Standing Chi Kung (Qigong) 

"Drink life from the 
air that you breathe."

A long held secret of the Chinese internal 
martial arts, standing chi kung, known as 
zhan zhuang, has been a key practice for 
building energy, opening vital chi channels, 
and for meditation. In China it is also known 
for helping to heal a wide range of physical 
ailments. It is the practice associated with 
the so-called macrocosmic orbit of chi circulation, 
known to Taoists as, "The Greater Wheel 
of Heaven." In tai chi chuan training, it is often 
referred to as Wujishi Breathing Meditation.
