Qigong (pronounced like “chee gung”) refers to a wide variety of “cultivation practices” that involve conscious breathing and Tai Chi movement.

Instead of an entire sequence of movements, qigong is often short basic movements that generate healing energy to address 

imbalance and even illness in the body. Sometimes it is preferred over the Tai Chi Form since the movements are simpler to learn and practice on one’s own.
