Using the Breath to Supercharge Your Qigong

New Students Welcome!

Energy Gates Qigong is a 3,000-year-old self-healing qigong (qigong) system from China. This qigong practice is for those who are serious about learning tai chi, qigong or any form of energy work.

  • make movements smoother and more circular
  • wake up the spine
