We are always looking for something to ground us, make us feel better, improve our mental state, and speed up recovery. Yoga has become such a huge phenomenon in the world today that we can't remember what it was like without it. What if we discovered something that may replace yoga for some people? What if we told you that many elite athletes use a method called Quigong instead of yoga to unwind both mentally and physically? Would you be interested in trying it?

Zen master and blogger Anthony Korahais thinks so.
“Once people start to realize what qigong [pronounced chee-gong] can really do — help you get to peak performance and stay there — then everyone will be using it,” Korahais, who first used the practice to heal debilitating anxiety and clinical depression, tells GrindTV.
But what is it? Think of qigong as the grandmother of tai chi, an ancient Asian practice — and one of the four branches of traditional Chinese medicine — that combines gentle breathing, flowing movements and mindfulness meditation.
