Qi Gong is a moving form of mediation, coordinating breath with a series of slow, gentle movements. It improves balance and energy, and promotes a sense of well being. When practiced regularly, Qi Gong has been found to strengthen the body's immune system and regenerate the body to sideline symptoms of many ailments, including Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Parkinson's, and MS. It may be practiced in a sitting or standing position.--Ernest
