Qigong is self-initiated moving meditation consisting of a combination of movement, self-massage, meditation and breathing. Qigong practice puts the body into the relaxation/regeneration state . Qigong can be done anywhere, anytime. It is excellent for stress reduction, prevention of illness, dealing with chronic illness, healthy and active aging, and longevity.

The word Qigong (“chee-gung”), translated roughly as ‘Energy techniques’ or ‘Energy Skills,’ refers to the ancient Chinese internal arts used since pre-historic times to promote health, emotional happiness and spiritual development. These methods combine movement or postures, breath or mantra, and mind-intention to balance and enhance one’s vital, life-energy. It has been popularly referred to as Chinese yoga and moving meditation. These methods formed the early root of Chinese medicine and are still considered an integral part of modern Chinese medicine, along with acupuncture, acupressure, and herbal medicine. Today, millions of people practice Qigong in China and around the world to successfully treat a myriad of diseases, to improve general health, support longevity, and to promote psycho-spiritual growth and happiness. Qigong is a combination of Qi (life-force, energy, creativity, consciousness, breath, function) and gong (cultivation or practice over time).

Tai Chi is the ancient art of gentle flowing movements to reduce the stress of today’s busy lifestyles and improve health. Tai chi is sometimes described as “meditation in motion” because it promotes serenity through gentle movements — connecting the mind and body. Originally developed in ancient China for self-defense, tai chi evolved into a graceful form of exercise that’s now used for stress reduction and to help with a variety of other health conditions.

Tai chi, also called tai chi chuan, is a noncompetitive, self-paced system of gentle physical exercise and stretching. To do tai chi, you perform a series of postures or movements in a slow, graceful manner. Each posture flows into the next without pause, ensuring that your body is in constant motion..

Yoga is an ancient art based on a harmonizing system of development for the body, mind, and spirit. Ancient Yogis had a belief that in order for man to be in harmony with himself and his environment, he has to integrate the body, the mind, and the spirit. For these three to be integrated, emotion, action, and intelligence must be in balance. The Yogis formulated a way to achieve and maintain this balance and it is done through exercise, breathing, and meditation- the three main Yoga structures.

In Yoga, the body is treated with care and respect for it is the primary instrument in man’s work and growth. Yoga exercises improve circulation, stimulate the abdominal organs, and put pressure on the glandular system of the body, which can generally result to better health.

Breathing techniques were developed based on the concept that breath is the source of life. In Yoga, students gain breathing control as they slowly increase their breathing.

In meditation, students bring the activities of the mind into focus resulting in a ‘quiet’ mind. By designing physical poses and breathing techniques that develop awareness of our body, Yoga helps us focus and relieves us from our everyday stress.

One may think that Bodhi Yuj™ is from India and China. This is not the full truth. Bodhi Yuj™ is a blend of all traditions for modern practical application. As not everyone is attracted to certain faiths and religions. This is not towards any specific faith. It is new but yet has been around since the first flower bloomed on Planet Earth. It pertains to the body of knowledge that is in every living thing here. A method to guide you within, revealing and unlocking that treasure inside. As life imprints us with too much programming, Bodhi Yuj™ teaches to put down the book for a bit and journey within. Begin to be taught by the self itself, the self in which you are. Once you rid the programming of others, life is beautiful. Clear the waters and experience the oceans and rivers of bliss.
