~Chi~

Chi, also spelled qi, is life force energy or vital life of a living being in traditional Chinese philosophy, religion and medicine. The concept is similar to prana in Hinduism and yoga philosophy. Chi means “breath” or “air” and is often translated as “energy flow,” “life force” or “matter energy.”

Just as prana moves through the body via channels called nadis and passes through the chakras, chi is believed to move through meridians and three energy gateways called dan tiens – one each in the pelvic region, the heart center and the third-eye center.
