Qigong practices are an integration of physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intentions. Qigong (pronounced chee gung) translates to mean life force or vital-energy (qi) that flows through all things in the universe and cultivation and accomplishment of a skill through practice (gong). Together the words mean cultivating energy for health and wellbeing.

Spring Forest Qigong (SFQ) is a simple, effective, and efficient form of qigong developed to help you find health, healing, balance, and energy. For thousands of years the practice of qigong was a closely-guarded secret revealed only to a chosen few.

Master Chunyi Lin, founder of SFQ, went against ancient tradition and created an accessible form of qigong. What distinguishes SFQ from other qigong schools is its simplicity. Spring Forest Qigong’s unique appeal is that everyone can learn the practice regardless of age, ability, belief system or life circumstances and reap the benefits.

Spring Forest Qigong is a form of Qigong developed by Master Chunyi Lin that is really powerful to free someone’s energy and promote healing.”

The body has rivers of energy running through it, which are also known as energy meridians. When blockages occur and stop the flow of energy in these meridians or channels, then energy cannot flow where it needs to go in the body. Illness, disease, pain and other health problems may occur with energy blockages.

Qigong movements, breathing techniques and meditation focus on helping to open and maintain these channels so your body can heal and you can maintain a healthy and well balanced life.

Spring Forest Qigong helps maintain health, heal bodies, calm minds, and reconnect with spirit. Anyone can enrich their lives by adding Qigong to their daily routine. Spring Forest Qigong’s gentle moving meditation is practiced in homes, workplaces, prisons, community centers, practice groups and more. The Spring Forest Qigong Institute invites you to learn more, share your practice with others, or consider a partnership or class to help promote physical, mental, emotional and spiritual healing.

 Spring Forest Qigong is going to revolutionize
the manner in which we look at healing.”
