Qigong or Chi kung (气功 or prana force) is the philosophy and practice of aligning breath, physical activity and awareness for mental, spritual and corporeal health, as well as the development of human potential. It includes certain forms of martial arts and the spiritual awakening to one's true nature.

Qigong or Chi kung is an English form for two Chinese characters: Qì (氣) and Gōng (功). The dictionary definition for the word “qi” usually involved the meaning of “breathing”, “air”, “gas” and “vapor” but it can also be used in the context of describing the relationship between matter, energy and spirit. "Qi" or "chi" is also known as a focus point for energy in martial arts.

The dictionary definition for the word “Gong” (功) is force or power with the focus upon achievement and results. The two words are combined to describe systems and methods of “energy cultivation” and the manipulation of intrinsic energy within living organisms.
