Strong, Silent Exercise

According to the Akron Beacon, many Americans are being drawn to the Chinese healing art Qigong, better known to Easterners through its subset, Tai Chi.

Qigong is a series of what appear to be simple deep-breathing exercises and subtle movements, such as flexing torso muscles.

Qigong is a centuries-old Chinese healing art that Americans are rediscovering. Some upscale health clubs and spas have added classes, and companies such as Prudential Financial and Mattel are offering qigong workshops for employees.

Even golfers are exploring the possibilities on strength of a rumor that Tiger Woods practiced qigong as a child.
