudang Five Elements Qigong details not only the movements of the qigong itself but also the muscular anatomy of each movement, as well as the connection of each movement to the elements and internal organs taught in traditional Chinese medicine.
