LONDON - Dressed in bright yellow uniforms, 14 children from England's Fibbersley Park Academy perform Baduanjin ("eight-section brocade"), one of the most common forms of Chinese qigong exercise, together with nearly 300 adults at the opening ceremony of the third European Health Qigong Games.

After one year of practice, these future qigong stars, aged 6 to 11, were invited to demonstrate qigong at the games, on Aug 28 at the University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield.

Rheeya, 11, says that she was lucky to be selected to join the qigong club at school and she now likes practicing it every day by herself at home.
