What is Qigong?
Qigong (pronounced “chi gong,”) involves slow, gentle physical exercises as well as breathing techniques to work with the practitioner’s body, mind, and life-force energy (or qi). Qigong’s mind/body discipline focuses on improving and maintaining one’s health and well-being.

Qigong for Relaxation, Prevention & Health
Qigong was developed in China thousands of years ago as part of traditional Chinese medicine.
It’s self-message techniques are relaxing and meditative, but the exercises are also used as preventative medicine to improve health. Some of its benefits include:

  • Improving bone health by stimulating bone marrow growth
  • Working with flexibility in the tendons and ligaments
  • Helping the mobility in knees and hips
  • Aligning the spine
  • Strengthening the qi stored in the internal organs
  • Working with increasing subtlety with the body, energy and consciousness through progressive levels
  • And much more

Daoist Qigong With Dr. Eva Wong
Daoist Qigong is what is taught at Karmê Chöling through Dr. Eva Wong. Daoist qigong is a spiritual discipline that cultivates body and mind simultaneously. Dr. Eva Wong is a traditional qigong lineage holder handing down Outer and Inner Qigong from two systems: the Pre-celestial Limitless Gate School (Xiantianwujimen) and the Yiquan School.

Xiantianwujimen was founded in the Song dynasty (circa 10th to 12th centuries) by Daoist sage Chen Xiyi, who is recognized as “the father of qigong.” Eva Wong is the 19th-generation carrier (quanren) of this lineage.

The Yiquan School was founded by Wang Xiangzhai in the early 20th century. Yiquan is best known for its standing qigong postures called Zhangzhuan. One of Master Wang’s students was the Luhe Bafa master Sun Di. Eva Wong is a student of Sun Di and carries the direct transmission of Wang Xiangzhai’s Yiquan.
