Most qigong sets start with some kind of opening move to create better breathing and to stimulate the chi or qi. One of the main reasons for doing this is to give you the opportunity to clear your mind and focus on your exercises

We often do this qi exercise - Awakening the Chi - several times in a session as we do different sets of warms ups and a variety of short qi gong patterns.
