Ki Gong is a system of Korean exercises that stimulate and develop the mind, body and spirit. Ki, pronounced "key", is the energy that flows through your body. Ki Gong is the method used to balance the energy in your body to improve your own health and wellness.
Regardless of your condition or age, practicing Ki Gong will benefit you by improving your circulatory system, stimulating your immune system, and strengthening your internal organs.
Ki Gong has been known to increase flexibility, metabolism and blood circulation; improve balance, muscle and respiratory control; reduce stress; and increase blood oxidation. Ki Gong is a gentle form of exercise that can be beneficial from a standing or sitting position.

Ramona has been practicing and teaching Ki Gong since 2006, using her Ki Gong practice to help her through some challenging medical moments in her life. Rebecca has been practicing Ki Gong since 2010 and she enjoys using her practice for relaxation and to help her farm animals through stressful times.

Grandmaster Shin shares his thoughts about Ki Gong: "The purpose of Ki Gong is to give individuals the opportunity to realize their own personal power by stimulating the Ki energy circulation activating the body's natural healing power. This is an enriching experience, regardless of age, or physical ability. With regular practice of the Ki Gong, it is possible to keep blood and energy circulation flowing smoothly throughout the entire body. This will enable you to relax more easily and bring a feeling of peace, joy and a positive attitude."
