Nei Chi Kung

     NeiKung, also spelled NeiGong, NeiGung, or Nae Gong, refers to any of a set of Chinese breathing, meditation and spiritual practice disciplines associated with Taoism and especially the Chinese martial arts. NeiKung practice is normally associated with the so-called "soft style", "internal" or NeiJia 內家 Chinese martial arts, as opposed to the category known as WaiKung 外功 or "external skill" WàiJiā 外家 Chinese martial arts. Both have many different schools, disciplines and practices and historically there has been mutual influence between the two and distinguishing precisely between them differs from school to school. There are both martial and non-martial. An example of non-martial NeiKung is internal meditation exercises of Inner Smile, Micro Cosmic Orbit, or Kan and Li. Currently, there is no standardize system of Nei Kung. Each and every teacher has a different method in teaching the exercises. The exercises, themselves, will vary greatly from teacher to teacher. However, the exercises or "in Taoist terminology" formulas do have a natural progression of one level to the next. The 8 chamber method is designed to follow this progression that corresponds to ancient Tradition Chinese Medicine Theory.
