Presented by Sifu Bill Smith
Qi Gong, or energy development exercises, were developed in China by monks and mystics to provide robust energy and overall health to support their meditation practice. Now you can learn these ancient health giving practices in the privacy of your own home with Wuji, the first Qi Gong learning app for iPhone.
Sifu Bill Smith has over 30 years of experience practicing and teaching Tai Chi Chuan and Qi Gong moving meditation. He has assembled a collection of ancient Qi Gong exercises into the Return to Wuji set presented here. The Return to Wuji Qi Gong set is broken down into 9 lessons. Master each lesson before going on to practicing the entire set straight through, in a single session.
Each lesson is broken up into 3 videos - beginning, tips & corrections and practice.

No experience is required, Wuji can be used by anyone from absolute beginners to more advanced Qi Gong practitioners.

What is QiGong?
Qi Gong (Chi Kung) consists of a series of physical postures and movements combined with mental imagery and focused intent, and has been used to provide grounding, increased personal awareness and development of deeper meditative states. Within these exercises, body, mind and spirit work together to produce the results. This soft, moving meditation has been practiced in China for millennia. There are many flavors and several types of Qi Gong, practiced for different reasons, e.g. martial arts, health, relaxation, spiritual development and even longevity. In fact, the internal martial art Tai Chi Chuan, is a form of Qi Gong. There is ample evidence for QiGong's health benefits, in published journals and controlled studies around the world.

Ratings and Reviews
Easy to follow
The app looks great and the color scheme is quite nice. It's so hard to find a good Qi Gong instructor but with this app you have one accessible at all times. It's easy to tell he's an expert once you try. There's also breathing and meditation techniques that are really really useful to watch and apply. Overall, have to say it's solid.
As a beginner this is a fantastic app! Easy to do, understand, and practice! I feel more centered and clear! I highly recommend!
Excellent learning tool!
This is a great app! I have already learnt so much and am looking forward to what I will learn in the future.
